A delectable cookie

Happy Saturday ya’ll! ❤ With Mother’s Day tomorrow I figured I would share this awesome recipe I tried last week that was a total hit in our house! My hubby swears he doesn’t like sweets and rarely eats them, so typically when I bake its me and A with 3 dozen cookies or 2 loaves of bread to ourselves. However, after making this recipe, hubby turned into a little cookie monster!

I had been wanting to make these forever, but with school I simply never got around to doing it. I finally decided to give them a go, especially since if I didn’t, we’d have a full jar of this glorious goodness that I could eat by the spoonful all day long…

Thanks to my friend Mila for this oh-so-delicious cookie recipe. I’m not a big fan of chocolate chip cookies, (weird I know)  and these reminded me of them only they were BETTER! They’re SO good that you are sure to LOVE them too. 😉

I followed the recipe exactly and they were perfect! Seriously, perfectly scrumptious and really moist!

Cookie Butter Cookies 

INGREDIENTS:

1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup cookie butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped semisweet chocolate

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, cookie butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth.

  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the honey, water, and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture.

  4. Fold in chocolate chunks.

  5. Drop by 1/4 cupfuls 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

  6. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are golden. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheet before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

  7. Enjoy!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
