      This recipe was way too dry to even come together with just one egg. I added another egg and just a touch of veg oil, and it was just right for me.

    the written recipe omitted the butterfinger pieces in the instructions. were listed in the ingredients but not the making of the recipe. The video showed it being used.

    […] Dessert Idea:  Butterfinger Cake Cookies […]

    In the recipe it says to add cake mix, butter and egg. It never says when to add the butterfinger pieces.
    Secondly: scoop onto sheet about 1 inch apart (omitted dough)
    But also “use a knife to form cookies when removed from oven if desired.”

    No offense….but you need to revise your recipe!!

    This recipe needs to be corrected. Some comments that addressed the problem are about 2 yrs old, and still the recipe has not been fixed! I bet these are awesome too. A seasoned cook could figure out the steps needed to fix the errors in the directions but someone new to baking would be lost! Please correct! 🙁
