Chewy Butterfingers Cookies
adapted from sallysbakingaddiction.com
makes approx. 2 1/2 dozen cookies
1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg*
8 fun sized Butterfingers candy bars, chopped (while still in the wrapper I just hit mine a couple of times with my meat mallet, then just open the wrapper and dump in the cookie batter)
1/2 (or slightly more) cup milk chocolate chips (or a mix of milk chocolate and peanut butter chips)
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl and set aside. With an electric mixer, beat sugars and butter until creamy. Beat in vanilla extract and egg until just combined.
Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in Butterfingers pieces and chocolate chips by hand. The dough will be very thick. Drop by slightly rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet (I lined mine with Parchment paper).
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool and enjoy!
*if dough seems too dry, mix in 1 extra egg.
