Crumbly & Delicious Butterfinger Cookies -- Mmm!

butterfinger cookiesFolks, I have a very important question for you. When is the last time you sat down and ate a cookie? How about a candy bar? If it has been any longer than, oh, I don't know, a week, have I got the fix for you! Butterfinger cookies, my friends, are the best of both world.

They bring you all the down home comfort of a fresh-out-of-the oven cookie just like you used to eat as a kid with the sweet candy treat that, come to think of it, you used to eat as a kid! The butterfinger and cookie combo kind of makes this dessert a trip down memory lane, doesn't it? You know you want some! Here's the recipe:
