Now you can eat it straight out of the jar by the spoonful, make Deep Dish Cookies and Cream Cookie Butter Oatmeal Toffee Cookies, or you can do both! We know it’s hard to believe that we did just that! Kidding! Take it from us -RUN, don’t walk, and get yourself a jar!
Deep Dish Cookies and Cream Cookie Butter Oatmeal Toffee Cookies
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup Gold Medal all-purpose flour, plus 2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Crisco, at room temperature
1/2 cup Trader Joe’s Cookies & Cream Cookie Butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup toffee bits
Ice cream, for serving, optional
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease ramekins (6 oz size) with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
3. In a different bowl add the Crisco, cookie butter, sugar, and brown sugar and beat on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla extrat and beat until smooth.
4. Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add the dry ingredients, beating only until blended. Stir in the toffee bits.
5. Take about 1/4 cup cookie dough and press it into a ramekin. Continue with the rest of the dough. Place the ramekins on a large baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center. You want them to be a little under baked. Remove from the oven and cool for 2 minutes. Top the deep dish cookies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and serve warm.
