Butterfinger Cookies

DSC_0014

This summer our community group (family Bible study group) made cookies for our local fire departments as a small token of our appreciation for their service to our community. My friend Val made some really yummy Butterfinger cookies that my husband loved.  So I ended up making a couple of batches of these cookies just for him.  I made them again today and thought I would share with you!

Ingredients: (makes around 4 dozen good sized cookies)

3 and 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1.5 cups sugar

2 sticks of butter (1 cup), softened

2 large eggs

16-20 fun sized Butterfinger candy bars, chopped

Directions:

  1. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar in your mixing bowl for about five minutes until it is light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg.
  4. Slowly add in the flour mixture.
  5. Fold Butterfinger pieces in by hand.
  6. Drop dough by spoonful onto cookie sheet.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Watch closely as they brown quickly after that 10 minute mark.
