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


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.

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.
