“Baby Ruth” Cookie

This is from an old 1942 recipe.  That is before I was born.  I found it in an old cook book of mine and thought I’d try it.  Doesn’t it look good?



3/12 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp soda
1 ½ cups sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
6 cut up 1.2 oz “Baby Ruth” candy bars
Blend flour with salt and soda in a small bowl and set aside. Gradually add sugar to the butter in a mixing bowl; cream until light and fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.  Blend in dry ingredients gradually; mix thoroughly.  Stir in candy pieces.  Chill dough for 20 minutes for easy handling. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.   Drop by tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheet.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. 
You don’t have to use a Baby Ruth but the original recipe called for the Babe Ruth.  You can use what ever your favorite candy bar is.  How about a Butterfingers or a Heath?
Variation:  Try making your favorite brownie recipe and putting chopped candy bars in it.  You can use a box mix to make it easy.  I bet it will impress those eating it. 
Have a sweet day.  Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
