Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cream of tartar, salt and nutmeg; stir into the creamed mixture until well blended. Divide dough and shape into rolls 2 inches in diameter. Wrap in aluminum foil and store in refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to one week.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Slice the logs into rounds about 1/4-inch thick. Arrange the slices on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake the cookies until the edges are light brown, about 8 minutes.

These have such a marvelous flavor. They look very plain, but so what? Be sure to take them out of the oven before they are overdone, or else they will get hard when they cool.

I think that these were not really my families taste more than anything, but we found the texture to be too chewy (not really crisp and not really soft). I liked the taste of the nutmeg and thought they complemented a cup of coffee nicely, the rest of the family didn't think they had enough flavor.

I don't like to give unfavourable reviews, but this recipe just didn't have enough flavour for me. I made the 1/2 tsp. of nutmeg a very rounded one, but the cookies still just weren't spicy enough for me. I won't be making these again.
