Cookie Butter Chunk Cookies - Rebekah and her Ramblings. A soft cookie packed with homemade cookie butter chunks!Look! I’m posting two days in a row!  For once, I’m not ignoring the reminders on my phone telling me to blog (which I do way more often than I like to admit).  I sent these little gems to Ellie on her adventures.  Ellie loves cookie butter because Ellie has amazing taste.  I mean, she chose me as a friend, so she has to have impecable taste.  Anyway, these cookies are full of white chocolate chips AND homemade cookie butter chunk/chip thingies.  It’s quite delicious.

Prep Time: 3-4 hours               Cook Time: 10-13 minutes

What you need:

  • 3.5 oz white chocolate bar (like Ghiradelli), melted
  • 1/2 cup cookie butter
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1.5 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 2.25 cup AP flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Cookie Butter Chunk Cookies - Rebekah and her Ramblings. A soft cookie packed with homemade cookie butter chunks!Directions:

  • Stir the melted chocolate bar with the cookie butter until well combined
  • On a parchment lined cookie sheet (or 9 x 13 pan), spread the cookie butter mixture in an even, thin layer and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.  I stored mine for 1.5 hours
  • Remove the cookie butter pan from the fridge and chop into chunks; set aside
  • Combine the butter and brown sugar in a large bowl and beat well
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating between each addition
  • Add flour, baking powder, and salt – mix well
  • Fold the cooking butter chunks into the dough and continue to mix – mine ended up melting into the dough which gave it a gorgeous consistency
  • Refrigerate the dough, covered, for at least 1 hour
  • Preheat the oven to 350* and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  • Pour the white chocolate chips into a small bowl
  • Scoop 1 tablespoon of dough out and form it into a mound (like the picture)Cookie Butter Chunk Cookies - Rebekah and her Ramblings. A soft cookie packed with homemade cookie butter chunks!
  • Dip the mound into the white chocolate chips, making sure only the top of the dough gets the chips
  • Place the dough, chip side up, on the cookie sheet and bake for 10-13 minutes – mine were done in about 11
  • Let the cookies sit for about 2 minutes on the cookie tray outside the oven before removing to a cooling rack
