I’ve really been enjoying the Cookies ‘n Cream Almond Butter Spread I made a few weeks ago. It isn’t the typical nut butter consistency so really the easiest way to eat it is on a spoon. I have no problem with that!
But since it is more of a dessert spread, I thought it deserved to be incorporated into an actual dessert! Chocolaty cookies perhaps? I used the basics of my favorite chewy chocolate cookie recipe and used the thumbprint method to top the cookies off with the cookie spread filling. There are also white chocolate chips in the batter to compliment the cookies ‘n cream and add some extra texture.
Don’t worry if they are a little crumbly as you are setting them up, just tightly pack the filling and they will bake together nicely!
