Memo from the Department of Redundant Redundancies:
Your repetitious title seems to be repetitive.
Sincerely, Mr. Mister
So, I’ve had this idea for a while, but I decided to finally try it out: Cookie Butter Cookies. Yes, I’m going back to the well that is Cookie Butter (aka Speculoos), which is essentially ground up cookies formed into a butter and they’re delicious. As always I’m trying to put my own little spin on them, so that’s what’s up. By the way, these cookies are probably not for the faint of heart. Maybe someday I’ll make something that is more diet friendly, but today is not that day. I should hate myself for making these, or maybe it’s because I hate myself that I’m making them, but turns out I just like to tinker with stuff most people wouldn’t think of tinkering with. This particular recipe is a jumpoff of this LandOLakes butter cookie.
Cookie Butter Butter Cookies
1 cup of butter
- 3/4 cup of cookie butter
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- Mix butter and cookie butter until creamy.
- Add sugars, egg, vanilla, and baking powder. Mix.
- Slowly add in flour half a cup at a time. Mix.
- Place cookie dough in refrigerator 2 hours or so, until dough firms up.
- Prior to removing preheat oven to 350
- Baking time varies depending on your method of forming cookies. Cookie press, cookie cutters, dough balls, etc. Keep an eye on them and remove when they begin to brown. You can leave them on the cookie sheet and let residual heat finish them off for crispy cookies, otherwise remove and place on cooling rack, plate, etc.
Your cookies should come out nice and tasty, they’re not terribly sweet, but they’re good. No complaints from the peanut gallery. Kids enjoyed them and if it were up to them they’d probably have finished them off in the first night.
Everyone at work seemed to love them. I prefer them as bigger cookies because I like them chewy and not crispy, but either way you tell me what you think of them because they’re pretty great if I do say so myself. Be forewarned as thin little cookies they were described to me as being, ‘dangerous’ because they’re so small and you will want them by the handful’s.
Please share any thoughts and come back again. Until then, I’m peacing out.
