Recipe of the week:
Cookie Butter Cookies
¾ cup butter, softened
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup white sugar
½ cup cookie butter
½ cup peanut butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup white sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Beat butter, brown sugar, and 3/4 cup white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add cookie butter and peanut butter; beat until fluffy. Mix flour, egg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into the butter mixture creating a cookie dough. Roll dough into teaspoon-size balls.
Spread 1/3 cup sugar into a shallow dish. Roll dough balls in the sugar to coat and arrange onto the prepared baking sheet. Press dough balls with a fork twice to flatten slightly and press a crosshatch shape into the top of the cookies.
Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes.
You can find cookie butter at Trader Joe’s(R). They also sell cookie cocoa butter. You can also stuff the cookies with leftover cookie butter by putting a 1/2 teaspoon on a cookie sheet, freezing it for a half-hour, and then rolling the cookie dough around it!
