Beat butter and powdered sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until creamy.  Add egg, vanilla and almond extract and beat well.  Thoroughly blend flour, baking soda and cream of tartar;  gradually add to butter mixture until well combined.

Roll cookie dough into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheets.  Gently press down with a glass that has been dipped in sugar.  Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until just browning around the edges.  Cool on wire racks.
