Every once in a while you come across the perfect cookie, the State-Fair-Grand-Prize-Winner cookie, the let’s-make-five-more-dozen cookie. This is that cookie.

Last week my friend, Talia, shared this recipe on her blog so I decided to try it today since I am getting a box of goodies ready to send to Ben. I doubled Talia’s recipe and tweaked it a little to make this batch and they are wonderful. Enjoy!  Makes 5-6 dozen cookies.

Butterfinger Cookies

1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 TBS. vanilla extract
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
10 Butterfinger candy bars (2.1 oz each), coarsely chopped

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs. beat well. Blend in peanut butter and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in candy bars. Shape into 1 1/2 inch balls; place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. (I baked mine for 6 1/2 minutes and then switched them on their racks in the oven.) These would make awesome ice cream sandwiches with butter pecan ice cream!

    Ben is in Nashville doing an internship at Blackbird Studios and beginning his own recording business. He is getting married in June, too. In the meantime, gotta keep him in granola, cookies, and Farmington Kitchen Cooked Potato Chips!
