This is the first year that I participated in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap which helped raise $13,778.40 for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. It was fun to connect with other bloggers, send and receive cookies and especially being able to contribute to a great cause.
I sent a dozen of these cookies to Karla of The Pie Less Traveled, Mary Ellen of Recipes, Food and Cooking and to Meriem of Culinary Couture. I hope they enjoyed these delicate chocolate chip cookie butter cookies and that it made it there in one piece. The cookies are 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.
