Makes about: 20 tiny cookies (1 tsp scoop, using ¼ recipe)
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 10 minutes/batch

These cookies were crisp on the outside and soft on the inside and not too sweet. I replaced the cream of tartar plus baking soda with baking powder, since the internet told me this was an appropriate substitution. I also made a quarter of the original recipe, since I didn’t want to make a ton of cookies. Both recipes are included below.

Quarter recipe
½ cup + 3 tbsp flour
¾ tsp baking powder
1/16 tsp salt (a dash)
¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter
¼ cup + 2 tbsp sugar (or, 3/8 cup)
1 egg white

1 tbsp sugar
½ tbsp cinnamon

Full recipe
2 ¾ cup flour
2 tsp cream of tartar*
1 tsp baking soda* (can replace the cream of tartar and baking soda with 3 tsp baking powder)
¼ tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 ½ cup sugar
2 large eggs

¼ cup sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon

Special equipment

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

4. Chill dough until firm. (You can omit this step if your dough isn’t too sticky).
