Are these crispy cookies? The cream of tartar and the sugar on the outside leads me to believe that they might be. I am actually trying a friends sugar cookie recipe as I type this. I mixed up the dough earlier and it is chilling in the refrigerator. I like soft, cakey sugar cookies. My friend told me her recipe would fit the bill so we'll see!

No, they aren't crispy, they are soft.  The kind where if a piece falls off, you can press it back on.  The sugar gives a bit of a light crust, but they are very soft.  I shaped most of them into thick ovals and didn't dip them in sugar and frosted them into easter eggs.  The last few I rolled in sugar.  They were both delicious!!
