My daughter and I both love Snickerdoodles but we've never found any store bought brands that quite did the trick for us. I started searching around for recipes and after experimenting here and there, came up with a winner for us. I think it should make at least four dozen if you can keep from picking on the cookie dough.
11) Sift together flour, cream of tarter, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Set aside.
Take unwrapped Butterfingers, put into a plastic bag and break up (with a tenderizing mallet or whatever you have that does the job) into crumbs
22) In a mixing bowl cream shortening
3 Add sugar, eggs, crushed Butterfinger minis then dry ingredients and mix well
(It’s going to form a dough – you may have to knead by hand)
33) Shape into balls the size of walnuts.
5 Pour cinnamon in a small bowl.
6 Roll each ball in the cinnamon.
7 Place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
48 Bake at 350º for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
9 Remove cookies from cookie sheet and place on wire rack to cool.
