Butterfinger Cookies


I have been so focused on making new things for dinner that I have been totally neglecting Chicken Leg's sweet tooth.  I was looking through some old recipes and found these cookies.  I remembered that they were fantastic, so I decided to make them last weekend.  My memory was correct - these are great cookies!  It doesn't hurt that I LOVE peanut butter and Butterfingers.  Chicken Leg's loved the cookies too.  I made some amazing ice cream to go with the cookies - I'll share that recipe with you tomorrow.  I am really looking forward to dessert tonight - we still have some leftovers!!

(Printable Recipe)


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 1/4 cups chunky peanut butter (or smooth)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 (2.1 ounce) butterfinger candy bars, chopped


Preheat oven to 350.

In a mixing bowl, 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 a baking sheet. (I use a medium cookie scoop)

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies just start to turn brown. Do not over bake! Let sit on cookie sheet for a few minutes, before transfering to a wire rack. Cool completely.

  9. I made these cookies tonight for a party at work tomorrow and they are amazing! Cruncy and chewy and delicious. They're sweet but not too sweet. I can see where they'd be good with ice cream. Unfortunately I don't think there's going to be any left after the folks at work taste them for the ice cream experiment. I'm already going to have to hide them from the Monkey tonight so the actually get to work.

  10. These sound great. I just made a chocolate peanut butter cake this past week that I posted on my blog. If you love butterfingers you might want to try this recipe I believe it's dated august 3rd on my blog. The cake is one giant butterfingers.

    I can't wait to try your cookies. Thanks for sharing them.

  13. Steph, I made these for a food blogger get together last weekend and they are ridiculously good. I think I shoved as much cookie dough in my mouth as I got on the sheet pans.

  14. Steph--I made these yesterday and shared them at a family get-together. They are one of my very favorite cookies now. I LOVE them. I'll be posting a blog (with a link to you) about them later tonight.
    SO good! Thanks for sharing.

  15. Katie-Bar-The-Door and I have made these cookies several times and they are addictive. Just spectacular.

    By the way, do not accidentally substitute low-fat peanut butter for regular. They sit next to each other the shelf and Katie picked up the wrong jar by mistake. Low-fat p.b. has more sugar and less fat, so the chemical reaction in the oven is entirely different. They didn't make cookies, they made a thin, rubbery peanut brittle concoction. Still, the in-laws were present and they got eaten in a single evening.

    The cookies, that is, not the in-laws ...
