After reading through 25 reviews it was interesting to learn that those who didn't like this cookie ended up with a different cookie than I did! Considering some of those reviews, let's start with what these cookies, at least the cookies I made, are not. They're not crumbly, cakey, puffy or fluffy. Nor are they flaky, oily or moist. They're not shortbread. And they certainly don't fall apart. I'm no scientist, so I don't know the reason WHY this happens, but I do know that when I see a cookie recipe that calls for oil and cream of tartar the cookie is going to be light as a feather, airy, tender and somewhat sandy in texture. I love that kind of cookie and that's exactly how these turned out. If you're looking for the more familiar, chewy chocolate chip cookie, this is not it. It's different, like comparing apples and oranges, but every bit as delicious, if not better than a lot of them! Did I do something different than other reviewers whose experience was different than mine? I used a medium-sized cookie scoop, flattened the cookies just slightly and baked just until they started to get golden around the edges. These cookies, dotted with Valentine's Day M&M's, will be making their way to Minneapolis tomorrow to be given to two grown "kids." I'll be starting out with 36 good sized cookies. It will be interesting to see how many of these are left to give them after the 6-hour drive!
