Love cookie butter? Then these cookie butter blondies will blow you away. They are moist, chewy, and filled with the unique and mouth-watering cookie butter taste you love.
Just like the jar says – you have to taste it to understand cookie butter. I don’t quite know how to describe it – it’s kind of like a marriage between peanut butter and caramel that tastes like gingerbread and butter cookies.
What I do know is that these cookie butter blondies are to-die for. They are so good that before you know it, you’ve eaten several slices. And they go straight to your thighs. That makes them evil (so beware). But you know what? Totally worth it.
Cookie butter love
Penotti is more widely available here in Canada but our favourite brand is Speculoos from Trader Joe’s. We love it so much that it’s one of the things we
hoard keep a zombie apocalypse stockpile of buy a lot of when we’re across the border.
We typically eat it with pancakes and waffles (eating it directly from the jar with a spoon is a given). Red eats it with a banana. I’ve used it as filling and frosting for cupcakes a few times. So I thought it would most likely work really well incorporated in a brownie or a cheesecake too.
So the recipe hunt begins. And this cookie butter blondie recipe that I found results in a bar that’s just as I imagined it would be – moist, chewy and with cookie butter goodness oozing from every bite. The white chocolate chips add texture and a very distinct flavour that pairs perfectly with that awesome cookie butter taste. It’s very easy to make too. No electric mixer required.
Cookie butter blondies
In case you don’t know what a blondie is (I know I didn’t; I had to Google what it was when I found this recipe) – they are, technically, butterscotch-flavored brownies (and both brownies and blondies fall under the category of bars).
Could cookie butter be a kind of butterscotch then? The mystery (or maybe just my confusion) deepens. Ah well. Just bake these blondies and enjoy. Perfect with tea, for bake sales, as a snack, as a reward at the end of a workday. We can exercise later.
