Since I first bought Cookie Butter a couple of months ago, my husband has been eating it like crazy, he’s even been putting it on my Molasses Cookies, apparently the cookie itself wasn’t enough.
A few days ago it just hit me, we’ve been using cookie butter in the place of peanut butter on toast and in frosting like I did here, why not replace it in my no bake cookie recipe?
So that’s exactly what I did.
These Cookie Butter No Bake Cookies are based off a recipe from one of Matt and I’s old bosses. In high school, we both worked at a local convenient store and she used to make all the cookies. The no bakes were my favorite and I begged her for the recipe! I’ve now been making this same recipe for eight years and I’ve yet to have a bad batch.
Matt likes the Biscoff Cookie Spread (found in most grocery stores), where I’m a little partial to the Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter. You could use either in the recipe and it would still be amazing!
I brought these into work and everyone really enjoyed them. One of my co-workers sent me an email after eating hers and said:
“The cookie is delicious – not too sweet – perfect. It leaves an aftertaste which is gingery, creamy, and even a tad of coconut. DEEElicious!!!”.
I love introducing people to cookie butter. You know, creating more addicts… does that make me a bad influence?
These are such an easy cookie to make and you don’t even need to turn the oven on, how great is that! They really are the perfect balance of sweetness. Normally I can’t eat a whole no bake cookie without consuming a gallon of milk right along with it, but these are just right. Make them for your next get together and watch people ohh and ahh over the amazing flavor… or just keep them all for yourself! They’d be perfect for a cookie swap too!
