Cookie Butter Cookies



Recipe by: Adapted from Housewife Eclectic
Yield: 24 cookies

These warm cookie butter cookies are delicious right out of the oven, or schmeared with coffee butter, salted caramel butter, or even a little extra cookie butter!

Ingredients:
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar, plus extra for rolling
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup crunchy cookie butter (Trader Joe’s Speculoos Spread or Biscoff Spread)
1 egg
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and cover two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, and two sugars until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes). Add the cookie butter and egg and combine. Add in the flour, baking sodar, and baking powder, and mix until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar. Place about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and gently remove from the pan to a cooling rack so the bottoms don’t get too brown. Cool completely and spread with coffee butter, salted caramel butter, or more cookie butter!

Do you mean AFTER I slathered it on anything that didn’t move? My tongue, of course!! ;o) Seriously, though, first on homemade bread, cookies, pound cake … oh, this list could be rather endless couldn’t it? But definitely on the tongue with the biggest spoon I could find. :o)

What would I slather cookie butter on?

If I had cookie butter, there wouldn’t be anything left un-slathered.

I vote for Biscoff, too, but note that Trader Joe’s also has a “crunchy” version with cookie bits! The TJ’s versions have more spice I think and while both are delicious, Biscoff has it nailed!

I compared crunchy to crunchy, just to be fair :)

Suzanne May 13, 2013 at 9:43 pm

I have never had either one! Poor me. I think that I would try it on a biscuit!

<3 love this brand …. great taste!

tracy mclaughlin May 13, 2013 at 9:47 pm

what wouldnt I try it on:) l’m thinking it might be really good on pancakes or as an extra layer in a icecream sandwich cookie.

Lotus is the brand that I would pick!

The speculaas is a favorite of mine also from when I lived in Beverwijk, Holland for 5 years. But for now the Lotus brand is the brand of choice.

Charlotte Kosa May 13, 2013 at 9:53 pm

I would slather it on a lotus biscoff cookie for double taste treat.

Sliced bananas. :)

If I didn’t eat it straight from the jar? That stuff is going all over EVERYTHING. :D

Well after I ate several spoonfuls I’d make some brownies to put it on. Oh and definitely dipping the oreos in the cabinet in it lol :)

I would slather cookie butter on a spoon & then pop it in my mouth!

These sound awesome!! Loooove those butters.

Kate May 13, 2013 at 10:28 pm

My favorite thing to spread it on is those Moravian Ginger cookies! Perfect combination of crunchy, spicy cookie and sweet, creamy cookie spread. Divine.

Jeffrey May 13, 2013 at 10:58 pm

I would go for a nice, hearty, wheaty piece of bread, preferably the heel!

grace May 13, 2013 at 10:58 pm

i’ve been deeply deprived in that i haven’t had access to either! i’d slather mine on anything, including my pointer finger.

Monica h May 13, 2013 at 11:18 pm

oooh, I’d put it on pancakes or waffles! I didn’t even know they made crunchy Biscoff spread. I want!

Jess May 13, 2013 at 11:32 pm

What WOULDN’T I slather that stuff on?? I’ve never had the spread, but my husband gets Biscoff cookies for me on every flight he takes (he travels a lot for business), and they are kind of *amazing*. ♥

I think it would be pretty awesome on pizzelle, to start. ♥

I love flavored butter so much. All I’ve ever done is the typical herb butter, though. The book sounds super fun!

Elizabeth @ Confessions of a Baking Queen May 14, 2013 at 12:57 am

MMM I am with you on Biscoff. I like tj’s version but it is not as good as Biscoff!! I love me some biscoff whether it’s baked in a cookie, slathered on toast, dipping for apples… the list goes on! LOL

What wouldn’t I slather this on? A spoon? A car tire? :)

Reply

Kelly May 14, 2013 at 1:43 am

A spoon. And maybe pound cake. Cookies. Brownies. Spoons.

Reply

Susana I. May 14, 2013 at 2:50 am

Maybe over brownies or as filling for vanilla cake or with ice cream…. :)

Reply

Tara May 14, 2013 at 2:55 am

I eat it with a spoon. Sometimes on toast and even on cookies sometimes, but mostly with a spoon straight from the jar.

Reply

Amanda Thompson May 14, 2013 at 3:24 am

Brownies or swirled in a milkshake!

Reply

sarah kozlowski May 14, 2013 at 3:35 am

I would first try it by spoon since I have yet to try it!
Then I would maybe use it in a brownie or cupcake recipe.

Reply

Mora May 14, 2013 at 5:01 am

I have never tried this before, would love to try it. :-)

Reply

Corisa May 14, 2013 at 7:20 am

slather that on a huge spoon!

