Gainesville just got a Trader Joe's!!! It's awesome. Mr. T and I went the first Saturday that they were open. It was so crowded that we didn't get a chance to really look around but one of the things I did manager to grab was a jar of Cookie Butter.
Cookie Butter is the consistency of peanut butter but is made up of gingersnaps (and other stuff). Alone it's pretty amazing but made into a cookie it transforms into... COOKIECEPTION!!
I want to give this cookie another chance. I think my downfall was using a super basic cookie recipe. Mr. T liked them fine but I felt that the lack of flour in them made the sugar granules more obvious.
Cookie Butter Cookies:
1 cup cookie butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350. In a mixing bowl mix the sugar, egg, and vanilla together. Add the cookie butter and mix until the mixture just comes together.
Spoon onto a cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
** I used a fork to make cross hatches in my cookies (just like you would regular peanut butter cookies). You don't have to though.
