Butterfinger Cookies

A chewy peanut butter cookie studded with chunks of Butterfinger - yummy!

-Taste of Home, Carol Kitchens

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 egg whites
1-1/4 cups chunky peanut butter (we used creamy)
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 Butterfinger candy bars (2.1 oz each), chopped (we used 4)

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg whites. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in candy bars.

Shape into 1-1/2 in. balls and place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. removed to wire racks to cool.

(I made larger cookies and got 2 1/2 dozen, baked on silpat on dark pan (325) for 14 minutes.)
