FABULOUS recipe. I have made these before and they were a big hit! I'm not a big cookie fan, but these are irresistable. Made a double batch last night in my Bosch, and saved some dough in the fridge to make some more over the next few days. I forgot to buy cream of tartar after I made them last time, so got to that step & was trying to figure out what to do...when came to the rescue: I went to and found out that you can substitute 1 t. of cream of tartar with 2 t. of lemon juice or vinegar. I opted for the lemon juice, and WOW, you'd never know the difference between the recipe with the cream of tartar and the one with the lemon juice! Just a hint for anyone else in the same predicament :) Thanks for this awesome recipe, it will be a favorite forever. Also, to keep your cookies soft, you can add the heal of a loaf of bread to your container of cookies/cookie jar. Or else lightly spray with water the tops & microwave for 10 secs. or so (time depends on your microwave) to give it that fresh-from-the-oven taste. Just a tip :)
