"LOVE these cookies. Remember to CREAM the butter and sugar until fluffy, beat it for at least a minute or two. It puts air pockets into the dough and makes it fluffy without baking soda or powder!"

"The baking powder or soda may have been omitted for a reason, but I agree that it needs one or the other and for that much flour I would add 1 teaspoon baking powder. The recipe is a good master cookie recipe."

"I made the pinwheels and they did not turn out like the picture. They did not rise or get bigger. Where is the baking soda or baking powder in this recipe?"
