White Crackle Cookies Recipe

This is a recipe my mom used to make, and I remembered the tangy taste of the cream of tartar - a pleasant little bite to the cookie. Since I made these over the weekend, I thought I'd share the recipe here.

White Crackle Cookies, Recipe:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Beat together the following ingredients:
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. shortening
1 egg
1/2 t. salt.

Mix together the following ingredients, then mix into the above ingredients:
2 c. flour
1 t. cream of tartar
1 t. baking soda 

Now stir in
1 t. vanilla. 

Mix well, Roll into 3/4" balls.
Dip tops in cold water, then in white sugar.

Bake on greased jelly roll pan or cookie sheet for 8-12 minutes
(It all depends upon the size of the cookie ball and the pan you're using. I used heavy jellyroll pans and the cookies needed almost 12 minutes.) They should be a very pale golden. Remove from oven and let them finish cooling on the cookie sheet before removing.

I got 2 1/2 dozen cookies out of this batch.

Next time I wouldn't dip them in the sugar before baking, but that's simply a matter of taste.

Note: Since I was making these cookies for someone else, I did not make them gluten free.

 'Search me, O God, and know my heart.
Test me and know my thoughts.
See if there is any wicked way in me
And lead me in the way everlasting.'
-Psalm 139:23-24

'Create in me a clean heart, O God
And put a new and right spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from your presence
And do not take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the Joy of your salvation,
And sustain in me a willing spirit.'
- Psalm 51:10-13

Great verses to ponder, memorize, sing, and pray.

The same Psalms sung by Jesus, of course.

How Great is Our God!

Have a blessed Lord's Day, friends.
