"This recipe I revised from my grandma's Christmas angel roll-out cookies. They are sort of cakey, but this can be reduced by omitting half of the cream of tartar, though I prefer them thick and soft. Top with your favorite cream cheese or basic cookie frosting. I find it's best with almond extract and coconut on top. Enjoy!" — LITTLEBAKERSIRI

granulated sugar, or more to taste
1 1/4 teaspoons
cream of tartar
This is an EXCELLENT recipe! I added a little salt but that is all I did differently. The dough was very easy to handle and I believe this will become a go to recipe for sugar cookies.
My cookies didn't look like the previous baker's photo! Mine turned out very puffy and were done in 8 minutes--they would have burned in the stated 12 minutes. I knew these cookies were going to be cakey, but I felt that there wasn't enough flavor to the cookie itself---they relied too much on the frosting to make them tasty. I kept going over the recipe to make sure I'd done it correctly, too. Sorry about this review sounding negative. I love cookies!
