Making Crumbl Cookie Butter Lava Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup extra cookie butter for drizzling
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1/2 cup cookie butter
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place 8 dollops (1/2 tablespoon each) of cookie butter (from the 1/4 cup) on it, and freeze them for about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Set your oven to preheat at 350°F. Prepare another large baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper, then set it aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, cookie butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until well combined. Add the egg and vanilla extract, then mix again until smooth.
  4. Incorporate the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt into the wet mixture and mix until combined.

FAQs:

Can I use a different type of butter instead of cookie butter?

While cookie butter provides a unique flavor, you can substitute it with peanut butter or almond butter for a different taste. However, the texture and flavor will vary from the original recipe.

How do I prevent the cookies from spreading too much?

Chilling the dough before baking helps prevent excessive spreading. You can also ensure your baking sheet is at room temperature before placing the dough on it.

What can I use if I don’t have cornstarch?

If you don’t have cornstarch, you can replace it with an equal amount of arrowroot powder or double the amount of all-purpose flour, although the cookies may not be as tender.

How should I store these cookies to keep them fresh?

Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. For longer storage, you can freeze the cookies in an airtight container for up to 2 months.

Can I make the dough ahead of time?

Yes, you can prepare the dough ahead of time and refrigerate it for up to 24 hours. When ready to bake, let the dough sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before shaping and baking.

Is there a way to make these cookies gluten-free?

To make these cookies gluten-free, substitute the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend. Make sure all other ingredients, like cookie butter, are also gluten-free.
