Speculoos Cookies

NOTE:  I thought this recipe contained no flour, but the Speculoos contains wheat flour, so this is not gluten free

Hello my Sweet Cookie Butter Darlings,

How are you on the glorious Saturday?  I’m going to get right down to it!  I have some good news and some bad news. First the good news, I made this.

The bad news is, I finished this.  Sorry!

Sorry, I ate your Cookie Butter, so I guess the winner of my giveaway is me!  Ha ha!!!   Just kidding, I would never do that to you!!  Lucky for me I have back up Cookie Butter!!  I could never just have one jar on hand and I would never take your jar, unless you said I could.

When I was coming up for a recipe to use the Speculoos Cookie Butter, I wanted to create something that has a full blown Cookie Butter flavor.  I originally thought of making cupcakes or little ball cookies, or a dip, but I really just wanted a traditional cookie.  So I decided on making  Flourless Cookies that do not require a lot of work or ingredients and had to contain a big, fat cup of Cookie Butter!  Yum!

Than the perfect cookie was born!  They are crispy and chewy!  I love that in a cookie!!  The flavor of the Speculoos is amazing!  You get a lot of flavor in this cookie.  If you like the Speculoos Cookie flavor than this cookie is for you!!  If you can’t get Speculoos Cookie Butter or maybe, I don’t know how, but maybe you don’t like the flavor, than you could sub peanut butter for the Cookie Butter.  I plan on making this same recipe using one of my homemade nut butters.  I bet it will be good!!

I told my Husband that I made cookies and to try one.  He looked at them and said oh there peanut butter, you know in that disappointed tone.  First thought than ran through my head is, what’s wrong with peanut butter?  I think he is just jealous because he knows I have a secret love for peanut butter.  But I told him, uh uh, just try one.  He did, and then he ate another.  Than he asked, “Can I take these to work with me tomorrow?”  I guess the man likes Speculoos Cookie Butter.  Hmmm, I’m surprised.  So I packed up a bag for him to take to work!  Than I froze the other bag.  I can’t let him take all of my goodies!!  Hope he doesn’t find the other bag.

  6. Thank you Jennifer, you are so sweet ……. and so are these cookies, YUM! I love speculoos!

  7. You’re welcome :) I had a hard time picking too, there are so many people I admire in the food blog world.

  8. These sound awesome. I was just looking at that cookie butter when I was at Trader Joe’s the other day. I wasn’t quite sure what it was all about. After reading this post, I could kick myself for not buying a jar.

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      The Cookie Butter seems to be all the rage! I have seen so many blogs about it!

  12. Thank you for including me! Hope you had a great weekend!!

  13. Kathleen says:

    I have been trying to find more gluten-free or flourless recipes for my son. I was hoping to make these cookies for him – he would LOVE them! But it looks like the Speculoos cookie butter has wheat in it – the 1st ingredient? Do you know of a gluten-free version of the speculoos? These sound very tasty!

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      You can make these cookies, just use your favorite peanut butter!! Thats what I plan on doing next. Hmmm, I never looked at the ingredients, when I pick up another jar, I’ll have to look.

      • Kathleen says:

        I’ll have to give peanut butter a try. Thanks for the suggestion! I wonder if Nutella would work…

  14. Haha, I love that you made ground up cookies back into cookies :) Speculoos (Spekulatius in German) are Christmas for me. Yours look delicious!

  15. I’ve not yet found GF Speculoos anywhere! And the TJ brand is NOT gluten free :( But have you tried their GF crispy chocolate cookies yet? They are great!

  16. Thank you so much Jennifer, you are always so sweet and supportive!! I will post it on my blog when I can narrow down the list of deserving bloggers to 15…there are so many amazing ones out there!!

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      You deserve it! I love your blog!! You guys are funny and your meals and treats look out of this world!!

  17. yay thanks for the award!! ill have to fill mine out as soon as possible!! btw, those cookies look awesome. ive heard of that cookie butter and should definitely look for it when i go to phoenix next week-no tj’s here! :(

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      Ahhhhh! No TJ’s! We bought our house in it’s location because there was a TJ’s near buy. How sad is that? lol

  18. Cindy Dunn says:

    Thanks for the recipe!!! Last time I looked for cookie butter my store was out. These cookies have my stomach growling. I think I’m going to go check to see if they have restocked my store tomorrow. I can’t wait to explore the rest of your blog!

  19. Joscelyn says:

    I just made these and to my dismay they were not very good at all. I followed the recipe and even double checked it to make sure I didn’t leave anything out. My cookies came out extremely flat and crumbly. I mean they were like paper thin… and to be honest I wasn’t even a huge fan of the taste, despite the fact that I’m in love with cookie butter itself.

    • Hi Joscelyn, I understand about the cookies. When I made these, I used the Cookie Butter when it first came out, back in 2011. Than I made it again, when the Cookie Butter was back in stock, and they turned out flat like yours. I gave them to my Husband to take to work and his co-workers liked them,but I didn’t. I’m very disappointed in the cookies to and I am going to take the cookies off my blog. I really don’t understand what happened to them? This is the exact recipe I used before and they turned out great, did it again and they turned out flat. I’m so sorry for this!!
