almost my favorite cookie

Top Review by Two Socks

These cookies had an awesome flavo, and I loved the chunks of butterfinger candy bars in them, but for some reason, mine came out a bit crumbly and brittle. I was also confused about whether there was supposed to be any brown sugar in the dough since the word 'sugars' appear in the instructions, when only white sugar was called for in the ingredients. I made the recipe exactly as written, and the result was very good. Next time I make these, I'll add even more butterfinger pieces and see if I can solve the brittle texture mystery. Thanks for a great recipe.
