I love making cookies because they keep better than other types of desserts, so that I don't feel pressured to eat them all or try and give them away to people before they go bad. These cookies would not have survived until they went bad anyways. They are incredibly addictive!
My 7 year old has a bit of a sweet tooth...okay, a HUGE sweet tooth, like me. So I have to hide sweets before I go to bed unless I want them to mystically disappear in the middle of the night. Nick ended up hiding the last 3 cookies from Matthew before bed and he forgot about them. A few days passed and no one remembered them...except for me.
And I ate all 3. Nick was devastated to say the very least when he went searching a few days later for the cookies he saved for him and the kids. I, on the other hand, have no regrets and no guilt. You can't have just one of these cookies!
What you need:
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 3/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 8 fun-size Butterfinger bars, roughly chopped
- Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
- In a separate bowl or in your stand mixer, cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs and mix until just combined.
- Add flour and mix just until combined.
- Add candy - I used the stir function on my mixer. I liked that it made the candy a little smaller.
- Scoop dough onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
- Bake at 375* for 10 to 12 minutes. Don't overbake!
- Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire rack.
