While I didn't have time this week to put together a "Thursday Favorite" from a reader this week, I do have time to share one of my favorite new cookies. Being that they're made with the flavors of peanut butter and chocolate, Butterfingers are one of my favorite candy bars. These cookies have few ingredients, wonderful flavor and take hardly any time from your day to make:
2 king sized Butterfinger candybars (smashed)
3/4 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. margarine or butter (room temp)
1 large egg
1/2 t. vanilla extract
1-1/3 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
With an electric mixer, cream together the butter, egg, vanilla, and sugar until smooth and lumpless. In another bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until you get a crumbly mixture the forms a ball when rolled. Roll into 1" balls.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes, or until slightly golden (you'll want to grease or line your cookie sheet-these stick!). Remove and cool. Enjoy! Kids LOVE these!
