Pumpkin Butterfinger Cookies

Two of my favorite flavors are Butterfingers and pumpkin, I don’t care what time of year it is.  But, since it’s fall and all {look! I rhymed}, I’m jumping on the pumpkin band wagon a bit here.

How could I not bring my two favorite flavors loves together into one happy bite?  I mean come on, stores shelves are lined with fun-sized Butterfingers {which means there are some for me to hoard not and share with anyone} and pumpkin puree.  It’s a sign.

I do think these cookies need a little something extra.  Next time I’m going to drizzle melted semi-sweet chocolate over the top or do a half dip to kick up the chocolate/pumpkin flavor.  The best part of these cookies is getting a melted Butterfingers bite.  Mmmm.
