I tried replacing 2/4 cup of the flour and 1/2 cup of the sugar with 3/4 cup powdered sugar..it made them delicate to handle but they melt in your mouth...my family couldn't stop eating them!

I made these cookies and took them to work. I got all kinds of compliments. The cooks at work all asked for the recipe. Also, I used cornstarch instead of cream of tartar and it worked out fine.

I've been baking for over 50 years and these are some of the finest cookies ever. They've never been served at my house (or at anyone's party) without my having to right down the recipe over and over. The saddest thing is that there are never any left and I mean NEVER. They are so tender with the perfect touch of tartness in the glaze/frosting. I use a bit more freshly squeezed juice in the frosting. Thanks for this recipe. I see that someone has stolen it from my files and I've come to Land O' Lakes today to reclaim the recipe.
