Cracked Sugar Cookies I
April 05, 2007

I just made these and they turned out great. I live in Norway and had to make a few substitutions. First off, I've only seen vanilla flavoring, which is blech. So I used a vanilla bean instead. Of course it gives the cookies the little black flecks, but the taste is so much better. I also have never seen cream of tartar here. I know you can use lemon juice or vinegar as a substitute, but I didn't either. I did, however, have a lime in the fridge. I feel like lemons are slightly more acidic, so I used 2 teaspoons of lime juice in place of the cream of tartar. I don't have any kind of electric mixer. So I made these entirely by hand. And when I say hand, I mean hand! The dough is kind of hard to work with using just a spoon. So I literally went hands-in to mix it, as if it was bread dough. But like I said, they turned out great. They were very easy to form into balls for baking.
