I prefer the taste of all butter to butter shortening combo and the texture and slight flavor difference of cream of tarter to the baking soda. I always add vanilla for the extra layer of richness and flavor but there weren't any by the end of the evening so as written, this is still a great cookie recipe. Now if they were called Emerill's yummy "

Made it with home made tartlette shells but very time consuming so made it memorial day with phyllo cups. big hit. Had to get up at the crack of dawn to make them before leaving for the parade so love the idea of the mini marshmallow barrier. Love the idea of the mini vanilla cupcake too Will do that for the 4th."
