Sugar Cookie Butter Bars


Sugar Cookie Layer:

2 cups sugar

2 ½ cups flour

½ tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

2 sticks (1 cups) of real butter softened

2 tsp. vanilla extract

This is Biscoff Cookie Butter and I found it with the peanut butters.  It is made from those really nummy cookies you get on airplanes sometimes.  Maybe buy two, one to use in the recipe and one to ‘taste for quality check’.  I’m sure you’ll be like me and check it often, you never know when it might change, right!

  1. Carrie,

    These bars sound so good. I just came from the kitchen searching for something sweet. These bars would hit the spot. I have never heard of cookie butter before. I will look for it in my store with the peanut butter.
