I have a similar recipe for snickerdoodles, and I just find whenever there's C of T it changes the flavour in a way I don't like - maybe it's just me though - they are a hit with my family!!!
That's about 4 times as much cream of tartar as I would expect; could it be a typo, having dropped the 1/? 1/2 t should be plenty for snickerdoodles.
