What to do with a Butterfinger......

I saw this recipe and knew I had to try it. As a kid, I loved Butterfingers, except they always managed to stick to my molars. I was always using my tongue to get out that praline goodness an hour later. They are one of those candy bars that last a while. Be sure not to let these gems over bake or they will be crispy. Ten minutes is just enough time. And to chop your candy bars, just place in a ziploc bag and go over with a rolling pin. You should have everything on hand, just need to run down to the corner store and load up on the bars. I picked up mine in a 6 pack at Walmart. BUTTERFINGER COOKIES INGREDIENTS

1/2 c. butter, softened

3/4 c. sugar

2/3 c. brown sugar

2 egg whites

1 1/4 c. chunky peanut butter

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 c. flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

5 Butterfinger candy bars (2.1 ounces each), chopped




DIRECTIONS **Cream butter and sugars. Add egg whites; 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 and place on greased baking sheets. I use parchment paper instead and highly recommend it over greasing the pan. The cookies come off the paper without any problem and you don't have to wash crusted on cookie bits from the baking sheets.

**Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
