Butterfinger Cookies

these should be called Best Ever Butterfinger Cookies. So far excellent raves when I baked them for family and friends.

What a great memory from my childhood in the 50 and 60's. I loved both the Butterfinger and Baby Ruth cookies that you could purchase at th grocery store. Now I can make my own.

Everybody Loves Them

These cookies are easy to make and absolutely everybody loves them. I've made them twice now and I and everybody who eats them, likes them just the way they are. No emmbellishments are needed. You have to try them.

Need a Boost

These were good but needed a boost. I used 16 fun size bars and chilled the dough overnite. I baked them for only 10 minutes. To keep them chewy I put them in a sealed container with bread. I have made them twice and I love the idea of using Butterfinger Candy--Who doesn't love a Butterfinger, right? Great recipe--thanks for sharing this one!
