Serves: 20-25 pieces
Freezer Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Cooling Time: 10-20 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
- 3/4 cup Butter flavored Crisco (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup Powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon Almond extract
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1 3/4 cup Flour
- 1 jar Cookie Butter
- 2 10oz bags of Endangered Species Chocolate Premium Oat Milk Baking Chips 55% Cocoa
- Small package of Raspberries
- In a mixer on a low setting, combine Butter-flavored Crisco and Powdered Sugar until creamy.
- Fold in Almond Extract and Salt, then add the Flour slowly. The texture should be slightly sticky but still crumbly. Just enough to form into a ball by hand.
- Place the dough on plastic wrap and form into a small rectangle. About 1 inch tall, 6 inches long, and 3 inches wide. Cover the dough completely with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for one hour.
- After one hour remove dough and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Cut the dough like a loaf of bread into 1/4 inch bars~ about 20-25 pieces.
- Place cookies on a nonstick baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes. Watch your cookies close, you don’t want them to get brown on top. They will be overcooked. Just a slight hardening on the bottom of the cookie is perfect!
- Once removed from the oven, let the cookies cool on a wire rack for 10-20 minutes.
- Gently smear enough cookie butter to completely cover the top of each cookie.
- Bring a small amount of water to a boil. Place a glass or metal bowl on top of the pot and empty the bags of Endangered Species Chocolate Premium Oat Milk Baking Chips 55% Cocoa into the glass/metal bowl. This allows the steam to warm and melt your chocolate without burning it. Remember to stir the chocolate often.
- Dip/coat the cookie in chocolate then return to a wire rack to drain any excess chocolate (if there could ever be such a thing as excess chocolate!).
- Place the wire rack with cookies in the freezer to cool.
- After the cookies are cooled, store them in a container and freeze until they are ready to be served.
- Serve Chocolate Cookie Butter Crunch cookies with raspberries and powdered sugar sprinkled on top for a perfect combination of sweet, salty, rich, and tart.
