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!
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat a cake pan, 9×13”, with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar for 3 minutes, or until it is light and fluffy.Add in the vanilla.
Add in one egg at a time, combining for about 30 seconds after each addition.Gradually add in the flour mixture just until it is combined, scraping down the sides of the mixing bowl as needed.Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the 9×13” pan.
I have a little trick of using a bit of powdered sugar on my fingers to help press the sticky dough into the pan and keep it off of my fingers.Bake for 23-29 minutes, or until the edges are a light brown, and cooked through.When done remove from oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes, then put it in the refrigerator for a half hour.
Now let’s make the next layer by softening the butter in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
Add in the cookie butter and microwave for 30 seconds.
Pour the butter and cookie butter into mixer bowl and add the powdered sugar. When the cookie layer has been in the refrigerator for half hour, spread on the cookie butter layer and spread evenly.
Put the pan back into the refrigerator and chill for another 30 minutes.When the cookie bar has chilled, melt the butter and chocolate together in the microwave.
Microwave a few more seconds if needed.
Spread the chocolate layer over the cookie butter layer and chill for another 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Bring the bars to room temperature and cut.Recipe adapted slightly from Wine & Glue. Copyright Carrie Groneman, A Mother’s Shadow, 2013Don’t miss out on additional yummy recipes! Join for our newsletter by clicking HERE
