  • To form the cookies, simply roll each individual cookie into a ball and then roll that ball into the first bowl (small bowl with the cinnamon and sugar alternative) to cover the cookie. Then place the rolled cookie on to the prepped cookie sheet and repeat until all of the cookies have been formed. Be sure to leave plenty of room between cookies on the sheet as they will flatten as they bake.

  • Bake your cookies for 10-12 minutes or until they begin to 'crack'. Allow them to cool on the sheet before transferring.

Recipe Notes

For best results, please make sure that your ingredients are fresh. Also, unlike many cookie recipes out there, using cream of tarter is essential for this recipe to be a success for you.
As mentioned above, you will need cream of tarter for this recipe. Also, Shortening is used in addition to the butter that is used in this recipe. An alternative to shortening that can be used is vegetable oil (⅓ cup). You probably will be okay if you were to use margarine as a substitute if you desired to.
You can find vegan butter alternatives here.

To make this low carb, use a low carb all purpose flour.

Also, to make this keto use a keto all purpose flour.
Lastly, to make this recipe gluten free, use an all purpose gluten free flour.
