Butterfinger Snickerdoodle Cookies

The best of both worlds where snickerdoodle cookies and butterfinger candy collide!

Stack-of-Snickerdoodle-cookies

Snickerdoodle cookies are great for making on a whim because they’re made with basic pantry ingredients that are generally on-hand.  Except for one ingredient, the cream of tartar.

The one and only reason I have cream of tartar in my cupboard is so that I can make snickerdoodles.  In this recipe, Butterfinger bits are added to the mix. 

When making these yummies, I always buy twice the amount of Butterfinger bits needed for the recipe because I need “back-up”.

Back-up for when I’m craving something sweet and remember that Butterfinger bits are in the pantry, back-up for when I grab a spoon and open the bag of Butterfinger bits saying to myself that I’ll just have a spoonful.

And back-up for when all of the Butterfinger bits are gone before making the cookies.

Well needless to say these cookies are insanely tasty, especially when they come out of the oven while they’re soft….

….and chewy.

So, let’s check out the ingredients.

Butterfinger-Snickerdoodles

Butter, sugar, egg, flour, cream of tarter, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and Butterfinger baking bits (extra for back-up)

Here’s how to make it.

For the Cookie Dough:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

mix the Butterfinger bits into the dough.  Set aside for a moment.

For Forming and Coating the Cookie Dough Balls:

In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon.

Roll the dough into balls about the size of a whole walnut.

TIP – It’s helpful to roll all of the cookie dough balls at once (and set them on a large plate) before coating each of them with the sugar mixture.  Otherwise, your hands will have sugar on them which will stick to the dough balls when rolling them.

Coat each dough ball with sugar and cinnamon, and set them on an ungreased cookie sheet about 3-1/2 inches apart from one another.

18-snickerdoodle-cookie-on-pan

Bake in a preheated oven until just after the cookie starts to flatten out (about 15 minutes per batch).  Remove from the oven and let the cookies sit on the cookie sheet for about 3 to 4 minutes.
