Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soon the month of February will be ending.  We will enter into March and be that much closer to the season of Spring here in New England.  This reality makes my heart happy!  I completely LOVE spring time.  I love the newness, the gentle greenness, the fresh sweet smells and all the precious new beginnings that often come with Spring. 
 




 
Just as much as I adore Spring I love a good cookie recipe.  I think it has to with being a mom as my girls live for cookies!  Especially chocolate chip cookies. 

I thank the lovely Emily from Life on Food for sharing this cookie recipe that I share with all of you today. I discovered Life on Food  through my February assignment for February's Secret Recipe Club.  I had a wonderful time browsing through Emily's blog to pick the recipe I would make.  I really did try and find a recipe that wasn't sweet or baked.  I wanted to prove to all of you that I do in fact make things that are not baked. Such recipes that don't have sugar and butter in the them but rather veggies, pasta or even tomato sauce.  Unfortunately, the jar of Cookie Butter (that can be purchased at Trader Joe's) that was in my pantry had to be used.  Yes, it had to be used or else it would continue to be snuck out for a finger lick here and a finger there.  So yes, I followed my heart and my usual path of happiness and baked up a batch of Cookie Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies.  The original recipe from Life on Food is actually called, Biscoff Chocolate Chip Cookies but because of the necessity of my need to use the Cookie Butter I substituted the CB for the Biscoff. It worked out just perfect.  The cookies were soft.  The cookies were perfectly sweet with the hint of spice and richness that came from the Cookie Butter.  I was completely delighted with this recipe.  A definite recipe to be repeated!
 
 
 
 
Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
           ( slightly adapted recipe from Life on Food )
 
Ingredients:
 
1 stick (8oz.) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup Cookie Butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg, at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
 
Directions:
 
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
 
2. Cream together butter, Cookie Butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla extract.  Mix well all together.
 
3. In a large bowl whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.  Stir in chocolate chips.
 
4. Scoop out balls of batter onto prepared cookie sheets.  Slightly flatten with the bottom of a flour dusted glass if you wish.
 
5. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes depending on what size your cookies are.  I made pretty big cookies so it took closer to 12 minutes.
 
6. Allow cookies to cool for as long as you wish and enjoy! Store in a large sealed bag or container.
 
Yum!

  2. I've seen the Biscoff and Cookie Butter spreads at the store, but have yet to try one. Your recipe has definitely peeked my interest in buying one of them soon though.

    Thank you so much for being a member of the Secret Recipe Club and sharing your cooking talents with us.

  4. Everyone keeps telling me I need to try Biscoff and Cookie Butter ASAP. I'm really not sure why I haven't. It took me forever to try Nutella too.:)

    The cookies look super tasty. Happy Reveal Day!

  5. I saw Cookie Butter on a cooking show last week--I was intrigued. These look yummy. They just opened a Trader Joes in Salt Lake City--not far from my home. Can't wait to get there and do some shopping--and then some cooking!
    Great SRC pick.

  12. Avril, I am kind of addicted to cookie butter/Biscoff spread, and eat it with a spoon! I need to branch out and make these cookies instead:)
