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

1 egg

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.

Cook’s Notes:

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!
