Servings 36 cookies

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add in extracts and egg.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cream of tartar.
Gradually add dry mixture into wet mixture while mixer is on low. Continue mixing until dough is fully incorporated.
