You know those prepared cookie dough tubs kids sell in the winter – just like the wrapping paper catalogs we all whored out as kids? Well, a couple neighborhood kids came by last year, peddling their wares and I got sucked in. I bought one tub of snickerdoodle cookie dough. They weren’t sure when the cookies were coming in, but they would gladly take my money. But I went with it since they had a catalog and legit order form. A few weeks later the cookie dough arrived…and then it sat in my fridge for a few weeks. Snickerdoodle dough is just about the only cookie dough I’m not inclined to eat raw with a spoon.
That same year I made these SUPER yummy cookies from Two Peas and Their Pod. They were Christmas drop cookies with pretzels and chocolate chips mixed in. Inspiration hit and I started grabbing fun cookie add-ins from my pantry. Since snickerdoodles have that whole cinnamon and caramelized sugar taste going on, I figured the rich flavor of the cookie would be a great pairing. And I was right! These cookie butter snickerdoodles are the perfect balance of sweet, salty, crispy, and chewy. A cookie lover’s dream!

What is cookie butter spread?
Julie Espy says
Hi Deb. Cookie butter is a sweet spread that’s sold at some grocery stores and Trader Joe’s. TJ’s has their own cookie butter brand. Otherwise, I buy Biscoff spread. Hope this helps!
I am planning on making these today, as I was reading through the recipe, I noticed you do not have the 1 1/2 sugar listed in the ingredient list that is creamed with the butter. Just want to make sure you were aware of it. These look very tasty and can’t wait to try them!
