Easy one-bowl Cookie Butter Cookies are made with brown sugar, cookie butter, and an egg yolk for a soft and chewy texture. You only need 10 simple ingredients to make these cookies that can be prepped in 10 minutes (no mixer needed!).


  • 210 g (1 1/2 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 170 g (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, melted
  • 110 g (1/2 cup) light brown sugar
  • 110 g (1/2 cup) granulated sugar
  • 140 g (1/2 cup) cookie butter spread
  • 1 large egg + 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 113 g (4 oz) semisweet chocolate, chopped


  1. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, both sugars, and cookie butter until smooth. Add the egg, yolk, and vanilla and whisk to combine.
  2. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and gently fold until combined.
  3. Fold in the chopped chocolate just until mixed.
  4. Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F/177°C. Line two baking sheet pans with parchment paper.
  6. Remove the cookie dough from the refrigerator and allow to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  7. With a cookie scoop, scoop out chilled cookie dough onto prepared baking sheet pans, allowing 3 inches between each cookie to account for spreading.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies just begin to lightly brown.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool in the hot pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.


Make-Ahead:  You can make the cookie dough up to 3 days in advance and keep it covered in the refrigerator.
