My second attempt at making cookies was very successful! The cookies came out so soft, light and had a great texture. I did a few things that I thought were important for soft cookies and it seemed to pay off in the end. I made sure that my butter was at room temperature and I creamed the butter and sugar until it was LIGHT & FLUFFY! This took some time since I only have a hand mixer, but it was well worth the effort. I also always sift all of my dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, cream of tartar) before adding them to my wet ingredients. I think it makes such a huge difference when mixing.
