2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons sugar

Place cookies 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 10 minutes. The cookies are done when they have flattened and have a cracked appearance. Makes approximately 4 dozen cookies.
