Snickerdoodles contain cream of tartar, an item I never used in anything else. A little digging on the Internet revealed that cream of tartar was first discovered as a by-product of wine making. Crystals of cream of tartar (aka potassium bitartrate) form on the underside of a cork in a wine bottle kept chilled in wine cellars.
Croutons aren’t just for salad. When sprinkled on top of soup their crunchy texture provides a nice contrast. You can easily make croutons that are fresh and nicely flavored with herbs from your garden.
I discovered this recipe while staying with friends of mine who were the parents of five growing, hungry children. These are so good there were never any leftovers.
