Spiced Stars with Cookie Butter
Cookie butter—that magical spread that’s nearly impossible to stop eating—is great straight out of the jar, but it’s a hundred times better when sandwiched between two spice cookies. These thin, crisp cookies have a mild spice flavor that allows the cookie butter to shine. The dough is easy to roll out and work with and bakes up beautifully golden in 8 minutes. Be sure to let the cookies cool completely before frosting them so that the cookie butter doesn’t melt and spread. Look for jarred cookie butter (also called speculoos spread) in the peanut butter aisle. It is made from ground spice cookies and is similar in color and texture to peanut butter. If you can’t find it at the store, chocolate hazelnut spread is a delicious substitute.