Averie @ Averie Cooks May 14, 2013 at 8:13 am

I love this post, Julie! I love cookie butter/biscoff and I totally agree with your assessment that CB is a little more cinnamon/gingery/spicy and that Biscoff is smoother and more honey/graham-ish. I’ve taken to making my own spread that tastes like cookiebutter but I try not to make it too often b/c I go through it so fast :)

Your cookies look awesome. Pinned! love the ridges & ripples!

Loren May 14, 2013 at 11:11 am

Can I just say straight spoon to mouth? Mmmm or brownies, or pancakes

Nicole de B. May 14, 2013 at 11:14 am

I prefer my “cookie” butter (biscoff ftw!!) on chewy fresh European bread with lots of seeds. For breakfast. Topped with hagelslag puur, please. :- )

OMG those cookies……… and the butters. The possibilities are endless and everything sounds amazing.

Cookie butter on top of cookies… yes!!

Reply

Amanda @ Food, Fitness, Faith May 14, 2013 at 1:59 pm

Crunchy cookie butter is my kryptonite! And these cookies will certainly be the death of me…or my bikini body ;)

linda May 14, 2013 at 2:05 pm

Biscoff is just wonderful any which way!

Reply

Jeanne May 14, 2013 at 2:15 pm

I make a lovely Colonial Brown Bread that would be especially yummy with this spread!!!

Don’t you just love this book? We’ve gone a bit butter crazy over here…loved the vanilla citrus but the coffee butter was the 2nd one I made and yes, it’s wonderful on a croissant or a scone or even just s simple spoon.

We don’t have Trader Joe’s in Denver yet (this year!!) but it’s OK, I love the Biscoff spread and these cookies must happen.

Elin May 14, 2013 at 3:24 pm

Whole wheat toast!

Woah Julie these look amazing! I am such a sucker for a crinkly, chewy cookie and these look just that. Thank you for sharing!

Colette @ JFF! May 14, 2013 at 6:05 pm

I love Biscoff and adding it to cookies just makes a cookie out of a cookie!

Reply

Linda K. May 14, 2013 at 6:23 pm

I mostly use it on graham crackers.

Laura Dembowski May 14, 2013 at 6:55 pm

These cookies look awesome! I love Biscoff and can never seem to find the right cookie recipe using it – now I have :)

Reply

Erica May 14, 2013 at 7:51 pm

It usually goes on slathered because I’ve eaten it straight from the jar with a spoon. But when I’m not being impatient and can slather it on something, it usually involved lots of chocolate.

Reply

Lindsay Wynne May 14, 2013 at 7:58 pm

layered between oatmeal cookies sounds like a good way to enjoy the cookie butter, but I’m guessing I’d eat it off the knife before I could slather the cookie :)

Reply

Sarah May 15, 2013 at 12:03 am

I’d make soft, sweet breakfast rolls and slather my cookie butter on them.

Reply

Crystal @ TriFoodieMD May 15, 2013 at 12:28 am

I keep hearing everyone rant and rave about Biscoff, yet I have yet to try it. I’d first eat a spoonful directly from the jar to gain a true appreciation. Then it would be good smeared on toast and topped with banana slices.

Cori May 15, 2013 at 12:42 am

A spoon

Cricket McGraw-Diller May 15, 2013 at 1:23 am

I would slather it on cookies, toast, cupcakes, possibly just eat it straight off the spoon.

My brother and I both love Biscoff spread. I have not tried the crunchy version, that’s next on my list!

abbie May 16, 2013 at 3:35 am

i eat my speculoos on apples—or straight from a spoon!

Debbie Holland May 16, 2013 at 6:42 am

I would smother my waffles then when they are gone it would be just it, the spoon and me…. ooooh sooooo goood

Can’t wait to try this spread. From the description, I can smell it.

Melissa Klotz May 16, 2013 at 6:50 pm

Oh man… Those COOKIES!!! They are so absolutely perfect. I would slather the butter on anything I can get my hands on. Including my fingers.

Elaine Sumner May 16, 2013 at 7:30 pm

Shortbread & bananas :)

Heather L May 16, 2013 at 8:46 pm

What would I slather it on? Honestly… I’d probably eat it with a spoon.

Definitely fresh pita bread

Coffee butter?! Oh my! Sounds incredible!

Ala May 20, 2013 at 5:15 am

Trader Joe’s is ALWAYS out of cookie butter, and I haven’t had the chance to try the Biscoff Spread–but I will get my hands on both as soon as I can. And when I do, these cookies are the first thing to pop into my oven! :)

Debbie Fine May 21, 2013 at 1:49 am

I want to bake these cookies and eat them with Salted Caramel Butter!!!!!!!!!!! omg
