Thanks!

I think she accidentally put in cornstarch instead of cream of tartar and then put in corn syrup on purpose at the end of mixing to give it some shine!
Cake's a powerful food. Cake can actually bring people together. You know... "It's Bill's birthday" "Yeah, I hate that guy." "There's cake in the conference room." "Well, I should say hello."-Jim Gaffigan

I'm here, I'm here icon_lol.gif
I've been doing so many cakes and cookies lately that I haven't been able to get on here as much lately. Don't even have time to make myself a birthday cake!!
I substituted the same amount of corn starch for cream of tartar as called for in the recipe.
Then I added the corn syrup at the end to make the cookies shiny. I'm working on some now so I'll post a pic when done.
