In small bowl, blend the sour cream and baking soda, set aside. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt. Cut in the butter. Stir in sour cream mixture and egg until the flour mixture is just moistened. Mix in 1/2 cup of fruit, nut, or chocolate chip of choice.
