Next week marks a special week where we get to honor the fantastic teachers in our children’s lives. Being educators ourselves we get to reap the benefits too! Bonus! Supreme Cookie Butter Cookies are a small way to show these outstanding instructors big appreciation for making our kiddos such smart cookies! (We can’t guarantee giving these will help your student get straight A’s, but it won’t hurt!) Thank you for all you do teachers!
1 large egg
1 cup creamy Trader Joes Cookie Butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks
1 cup Heath bits
1 cup butterscotch chips
Mix together the egg, Cookie Butter, brown sugar, and vanilla on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Scape down the sides of the bowl. Add 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour, cornstarch, cinnamon, baking soda, salt. Mix on low speed until just incorporated, about 1 minute; don’t overmix. Stir in chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, Heath bits, and butterscotch chips. The dough will be soft and on the oily side, but it should come together and not be sticky, tacky, or wet. If it is, add up to 2 more tablespoons of flour, for a total of 1 cup, and mix to incorporate.
Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a parchment. Place mounds of dough at least 2 inches apart Bake for 8 minutes, or until edges have set and tops are just beginning to set. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing and transferring to a rack to finish cooling.
Package cookies in cute bags with tags.
