Baby Ruth Cookies

After this graduation hoopla is over and life is back to "normal", I need to do some  organizing.  I realized while searching for a recipe last weekend that my notes and recipes are a mess.  I've just been tossing them into the drawer in the wooden file cabinet because I don't want to take the time to file them properly.  I never did find the recipe......and had to look it up with the search box on my blog!!  This blog has saved me on numerous occasions when a favorite recipe card  is missing.  As I was digging through my wooden file though, I was lucky to find a great old candy bar-cookie recipe for us.  Hope you like this one!  Have a good week.

Baby Ruth Cookies

1 1/4 C flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C (1 stick) margarine
3/4 C sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 C chopped Baby Ruth candy bars

Sift together flour, baking soda and salt;  set aside.  Cream together margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Stir in candy bar pieces and dry ingredients until well-blended.  Chill for 30 minutes.  Drop dough by 1/2 tsp onto greased baking sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until done.  Remove from sheets and cool on wire racks.

******Congratulations to our son, Blake,  for finishing his classes for grad school with an overall  4.0 GPA!!! Way to Go!!******

  1. I love candy bar recipes. They add so much to the cookie or cake that they are added to.

    I relate to using the blog to find a recipe. It happens all too often, for me.

    Thanks for sharing with My Sweet and Savory

  2. Our family has been making these for years. Love them!

  3. I love Baby Ruth bars--I might just eat those without mixing them into the dough!

    My daughters have appreciated that I put so many recipes and instructions on my blog--they can log on and find things even if I'm out and about.

  4. Visiting from the Brambleberry link party and oh my I love Baby Ruths / gotta save this recipe : )
