Yes, you read the title correctly; some genius out there at one point turned cookies into butter and made the world a better place – only for me to waltz in, put my thang down, flip it, and reverse it by turning cookie butter back into…cookies. Thousands of years ago I might have been burned at the stake for such witchcraft! Also, I know me stating that these are the chewiest ever is a bold statement – but they are. I’m not going to downplay these bad boys in an effort to remain modest; these really are the chewiest Cookie Butter cookies ever.
I remember the first time I heard about cookie butter. I asked a friend, “What? That’s a thing? What do you eat it with?”
“With a spoon,” she replied in a serious tone. Best reply ever, and she wasn’t lying.
But I saw even more potential in this jar of Biscoff/Speculoos/depends-where-you’re-from magic, and I wanted to play. So, I searched the Internet for the chew-chew-chewiest Cookie Butter Cookie recipe I could find, and babes, I found it. These cookies are so chewy they seem raw; these cookies make licking the bowl seem like second best. These are the cream of the crop; the crème de la crème, and – I’m out of food-related idioms.
I’m going to make these cookies again (and again, and again) in the fall. They just scream for the cooler weather with their warm, spiced gingerbread-like flavour. I certainly wouldn’t be against making them in the warmer months, but I’m the type that likes to “set the scene” and I love when food is fitting to the seasons; it leaves me pining for them in the off-seasons, appreciating them that much more once I can indulge.
