Serves Makes 6 dozen | Prep Time About 15 minutes | Cook Time 8-10 minutes

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups flour (I use pastry flour for a delicate taste)
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 /4 tsp salt
1 cup butter
1 cup chunky peanut butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 to 3 Butterfinger candy bars


Preheat the oven to 375 F


In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.


In a mixer bowl, cream the butter or margarine, peanut butter, brown sugar, and 1 cup granulated sugar until light and fluffy.


Beat in the eggs and vanilla


Beat in the Butterfinger candy bars


Gradually beat in the dry ingredients just until combined


Shape tablespoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls


Roll in the remaining 1/2 cup of granulated sugar


Place 3 inches apart onto 2 ungreased cookie sheets


With sugar coated tines of a fork, press and flatten each ball


Make a criss-cross pattern


Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden


Cool on cookie sheets for 3 minutes


Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Notes

This is a very old recipe that I have added and deleted ingredients to suit my taste and my families. These cookies are "to die for". They are that good.
