Ingredients
                
1/2 c
softened butter

1/2 c
granulated sugar

1/3 c
brown sugar

1 ea
egg

1/2 t
vanilla

1 1/2 c
flour

1/4 t
salt

1/2 t
baking soda

1/4 t
cream of tartar


Directions
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars with an electric mixer on high speed.
Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar.
Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix  well.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees while you let the dough rest for 30-60 minutes in the refrigerator.
Prepare the Cinnamon Sugar recipe for the topping.
Take about 2 1/2 Tbl of the dough and roll it into a ball.
Roll dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and press onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Repeat for the remaining cookies.
Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes and no more.
The cookies  may seem undercooked, but will continue to develop after they are removed from
the oven.
When the cookies have cooled they should be soft and chewy in the middle.
