"My mom came to visit one summer, and we decided to bake cookies. Since I had just moved into my new home, I could not find any baking powder. My mom saved the day when she said 'We just have to make our own!'"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

cream of tartar
I did add the “optional cornstarch” and used this for making muffins...it worked. Cream of tartar is expensive, so at least for me, this won’t be a substitute for buying a can of baking powder, but if you’ve run out and don’t want to make a trip to the store, just mix up a small batch of this recipe.
I use this recipe a lot. Maybe it is just me but I do not like the flavor that baking powder adds in any recipe. I don't mind the extra expense, it's not that much more, since where we are located has a co-op that sells herbs, spices and other organic cooking supplies in bulk at a much lower cost than most of the big box stores. (And in the quantity that you really need)
Worked like a charm when I realized I was out! Thanks for saving the day.
