I hope everyone had an enjoyable labor day weekend!
The recipe is pretty simple and the ingredients needed are:
1 1/4cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 stick unsalted butter
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. butterfinger bars, chopped (roughly 3 regular sized bars)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350*F.
Next, in a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. (*Note-My cookies turned out a little salty because of the salt that is also in the candy bars so you could probably cut back on the salt to just a little pinch to nothing at all)
Mix the butter and sugar in another bowl. When they are combined add the egg and vanilla and mix well.
Slowly, stir in the dry ingredients. When that is finished, crush the candy into small pieces and begin stirring in the candy pieces. (You can chill the dough for a half hour or so if you want, I didn't and the cookies turned out fine.)
Form teaspoon sized dough balls and put out on cookie sheets. (The recipe I used says to put them on greased cookie sheets, I forgot to grease mine and the cookies still came off in one piece. )
Put the cookies in the oven for 8 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. And VOILA-candy cookies!
I had to leave a note at my house to make sure that they were not all eaten up while I was away-miraculously the note worked, there are still 2 whole cookies left a little over 24 hours later! It was a happy surprise to come home from the first day of school and be able to eat a little treat that I had been looking forward to the entire day. They also provided a slight delight last night as I was doing homework that a teacher had assigned to be turned in the first day of school and feeling like a bitter little bird while doing it. The pleasure of food is an amazing comfort.
Now that it is back to reality and eat/sleep/breathing speech, language, hearing sciences-I will be updating probably every 1 1/2 to 2 weeks as fits my schedule.
