My mom came to visit one summer, and we decided to bake cookies. Since I had just moved into my new home, I could not find any baking powder. My mom saved the day when she said 'We just have to make our own!'

I did add the “optional cornstarch” and used this for making muffins...it worked. Cream of tartar is expensive, so at least for me, this won’t be a substitute for buying a can of baking powder, but if you’ve run out and don’t want to make a trip to the store, just mix up a small batch of this recipe.

I use this recipe a lot. Maybe it is just me but I do not like the flavor that baking powder adds in any recipe. I don't mind the extra expense, it's not that much more, since where we are located has a co-op that sells herbs, spices and other organic cooking supplies in bulk at a much lower cost than most of the big box stores. (And in the quantity that you really need)

Worked like a charm when I realized I was out! Thanks for saving the day.
