Chocolate Cookies with Biscoff Cookie Butter Filling

Chocolate Cookies with Biscoff Cookie Butter Filling

I realized a few months back that cookie butter is one of my most favorite things ever.  I can eat the stuff by the spoonful straight out of the jar and I just don’t know when to quit.

It really surprised me how much I love it considering I’m not really a fan of peanut butter.  I mean, peanut butter is okay if it’s in the form of a Reese’s cup or something,  but otherwise, I could live without it.

But since cookie butter is so much like peanut butter in consistency, I decided that it would be perfect to try out in recipes that normally call for peanut butter.  That’s how these cookies came to be.

The first recipe I made was actually these Biscoff Cookie Butter Swirled Cheesecake Bars… but since I still had more cookie butter in the jar and I was determined to not eat it all straight off the spoon, I kept digging and found another recipe I wanted to try.

Chocolate Cookies Biscoff Spread

So I found a recipe in an old Taste of Home cookbook and adapted it to make these Chocolate Cookies with Cookie Butter Filling.  I used Biscoff Spread (aka cookie butter), but you could use any brand or variety that you like or even switch back to peanut butter if you must.

However, I strongly recommend that you try these cookies with a cookie butter.   I don’t think you’ll regret it!

So here we go… the recipe for Chocolate Cookies with Biscoff Cookie Butter Filling.

Ingredients

    For the cookie outside:
  • 4 oz salted butter, softened (equal to 1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Biscoff Spread (or other cookie butter or peanut butter)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • For the filling:
  • 3/4 cup Biscoff Spread (or other cookie butter or peanut butter)
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

Equipment:

3 mixing bowls
Hand mixer
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
Small and medium cookie scoops (optional)

Step 1:
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugars, and 1/4 cup of cookie butter.

Step 2:

Add in the egg and vanilla; mix well.

Step 3:

In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, and baking soda.

Step 4:

Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and mix well.

Step 5:

Divide into 24 pieces, and flatten each piece into a 3-inch circle.  Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Note:  I used a scoop to get cookies all the same size and then I used my fingers to do flatten the balls.  You could also roll them by hand and then flatten them.

Step 6:

In another bowl, mix together the confectioners’ sugar with remaining 3/4 cup cookie butter until smooth.

Step 7:  

Using a small cookie scoop, dip out 24 balls of the cookie butter filling.  Again, you could roll these by hand – they need to be around  1 inch each.

Step 8:

Place one peanut butter ball on each circle; bring edges over to completely cover it.   The dough may crack a little when doing this – just reshape them as needed.

Step 9:  

Once the cookie dough filling is completely covered, place the cookies back on the prepared cookie sheet with the seam side down.

Step 10:  

Slightly flatten each cookie  again with your fingers or you could use the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.  Either way works just fine!

    I’m with Shannon up here in Canada but way over on the east coast. I’ve never heard of cookie butter before. Please tell me more!
    By the way – Happy Thanksgiving Shannon!

      This is what I told Shannon… I’ll just cut and paste :) I’m not sure how to describe the taste except for super delicious!! The texture is almost identical to peanut butter but it tastes like cookies or maybe a little like graham crackers. I know that Trader Joe’s has their own brand of cookie butter and I know you can order it online if you’d like to try it! It’s on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/GYGa2j
