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!!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. I don't even like sweets but these sound like crack to me! Butterfinger cookies? I can only imagine what Homer Simpson would say! Awesome!
