I was just getting ready to post the same thing Sister said. Lemon should be fine in your cookies, though you may need to compensate with a little more sugar & flour.
A white, powdered substance, also referred to as potassium salt, that is the residue (by-product) from the tartaric acid remaining in wine casks after the fermented grapes have been removed. Cream of tartar is a key ingredient added to baking soda in order to produce baking powder. It is also often added to egg whites to stabilize the whites as they are beaten and then folded into cake batters and for use in preparing meringues. Similarly, cream of tartar is useful in the preparation of sugar syrups to prevent them from crystallizing.
