Butterfinger Cookies...


One thing my Mom made sure she passed onto her girls, was an ability and love of cooking. As a young girl she wasn't allowed in the kitchen and when she got married, she basically knew how to boil water and that's it. Fast forward 50+ years and my Mom is an ahhhhhmazing, self-taught cook. Yes, there have been a few disasters according to my Dad {tomato aspic???} but all in all she's so good at what she does. And she passed on that love and desire to cook to my sister and I. I'll admit, being single it's not always been easy to find the desire to cook every night. But eating out gets expensive and tough on the waistline:/

My sister made these cookies a few months ago for me and good golly they are great! I mean, what's not to like? Candy and cookies mixed together. Sign me up!! So on this hump day I'm sharing her recipe for Butterfinger cookies and I hope you enjoy!

Butterfinger Cookies Recipe:

  • 1 3/4 cup Flour

  • 3/4 tsp Baking soda

  • 1/4 tsp Salt

  • 3/4 cup Sugar

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

  • 1 Large egg

  • 1 cup Butterfinger candy - coarsely chopped

Pre-heat oven to 375*. Combine four, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Set aside. Beat sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in egg. Then gradually beat in flour mixture. Fold in chopped candy pieces. Drop by rounded tablespoons (I like to use an icecream scoop) onto cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

{We like to take them out early, around 8-9 minutes and let them harden on the cookie sheet. This creates a crunchy outer cookie with a soft center. Yummmy!!!}
