Butterfinger Cookies

This cookie is in my top 5 all time favorite cookies.  They are perfectly chewy, with yummy bits of Butterfinger throughout.  The dough is very simple and I have yet to meet someone who didn’t love them. Be sure to stock up on candy after all the major holidays. Recipe and photo courtesy of cookiesandcups.com.

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, plus 1 yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups chopped Butterfinger (approx. 10-12 fun sized bars)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Cream together butter and sugar for 2 minutes until light and fluffy.  Add in egg, yolk, and vanilla.  Mix until combined. Beat in baking soda, and salt, then add in flour.  Finally mix in the chopped Butterfinger. Using a cookie scoop, drop tablespoons of dough about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-9 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
