Knowing I'm a cookie lover, my mother-in-law sent me this recipe years ago. Many folks have told me these are the best cookies they've ever tasted. I think it's the Butterfinger candy bars that make them so special. — Kristen Snyder, Sugar Land, Texas

"These are in my TOH cookie cookbook and have made them a few times. Now with the butterfinger bits available in the baking aisle I use those. These are light and crispy cookies. I like them."

"These cookies baked up fine the first batch and from then on baked up like little mountains. The are way to sweet, and do not have any really outstanding flavor. I'm a pastry chef and would pass these by. So many other yummy cookies out there!"
