What can I use if I don't have cream of tartar? I'm trying to make sugar cookies. Thank you.

You might check the substitutions on this page. http://whatscoo  /CreamTartar.htm
The texture of the cookie may be slightly different though. Cookies made with cream of tartar seem to have a slight sandy, melt in your mouth type texture to me. But there are many sugar recipes out there that do not use crm of tartar so it isn't a requirement for a good sugar cookie.
