Preparation Cookies:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a pan with parchment paper or non-stick foil
    In a large bowl, combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and sugar (plus honey if selected), then mix on low
  2. Add butter, honey (if used), eggs, and either lemon juice or lemon liqueur, then mix on high until even consistency reached
  3. Roll dough into small balls and squish just a little with your palm before placing on your pan. For a large baking sheet pan, you should be able to fit 12 cookies
  4. Bake for 7-8 minutes, until you start to see a bit of brown around the bottom edges, then sit aside for 10-15 minutes to cool and harden up a bit.
