had this for 40 years, the recipe, not the cookie, and it's just as good as it ever was. if you put cream of tarter in anything it's going to be a hit. roll these in colored sugar instead of white and you've got a wonderful Christmas tea cookie. they melt in your mouth.
Sift dry ingredients together into a bowl. Cut in shortening and butter.
Combine remaining ingredients and add to the dry mixture.
Shape into 1-inch balls and roll in granulated sugar. Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Smash down with bottom of glass dipped in sugar.
Bake at 350* for 10-13 minutes. Do NOT overbake.
