In a mixing bowl, combine sugar and margarine until smooth. Add, egg, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract; set aside. In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Add to wet ingredients and mix until all is moistened. Chill dough two hours, or until firm. Preheat oven to 350. Shape dough into 36 one inch balls. Place onto prepared baking sheets.
