At Christmas, Tom picked up a bag of Nestle Butterfinger Baking Bits (10 ounces) and I've been waiting to make a batch of cookies with them. Though there's a great recipe on the bag, I won't repeat it here because it's almost certainly copyrighted. I checked the Nestle website for the recipe and was surprised it wasn't there.
Here, though, is something close.
I like using the bits more than breaking up the Butterfinger Bites. Could it be that the bits aren't available year-round but the candy is?
I used a portion scoop (#24) and placed the dough on a Silverstone cookie sheet.
This size portion (just about a tablespoon) actual does make four dozen cookies.
The dough is quite dry and therefore easy to work with. Not at all sticky.
Another batch coming out of the oven ...
As I neared the end of the dough, I began making the cookies a little larger. What's wrong with that?
This is really a delicious cookie ... butter-scotchy, peanut-buttery. Now, time to make some coffee and have another.
