The cookies I made turned out light & fluffy, but in general I was not at all impressed by this recipe. I went ahead and doubled it as some others had recommended in their reviews, but this turned out to be far too many cookies (approximately 6 dozen or so with standard-size cookie cutters) for our small family of four. It was an overwhelming project for myself and my older son to decorate them all. Not only that, but although I went easy on the cream of tartar (also as recommended), that flavor was still so strong that it was really all we could taste. My son even pointed out that they oddly almost tasted like cornbread ... that's how messed up the flavor was. I wouldn't recommend this particular sugar cookie recipe to anyone, nor any other that calls for cream of tartar.
