Butterfinger Cookies are a fun snack for those times when you are looking for a little change from your chocolate chip cookies. We were having friends over for dinner and I wanted a yummy cookie after we ate.
So I quickly put together a batch of Butterfinger cookies and they were very good. They came out of the oven so nice and chewy, packed with flavor and just an amazing taste of peanut butter mixed with butterfingers. One word sums it all up – YUM!
Butterfinger Cookies are a fun way to say hello to a new neighbor, or to take to work. I know as soon as I take these to work tomorrow, they are going to be gone. I don’t know what it is about working, but it sure does make you hungry and feel like you need a snack.
Why do I need to Roll the Dough into Balls when Making Butterfinger Cookies?
In the picture below, I did not roll the dough into nice little balls and the ones on the right, I did. You can see that the cookies on the left do not look as nice as the ones on the right. If you want your cookies to look nice, then I suggest that you go ahead and put in the extra effort of rolling them.
What does it mean to Fold Something into a Recipe?
This Butterfinger cookie recipe tells you to fold in the candy bar pieces and the butterscotch chips; that usually means to use a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon to very gently, but deliberately, mix in whatever you are adding. This is why you might find that cookie recipes suggest you fold in chocolate chips, nuts or other add-ins at the end of the mixing process; so that you do not over mix the batter.
One other thing when I used that bakers mat, it did take about another 1 1/2 minutes to bake in the oven.
