  • egg whites, or 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 2 teaspoons

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a cookie sheet with canola cooking spray, or line with a sheet of parchment paper.
  2. Cream together butter, corn syrup, cream cheese, and 1 1/4 cups sugar with a mixer on medium speed. Add the egg, egg whites or egg substitute, and vanilla, and beat until blended.
  3. Add the flour, cream of tartar, soda, and salt to mixing bowl. Beat on low speed to form a dough. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm enough to handle.
