Butterfinger Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by lonestrchic

This is one of my favorite cookies that my mom makes. I like to ad a bit of chopped nuts and extra butterfinger candy bars sometimes (about 3/4 more of a cup). :) Not sure where she got it from, but it's been in her recipe box for about 6 years.

I printed a copy of this on 9/16/08 to put into a folder of cookies to bake this year. Something didn't look right when I was making the dough this morning. I came back to the site to if others had any input - none at this time. Then I looked at the recipe and it had been updated. I hopefully have been able to salvage what I had. Recipe submitters - please ensure your ingredients are accurate the upon submission. Times are tight right now and many of us cannot afford to have to throw something out.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. PREHEAT oven to 375°F.
  2. COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat sugar and butter in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg & vanilla; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in Butterfinger pieces. Drop by slightly rounded tablespoon onto lightly greased baking sheets (I use a tiny amount of Pam cooking spray).
  3. BAKE for 9 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. For more chewy cookies bake for about 9 minutes- once cooled store in container with half a slice of white bread and they should stay moist and chewy. For crisper cookies, bake closer to the 12 minute marker and let cool.
  4. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
