I cannot even begin to express the absolute deliciousness in your mouth when you take a bite of one of these. Also, it was the easiest homemade cookie to make, ever. Brad isn't even a butterfinger fan, but he LOVES them in these cookies. They were a hit today at the reunion.
To me, this is the PERFECT cookie. It's the right shape, size, texture, everything. They're pretty much AMAZING.
Original recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction
Makes 2 dozen cookies
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 large egg
8 fun-sized butterfinger candy bars, chopped
1.) Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2.) Combine flour, salt & baking soda in a small bowl & set aside. With an electric mixer, beat sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in egg until just combined.
3.) Gradually stir in flour mixture. The dough will be very thick! Chop butterfingers. (I asked Brad, "how am i supposed to chop these?!" I was unsure if i should put them in a processor or what...He said, "I supposed just like you would chop a carrot." Oh, wow. Sometimes i make things so much more complicated than they need to be!)
4.) Stir in butterfingers. I just used my hands. There was no other way...the dough was VERY thick.
5.) Drop by small round spoonfuls on an ungreased baking sheet.
6.) Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. (Took exactly 10 for me!) Allow to cool and enjoy!
I thought putting the extras on the serving dish was a good idea... (1) i get rid of them all so i'm not tempted to eat them & (2) people should know what kind of cookie it is! :)
I repeat, y'all: SO.GOOD.
