Chewy Butterfinger Cookies

I'm a sucker for Halloween candy, love the stuff. I especially love it after any holiday when it's 50 -75 % off!

Butterfingers have been a long time favorite. I remember walking to the card shop from school and buying a butterfinger candy bar for 5 cents. Yes, it shows my age.

I had a box of butterfingers and wanted a "few" but really didn't want the whole box. Perfect recipe to get rid of the temptation.

I crushed up the candy in the cusinart, a pulse here, a pulse there and ready to add.

I had to try them before I gave them away. I can't give someone something that isn't tasty,right?

These are good, not overly sweet and chewy as claimed.

1  3/4 cups a/p flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 c (1 stick) butter, softened
1 large egg
8 fun size butterfinger candy bars, chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl and set aside. With an electric mixer, beat sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in egg until just combined.
  3. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in butterfinger pieces by hand. The dough will be very thick. Drop by slightly rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool and enjoy!
