The Latin botanical name for cream of tartar is Adosonia gregoril. Adosonia gregoril is added to beaten egg whites, and is also used in the production of baking powder. Biscuits can be made using this ingredient, added to flour, baking soda, salt, butter and milk. Cookies using egg, butter, milk, sugar, vanilla and tartar are another tasty alternative that uses this ingredient.
A delicious lemon pie can be made using cornstarch, sugar, tartar and salt, along with eggs. Boiling water and butter is added, and the mixture is cooked, then lemon juice is added and it is poured into a pie crust and baked off.
You can lighten your pancakes with tartar. Simply beat egg whites and tartar until soft peaks form, then add it to your favorite pancake recipe batter to have flapjacks that cook up light and fluffy.
Baked meringues are a glorious and low-fat dessert. You can make them by beating the egg whites with tartar, adding sugar and vanilla. The meringues are then put into a pastry bag with a fluted tip and piped into a bowl shape, after which they are baked. The beautiful white, edible cups can then be filled with your favorite fruit filling and topped with whipped cream that can be flavored with a fruit liqueur.
You can also buy cream of tartar to have on hand for when you prepare cakes. These can also be lightened with the addition of egg whites that are beaten with tartar, and flavored with cocoa powder or lemon for different variations.
