2 1/4 c flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
3/4 c unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 c brown sugar
2 t vanilla
3/4 c toffee bits
10 oz semisweet chocolate
1 1/4 t shortening
1. Heat oven to 375 F.
2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized bowl, set aside. Beat together butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in flour mixture until combined. Stir in toffee bits.
3. Roll 2 t dough into a ball and place on ungreased cookie sheet. With flat bottomed glass with bottom dipped in flour, press dough to form a 2" circle. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing cookies 1" apart.
4. Bake in 375 oven 7-10 minutes or until golden and set. Let cool on baking sheet 1 min, then transfer to rack to cool.
5. Melt chocolate and shortening in small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Sandwich together 2 flat sides of cookies, using about 2 t chocolate each. Drizzle outsides if desired. Store airtight at room temperature for 1 week.
