Cookie Butter Cookies aka Crack Cookies

I apologize, I've been sitting on this recipe for a while now!  I made these for Thanksgiving dessert and they were a huge hit, "like crack" I'm pretty sure my aunt proclaimed.  Let's be real, anything with cookie butter is bound to be a winner.  Has anyone tried the cookie butter cheesecake bites at TJ's??  I've noticed them in the freezer section, but I've restrained myself….for now.

These are chewy, gooey, chocolaty with a hint of spice from the speculoos.  It's supposed to snow today in the Northeast.  Let's stay home, and eat alllllll the cookies!  





Cookie Butter Crack Cookies
Recipe adapted from here

Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups AP flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
14 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar (I used 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar, 1/4 brown sugar)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 large egg + 1 egg yoke
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used semisweet, I think dark would be yummy)
1 1/2 cups cookie butter
flaked sea salt such as Maldon for sprinkling

Directions:

Preheat over to 325 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk flour and baking soda together in a bowl.  Set aside.

Brown 10 tbsp of butter in a small pot over medium heat.  Whisk until color is medium brown and you get a nutty aroma.  Be sure to scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.

Pour butter into bowl of electric mixer.  Mix in remaining 4 tbsp of butter until dissolved.  Add in both sugars, salt and vanilla.  Mix to combine.  Let sit 3 minutes, then mix again for 30 seconds.  Do this 2 more times.

Mix in flour mixture until completely combined.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball.  Make an indent in the cookie and stuff with a teaspoon of cookie butter.  Fold the dough around the cookie butter and roll into a smooth ball.  Sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Cookies will look slightly underdone but will firm up when cooling.

Remove from over and place on wire rack to cool.

Devour!
