Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are in the style of Levain chocolate chip cookies, filled with white chocolate chips, Biscoff cookies and Cookie Butter!
These cookie butter chocolate chip cookies recipe starts out with a copycat recipe for Levain Chocolate Chip Cookies, the ones made in the famous New York Bakery. Then I added lots of cookie butter and Biscoff cookie goodness to make them even better.
I love a good chocolate chip cookie and whenever I visit a new city I hit as many bakeries as I can in search of the best chocolate chip cookies. When I visit my youngest daughter in NYC, I always make at least one trip to Levain Bakery for one of their world famous chocolate chip cookies! I shared a copycat recipe for their Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie a few years ago. It’s one of my favorites. If you have never had Levain chocolate chip cookies, they cookies are big. They weigh in at almost half a pound!
Another favorite chocolate chip cookie of mine is the one made by Chip Cookies in Provo, Utah. They actually deliver warm chocolate chip cookies and cold milk to your door. Each month they feature a specialty cookie. I love to follow their Instagram account to see what their cookie of the month will be. This month it was a Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie. I knew I needed one, but I didn’t have a trip to Provo planned. So, I decided to figure out how to make them at home. And I did!
What is Cookie Butter?
If you aren’t familiar with cookie butter, it is also known as Speculoos Cream. It is named after the spiced shortcrust biscuit from Belgium which gives it the gingerbread flavor with a caramel accent. Cookie Butter is basically a creamed version of this cookie in a jar. It’s a spreadable, spoonable, lickable cookie and it is oh so good! Trader Joe’s carries Speculoos Cookie Butter and you can also find Biscoff Cookie Butter too. In addition to the cookie butter, I crushed up Biscoff or Speculoos Cookies into the dough as welll.
The first thing I had to do was find a recipe for Levain chocolate chip cookies. I found the perfect copy cat recipe over at A Bountiful Kitchen. I had the opportunity to meet Si in Utah earlier this year and she is a delight. Make sure to pay her a visit.
I adapted her recipe by adding in white chocolate chips, broken up Biscoff cookies and a couple teaspoons of cookie butter in the middle of each cookie. They are as delicious as they sound!
How to make Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
I didn’t make my cookies quite as big as the original Levain chocolate chip cookies because, as much as I love a chocolate chip cookie, a half pound is a lot of cookie. I made mine about half that size. Each ball of dough weighed 3 oz., which is still a lot of cookie. But trust me, you’ll be glad they are that big! I divide the ball of dough in half and add 2 two teaspoons of Cookie Butter in the middle.
Then, I added the other half of the dough on top and sealed in the cookie butter.
Next, bake the cookies at 400 degrees F for 8-9 minutes. Do not overbake them! You want them soft and gooey on the inside.
Once they are out of the oven, be sure you have a big glass of cold milk handy to enjoy with these cookie butter chocolate chip cookies. You are going to need it!
