Occasionally Crafty: Saturday Sweets- Butterfinger Cookies

January 15, 2011

Saturday Sweets- Butterfinger Cookies

Oh, I love Butterfingers!  Today, I went to Culver's and had a Butterfinger Concrete Mixer (kind of like a Blizzard for you uninitiated- only with frozen custard- yum!).  Then I made these Butterfinger cookies for church. 

 Butterfinger Ice Cream and Butter Finger Cookie Dough..... how many times do you think I can say Butterfinger?
Anyway, versions of this recipe are all over the internet.  I decided to try the shortening version instead of the peanut butter version.  I found the recipe on Food.com, then followed some of the suggestions on Cookie Madness to personalize it.  So, here is my version of the recipe:

Butterfinger Cookies:
1/3 Cup butter-flavored Crisco shortening
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 Butterfinger candy bars, chopped
1/2 cup butterscotch chips (optional)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Beat shortening and sugar together until smooth and well-combined.  Add in egg and vanilla and mix well.
3.  In a separate bowl, stir together flour, soda, and salt.  Add to shortening mixture and mix until well combined.
4.  Chop Butterfingers with a large knife.  You'll want chunks and shards, so don't be to exact in how you do this.  Add to dough along with butterscotch chips.
5.  The dough will be quite dry.  Form into rounded teaspoonfuls and drop onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake one sheet at a time for 12 minutes.  Let cookies rest on the cookie sheet for about 3 minutes before removing them to cooling racks to cool completely.  Serve when fully cooled.
6.  Makes 2-2 1/2 dozen.


So good......I have a leftover Butterfinger bar.  Maybe I should eat that too and call it a night.
