Easy Recipe: Cookie Butter Cookies


When you realize you haven't blogged in two weeks! Yikes! Blame it on strep throat followed by a trip to New Orleans and I think I've been trying to recover ever since! Today I'm sharing a quick and easy holiday cookie recipe I made for our neighborhood's cookie exchange. We are avid CrossFit fans, so if you follow the sport at all, you're familiar with Mat Fraser. His fiancée does his cooking and documents all of it on her Instagram, @feedingthefrasers. When I saw her Cookie Butter Cookies, I knew I had to try them! The Trader Joes Cookie Butter is seriously amazing, and I'm dreaming of the ways to add on to this recipe... maybe a fun Nutter Butter-esque sandwich? As you can see, Jeff did most of the baking, but this was the easy and delicious recipe I was looking for on this lazy Sunday! Enjoy!



Cookie Butter Cookies, from Feeding the Frasers
Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Trader Joe's Cookie Butter
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Cooking Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together cookie butter, butter, and sugars until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla, mix.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually mix together the flour into the butter and sugar combination until it is well combined.
  4. Place 1 inch balls of dough onto parchment-covered  (or these great baking silpats!) baking sheet.
  5. Using a fork, create a cross-pattern on the dough. Dip fork into water to prevent sticking to the dough.
  6. Bake for 9 minutes at 350 degrees.
  7. Allow time to cool on tray before moving to a wire rack for effective cooling, they'll need time to set on the tray!
