Cookie butter is not a new concept, I know this. But if you’ve followed my blog since the beginning, you’ll know that I am a huge fan of it. So obviously I am always thinking about how I can use it in my baked goods. This past summer I posted a recipe for my cookie butter birthday cake. I just love the stuff. So enter, the cookie butter cookies.
If you’re not in the loop of all things *trendy* in the baking world, cookie butter is basically Biscoff cookies (or Speculoo’s if you’re a Trader Joe’s fan) blended into a peanut butter type paste. They’re sold in most groceries stores and online. It also comes in chunky and smooth. I’m drooling just thinking about it, it’s unreal.
Cookie Butter Cookies
These cookies are my new favorite cookie. They’re rich and decadent. If I had to describe the flavor, I think the best I can say is that it has a molasses/butterscotch type flavor profile. One of the best thing about these cookies is the texture differences. The cookie dough itself is very smooth. So I added crushed Biscoff cookies and then rolled them in granulated sugar. Both of these things add a great crunch to the cookie. To me, texture is everything and these two steps just put it over the top for me.
The other great thing about this recipe is how easy it is to make! The dough took me less than 10 minutes to throw together. I also use a melon baller (like this one) to scoop the cookies into the right shape quickly before rolling in the sugar. It’s really that easy.
