  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat butter, brown sugar, and 3/4 cup white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add cookie butter and peanut butter; beat until fluffy. Mix flour, egg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into the butter mixture creating a cookie dough. Roll dough into teaspoon-size balls.
  3. Spread 1/3 cup sugar into a shallow dish. Roll dough balls in the sugar to coat and arrange onto the prepared baking sheet. Press dough balls with a fork twice to flatten slightly and press a crosshatch shape into the top of the cookies.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can find cookie butter at Trader Joe's®. They also sell cookie cocoa butter. You can also stuff the cookies with leftover cookie butter by putting a 1/2 teaspoon on a cookie sheet, freezing it for a half-hour, and then rolling the cookie dough around it!

My cookie came out rather dry. The taste was ok but I honestly felt the peanut butter overshadowed the cookie butter taste. Next time I might try a different cookie butter ratio, or maybe almond...

I've been hearing about Cookie Butter, so when I was at Trader Joe's today, I finally picked up some. I knew this would be sweet because of what I've heard, so if you don't like sweet, don't be...

Very good...but then again...I love anything with Biscoff spread...and yes...that is what cookie butter is.

After finding this recipe we drove to Knoxville to Trader Joe's for the cookie butter. I followed the recipe exactly (as usual before submitting a review) and although this is a good recipe, I ...

Make the filled version suggested in the cook's notes -- incredible! Wrap the frozen filling with dough and roll into balls.

I made it just like the recipe but baked them only 10 minutes. I don't know how accurate my oven temperature is though. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and used a meat tenderizer on the...

I don't even like peanut butter cookies and these are irresistible to me! They are so delicious! We first made them at Christmas time and thought we'd be able to wait until next Christmas but ...

Made this and loved it! My little girl is allergic to peanuts so I substituted with Nutella like suggested in another post. The flavor is not super strong but still taste great!

Turned out great. I did add a little more peanut butter-used the fresh honey roasted peanut butter from Whole Foods. and added a bit of vanilla. Next time I think I'll add some applesauce though...
