Butterfinger Cookies

December 23, 2013Teresa

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2013

Oh, my, Butterfinger Cookies. How do I describe this amazing cookie as anything other than heavenly??!! I LOVED these tasty cookies. As you can see, we made them for this year’s Christmas Cookie Extravaganza. So all our grateful recipients will get a chance to enjoy these wonderful cookies, too. This lovely brown sugar and crunchy peanut butter cookie is filled with lots of chopped Butterfinger bars. It gives these cookies an incredible chocolate and peanut butter combination that’s quite addictive.

I found this recipe in a Taste of Home Ultimate Cookie Collection cookbook a few years ago. Finally I’ve gotten around to making it. I made several adjustments to the recipe and felt like it turned out fantastic. This cookie has great texture–crunch on the outside, chewy on the inside. It has lots of peanut butter and chocolate flavor. It also has a little more crunch on the inside from the chopped Butterfinger bars. It’s one of those yummy cookies to die for!

This is a sensational cookie for holiday baking. But it’s also terrific any time of the year for potlucks, tailgating parties, the Super Bowl or Valentine’s Day. You should definitely give Butterfinger Cookies a try if you enjoy chocolate or peanut butter desserts. You’ll be hard pressed to eat only one. And, you’ll be lucky if your family shares any with you! 🙂

Don’t Butterfinger Cookies look scrumptious? These cookies have really great texture. They puff up nicely while baking and don’t flatten out too much.

Here’s what I did.

In a large mixing bowl add softened butter, eggs, brown sugar and granulated sugar. I made six batches of this recipe so don’t be overwhelmed by how much is in the bowl.

    Help. My cookies did not turn out like yours. They stayed in a hard ball and .did not spread but the taste was very good. Would like to make them again.

      I’m so sorry Betty, yours didn’t turn out right. I didn’t have any problem with mine. I recommend two things: Flatten the cookies slightly with your hands before baking, and #2, Decrease the flour by about 1/4 cup. I hope they turn out better the next time.
