Directions

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars at high speed. Add egg, vanilla, and beat until smooth. In another bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar.

Pour dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix well. Preheat oven to 300° while you let dough rest 30-60 minutes in fridge. In a small bowl combine topping. Take about 2 1/2 tablespoons of dough and roll it into a ball.

Roll this dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and press onto greased cookie sheet. Bake cookies 10 – 12 minutes. Let cool completely.

While cookies are cooling, melt chocolate according to package directions. Dip cookies halfway into chocolate and place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle immediately with toffee bits.
