I found the exact same recipe in a recipe book from Indiana...the only difference is that it used shortening instead of butter, chilled the dough and baked the cookies at 350 degrees instead of 375. I think those changes make a difference on the texture of the cookies.

I baked these cookies for a party, and I was disapointed when the first guest took one and pratically broke a tooth bighting into it (and I made them that day too!). But after I put them in a container w/ bread (which softens them up), they taste pretty good. I think they could have a stronger butterfinger taste, though.

Really crispy, I prefer soft cookies better. They got eaten up at the family gathering, but I probably won't make them again.

This recipe was very dry but good.

This recipe was easy and quick. Personally I thought the taste was way to sweet for me. The recipe would work for my daughter's "Easy Bake". Not very good for me but my kids liked them.

I had some problems with these. Too thin and flat and they were overbaked at 8 minutes. Took another reviewers advice and chilled the rest of the dough and baked them for 9 minutes at 350 with better results.Too much trouble to make them again. Thanks for sharing.

This is a nice recipe! It's very sweet and crunchy. They turned out a tad flatter than I would like, but they tasted great. I will definitely make these again.
