Butter Finger Cookies

Butter Fingers are one of my favorite candy bars...so why not make a Butter Finger cookie?! These cookies are perfectly sweet and will satisfy that sweet tooth that you get right about the time the kids get home from school. They are chewy and yummy and are one of my favorite comfort foods.

Butter Finger Cookies
1 c. butter flavored Crisco shortening
2 1/4 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 t. vanilla
3 c. flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
3/4 t. salt
3-4 full sized candy bars, chopped
1 1/2 c. butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add dry ingredients, mix slowly until combined. Chop butterfingers with a knife. You want chunks not crumbs. Add along with butterscotch chips and stir just until mixed.
Form into balls or drop by teaspoon (I used a cookie scoop) onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until done.
*Mine made about 4 1/2 dozen cookies...also, some of mine were a little on the flat side...next time I will add just a little more flour (approx. 1/2 c. or less) to make a thicker cookie. Flat or fluffy...they were YUMMY!!!!
