Why You’ll Love These Cookies

I love cookie butter and am always trying to think of ways to use it, besides eating it straight out of the jar.

My boys are sugar cookie lovers, so I decided to combine the two into Cookie Butter sugar cookies!

The cookie butter adds a unique and delicious flavor to these classic sugar cookies and the frosting is made with even more cookie butter, adding extra flavor. Try adding white chocolate chips for a special treat!

What is Cookie Butter?

Cookie butter, also known as Biscoff spread, is a spread made from crushed speculoos cookies. It has a similar consistency to peanut butter and tastes like cinnamon and gingerbread.

You can typically find it in the international section of most grocery stores or near the jams and jellies. If you love cookie butter, try using it in these cookies, or even just spread on toast or a bagel!
