The school bells rings in less than a week. We’d better take our after-school snack game up a notch! One of our Loaded Oatmeal Cookie Butter Blossoms will definitely not be enough to feed our hungry students. Better make a double batch, ummm make it a triple! We hope you a wonderful start this school year!
Oatmeal Cookie Butter Cookies Recipe
Add a Caramel Kiss to the center of each cooled cookie.
We used to hate it when we’d ask our mom what we were having for dinner and she would reply, “Whatever you can find.” We renamed this dinner WYCF. And wouldn’t you know it -we still have it, but this time were the moms saying it! We’re applying this approach to our treat this week, except there’s no dislike involved. Our baking kitchens are full of all kinds of goodies and nothing is off limits. We’re loving every bite of our WYCF Brownie Parfaits!
Bake 1 box of brownies according to directions on the back of the box. Once cool slice into bite size squares.
Layer baked brownies with your favorite toppings in a jar and eat up! Yum!

We know it’s January, so it’s kind of unfair to complain about the cold. Lucky for us there are always a few warmer days sprinkled in between the chilly ones to make them more bearable. Today is one of those much needed days. No need to warm up with a hot cup of cocoa. We’ll bake Hot Cocoa Cookies instead! With sea salt caramel chips and Hot Cocoa M&Ms they become the tastiest way to enjoy these long winter days!
- 1 cup butter flavored Crisco
- 1 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons almond milk
- 3 1/4 cups flour
- 4 packages hot cocoa mix- NOT SUGAR FREE VERSIONS
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup sea salt caramel chips
- 1 cup Hot Cocoa M&Ms
Beat Crisco and sugars in large bowl with standing mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg whites and vanilla; mix well.
In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients. Gradually beat dry ingredients into butter mixture until blended. Stir in caramel chips and M&Ms. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drop 2 tablespoons dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets lined with silicone baking mats or parchment paper. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes; remove to wire racks and cool.
Do you agree that the desserts are the best part of Thanksgiving? You’re crazy if you don’t! We love them so much that we bought extra ingredients in case we needed more goodies to add to the table. Our Pecan Pie Brownies, Apple Pie, and Salted Caramel Brownies were a hit. But lucky for us we have all the supplies for Sea Salt Cookie Butter Cookies leftover to continue the sugar high right through the weekend! Plus these cookies are definitely Santa-worthy and ones to include on holiday baking menu! We hope you had the sweetest Turkey Day ever!
- 1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco
- 1/2 cup Cookie Butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg white
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Sea Salt
- 1/2 Heath Bits
- 1/2 Butterscotch
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Add Crisco and Cookie Butter to bowl of electric mixer and beat on low speed until creamy. Beat in brown sugar, add egg white and vanilla, mixing until combined. Add flour, oats and baking soda, mix on low speed until combined, then raise speed to medium and beat for about 2 minutes.
