Uh oh. I've done it. I've officially created the cookie to end all cookies. Yes, you read the title correctly. I made cheesecake, turned it into cookies, and then smothered those cookies with more cookies made out of cookie butter.
I've got a game for you guys. Every time I write the word "cookie" in this blog post, you have to eat a cookie.
Prepare your bodies.
So I think we can all agree that Speculoos Cookie Butter is the created thing to ever happen to the world. You don't know what cookie butter is? Well I'm about to change your life.
Speculoos cookies are a caramelized biscuit type of cookie, originally from Begium, where they are made during various winter holidays. They have a flavor similar to gingerbread and cinnamon, and they're fantastic with coffee or tea in the mornings.
Well, Trader Joe (aka my dream man) took those cookies, and mashed them up with some other stuff and made cookie butter. It's like peanut butter, but made with cookies and it's better than sex. In fact, when I'm particularly stressed out I've been known to eat cookie butter straight from the jar.
So I went to Trader Joe's, bought everything that had the word cookie butter in it, and decided to make some cookies. As some of you might know, I broadcast myself baking on Periscope every Sunday, and last week I had a few requests to make cheesecake. My only concern with making an entire cheesecake is that I didn't really want one just hanging out my house, waiting for me to sleep eat it. Something I may or may not do.
I've made oreo cheesecake cookies before, and they were lovely. But I decided to take my cheesecake cookies to the next level. By rolling them in Speculoos Cookies and Cookie butter filled cookies. Not surprisingly they turned out awesome.
And you know what else? These cookies have little pieces of toffee in them, so they've got a yummy little crunch as well.
I hope you try this recipe, and if you do I hope you share a picture of them with me! Tag them on facebook, instagram or twitter with #SugarandSatire so I'll be able to see them!
