  2. Hi, just about to try this recipe and was wondering if they need to be stored in the fridge or will be right in a airtight container on the bench?

  4. Hey! How did you get these into the cookie shape? mine now looks like brown paint spilled all over the cookie sheet. Extremely runny consistency. What did I do wrong?

  6. Can I use regular yogurt instead of Greek yogurt?
    And is there anything I can use instead of cream of tartar? I just can’t find it anywhere

    • I personally would recommend using greek yogurt because it’s healthier, creamier, and has a thicker consistency. However, you can try using regular vanilla yogurt and see if it works for you. I haven’t tried it myself.

    • I don’t know of any substitutions for cream of tartar nor have I ever used any substitutions. You may be able to find some if you did some research. Personally, I would recommend making the investment for cream of tartar. It is a must when you need to whip your egg whites to a thick and fluffy consistency to form peaks. It use it in many of my recipes. Good luck!

    • You can find cream of tartar in the bakery aisle of your groceries store (likely in the spices area)
