brown sugar, packed
cream of tartar
white sugar for decoration
Simple and delicious! Not as flat as I imagined but who cares. I took suggestions and lowered the temp to 400F and placed the rack on the 2nd from top position. 7.5 minutes was perfect, they were just about to burn at 8 minutes. Used a small cookie scoop. Rolled them into balls and dipped the whole thing in sugar. I skipped the water step. I flattened them slightly before baking. Next time I'll try rolling in cinnamon sugar. This recipe is a keeper! P.S. Use a parchment lined sheet. I wouldn't never bake anything on an unlined sheet unless you like scrubbing.
I don't think the temperature/timing is correct for this recipe.
These are very much like what my husband's grandmother used to make. To keep the bottoms from browning too much we bake them on the third from the bottom rack instead of the middle one.
I cannot believe that more people have not tried and/or rated this recipe. I would give it ten stars if I could...it is so good!!!! I think I make them about every other week and every time I bring them somewhere I have SEVERAL people ask for the recipe. These will definitely be a favorite for anyone who tries, in my opinion. Thanks for the recipe:-)
This is the first recipe I ever got off of this site because it was easy and I was in 7th grade at the time, I'm now graduating college and still making these
I'm so glad I found this recipe. It's like a sugar cookie. But it sooo soft and good! I had more than one person ask for the recipe.
I have been looking for a light and crisp sugar cookie, and this one is wonderful!
These were very tastey and fluffy! I would read comments before making them. I put them in at 400 degrees for 8 minutes for an electric stove. gas ranges I would increase the temp and keep an eye on them. they do leave a small after taste but it doesn't take away from how delicious they are when eating them, just drink something after :D
