I was so excited when my friend Tracy brought me a jar of this Speculoos Cookie Butter from Trader Joe’s in Bellingham!
I knew I wanted to bake something with it immediately.
I decided on these no bake cookies, they looked simple and I wanted to cookie butter flavor to really shine.
They turned out AH-MAZING! So easy and ridiculously tasty!
My in house taste tester loved them.
What you need,
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
½ cup milk (the recipe called for whole milk, I only had 1% and it worked fine)
½ cup butter (the recipe called for unsalted, but as usual I used salted)
Pinch of salt (I left this out because of the salted butter thing!)
¾ cup cookie butter
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups quick cooking oats
In a large saucepan combine the sugar, milk, butter and salt if you are using it. Heat over medium high until it reaches a rolling boil, stirring occasionally. Once it is boiling let it go for 1 full minute without stirring.
Remove from the heat and stir in the cookie butter and vanilla until smooth. Fold in the oats.
Drop by the heaping tablespoon onto wax paper. Let the cookies cool completely.
There you have it simple and delicious!
Cookies made with Cookie Butter, who would have thought!
