I am a serious Chocolate Chip Cookie junkie. I mean, my blog is filled with delicious and irresistible Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes like my Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Pie, Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Chocolate Chip Buttercream, and Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Those are just a few of my chocolate chip recipes! Now I am adding a new one to the mix, which is these Loaded Cookie Butter Cookies. I can’t stop! The best thing about these cookies is the cookie butter that’s in the recipe. It’s like adding more cookies to make an already delicious cookie even better!
What is Cookie Butter?
If you ever had a Biscoff Cookie on an airplane, you have already experienced the deliciousness of cookie butter. But to give you a better idea, cookie butter is ground cookies such as ginger snaps, graham crackers, and shortbread cookies pulsed into a smooth cream-like texture. It is used for toast, used as a fruit dip, or (what I do) just eating straight out of the jar. I should know because I made Homemade Cookie Butter before.
Adding the cookie butter to this recipe deepens the cookie flavor a bit more and makes the cookies soft and chewy. If you never added cookie butter (Biscoff spread) to your cookie batter you don’t know what you are missing.
These cookies are loaded with chopped pecans, chocolate chips, and toffee pieces. You absolutely can omit any of these ingredients if you would like, but unless you have a food allergy like my son, you won’t want to. I encourage you to try these cookies just as they are made in the recipe so you can get the whole experience of this cookie. You can purchase Cookie Butter from Trader Joe’s or use Biscoff Spread.
