Butterfinger Cookies

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:

Butterfinger Cookies
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!

Those look yummy, and I'm sure they'll taste good like the other recipes I've tried from you!

*How much sugar? :)

Tanya said...

Oops, I forgot the sugar! 3/4 c. I have a bad bad cold today and am not all here! Ugh! Thanks Lindsay :)

Anna said...

These look yummy and easy, just what I like!

I was also wondering about the sugar. LOL!! I've wanted to try Butterfinger with some recipes during a holiday in Chicago. Maintaining good set of teeth requires good efforts, though. Sedation dentistry is perhaps just one of the good ways to deal with dental issues.

Thanks, Tanya!

I'm going to make a batch of these right now. My sons are in a play this weekend and will be having a cast party. I bet the cookies will be gobbled up in no time. Thanks for posting this recipe. I can't wait to try one.
