Michelle's Soft Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
I am surprised by all of the rave reviews of this recipe. First, I agree with other reviewers that the dough is very sticky and difficult to work with unless you use a lot of flour while rolling which makes the cookies dry and taste like flour. I should have tried rolling it between parchment paper as other reviewers suggested so that is my fault. The texture of the finished product is good but the cookies expand quite a bit and didn't work with some of my more intricate cookie cutters. Lastly, I agree with other reviewers that the cookies have a strange aftertaste due to the cream of tartar. I had a cup of tea after eating two cookies and I can still taste the sour/bitter aftertaste of the cream of tartar. I assume the amount of cream of tartar is what helps give the cookies more volume so one would have to experiment with using less. I did like the fact that the cookies were not too sweet which is good if you are going to use icing. I will have to experiment with this recipe.
