Cookie Butter Cookie Bars are gooey and chewy chocolate chip cookie bars with cookie butter as the base for these. Think spices and comforting tones.
What is Cookie Butter?
Cookie butter is a a spread like Nutella made from Biscoff cookies or Speculoos cookies. The flavour is very Christmas like. Full of spice flavour but very buttery and slightly sweet. I could honestly eat cookie butter by the spoonful!
This recipe has been updated from the 2018 version to make the cookie bars bigger and better than ever!
When I first posted this recipe, it was the first time I had even tried or seen cookie butter or Biscoff spread!
Now we have warm and inviting spice flavoured cookie bars with bursts of chocolate chips. Getting the right balance between cookie butter, butter and sugar is the key to the gooey and chewy factor.
