Cookie butter looks and behaves like peanut butter, so I thought “Why not make cookies? You make cookies with peanut butter, so cookie butter cookies should be a million times better!”

And I wasn’t wrong! These cookies are absolutely delicious!!! They are chewy with just the right hint of cinnamon. And the cookies will give your guests an unexpected surprise if they are not familiar with cookie butter. It’s enough flavor that makes you go “hmmm…. what is that?” but not enough to get it mistaken for peanut butter.

Unexpected surprise….yet it will be welcomed.

And these cookies couldn’t be any easier to make. No special equipment needed! Just cream, stir, scoop, bake, and consume! The recipe is also super easy to remember! I nicknamed these cookies the “Half Cup Cookies” since you basically need a half cup of almost every ingredient!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup cookie butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1.25 cups flour
  • 0.75 teaspoons baking soda
  • 0.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 0.5 teaspoons salt
Directions
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F and line sheet pans with parchment paper. Set pans aside.
Cream together the butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Next, add in the egg and cookie butter and beat until it is throughly combined.
Slowly stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into the butter mixture, being careful not to over-mix the dough.
Once the dough has come together, shape rounded tablespoons of cookie dough into balls and place 3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten cookies slightly with either a cross-hatched pattern made with a fork, or by adding a chocolate chip disc to the center of the cookie dough.
Bake in the oven for 12 – 14 minutes, rotating the pans 180 degrees halfway through cooking.
Allow to cookies to cool on a wire rack and then enjoy!
