Mix together ½ cup finely ground raw sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon in a small bowl, set aside.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cream of tartar, and corn starch.  In a separate bowl cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in the extract and milk and combine well.  Add the dry ingredients in 2 batches.  Take a tablespoon at a time of the cookie dough and roll into a ball.  Roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture and slightly flatten the ball into a disc.  Place on a baking sheet.  Bake for 8-11 minutes, or until golden brown.  Let cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.  Let the cookies cool completely before placing into storage containers.
