Chocolate Chip Cookie Butter Cookies

Delicate chocolate chip cookie butter cookies made with Trader Joes' Speculoos Cookie Butter and laced with chocolate chips and coarse sea salt. If you haven't had cookie butter you are missing out on something wonderfully decadent. Imagine spreading a layer of creamy spread made from gingerbread cookies and crushed biscuits onto a warm piece of toast. Actually, you don't even need the toast it's great straight out of the jar! The cookie butter has hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger and cardamom. It's warm, cozy and very addicting.
