Super Yummy Butterfinger Cookies!


Here is a super yummy recipe for a cookie that everyone will love. It’s called Butterfinger Cookies and you will end up with butter fingers – the cookies will slip right out of your fingers and in to your mouth!

The cookies are great for kids to make because they are relatively easy. The kids also love to be part of the prep process and can smash the candy bar pieces while you are mixing up the rest of the ingredients. Who wouldn’t like to take a heavy kitchen utensil and beat something with it on occasion?

Ingredients:

1 stick butter – softened

1 c flour

3/4 c sugar

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2 egg whites

5 2 oz Butterfinger candy bars, crushed

1 1/4 c crunchy peanut butter

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease any cookie sheets you will be using to bake the cookies on.

Cream together the butter and sugars until the mixture is fluffy. Gradually add in the egg whites and beat well. Add in the peanut butter and the vanilla and beat until creamy and fluffy. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, soda and salt. Slowly pour in to the creamy mixture. Turn off the mixer and then by hand, add the candy bar pieces. (Smashing the candy bars works best if you remove the wrappers and then place in a plastic, sealed bag. Place that bag within a second bag. Smash the candy bars using a rolling pin, meat tenderizer (side, not points) or heavy spoon. Continue to smash until the pieces are small and bite size).

Once the candy bar pieces are stirred in by hand, drop by teaspoons on to a greased cookie sheet.  Bake the cookies for 9 – 12 minutes, or until a light golden brown. Do not overbake as this will make the candy bar pieces in the cookie too hard to chew. These cookies are best when left a little underdone in the center. One batch will make approximately 3 dozen cookies, that will disappear in a shorter amount of time than it took to bake them if you have kids (any age) in the house.

The cookies can also be made using pieces of chocolate covered toffee candy bars. Smash the pieces the same way and mix by hand in the cookie dough. Watch the cookies closely when baking so they also do not overbake. A chewier cookie tastes better with the candy pieces.

The batch can be doubled but the cookies do not store well in the freezer.
