Last week, I shared a slow cooker Italian meatball soup recipe with you. That was my normal monthly contribution to The Secret Recipe Club. Because of the holidays happening later this month, groups C and D of the SRC won’t be able to participate in their monthly group exchange, so we’ve decided to hold a Secret Recipe Club Cookie Carnival that everyone can participate in!

These cookie butter peppermint chip cookies are adapted from a recipe that is a sweet treat.

This is one of my favorite easy cookie recipes - Cookie Butter Peppermint Chip Cookies

Just like the normal SRC events, we’ve been paired up with another blogger to create a cookie recipe of theirs. I was assigned to create a recipe from Baking and Creating with Avril.  Avril’s Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies stole my heart from the moment I laid my eyes on them. I almost chose the Nutella Drop Cookies, but then I realized that I’ve already made a few Nutella dessert recipes on this site, so I thought I’d try something else.

Besides, with no Nutella in the house, but a jar of cookie butter on the pantry shelf, the fate wins. Oddly enough, I had no chocolate chips, so I added a festive touch to the cookies, using peppermint chips instead. Avril lives in New Hampshire and loves sharing recipes when she’s not busy as a care-giver. Do yourself a favor and visit her site sometime. There are lots of easy-to-make recipes over there!

There’s one thing I forgot to mention about these cookies. It’s sort of important, especially if you have kids in your house. These cookies are known for their attraction to bears. I didn’t realize how much Bears love cookie butter until I put the cookies on wire rack to cool. Before I could do anything about it, Buddy was stalking the kitchen…

    I have never heard of cookie butter but I’ve heard of peanut butter and peppermint chips are perfect for a Christmas Cookie.

      Wendy, this recipe will be PERFECT with peanut butter! I made peanut butter peppermint truffles last year and they were devoured, so I know the flavors will work well for you.

      Thanks, Avril! I saw lots of great recipes on your site, but a lot of them were SRC recipes and I wanted to make one that came from you, not someone else 😉
      These were really delicious cookies!

    I’ve never baked with cookie butter before, or nutella, but really intrigued by the idea of making cookies using cookie butter – inception style cookies!

    Strangely enough, I’ve never heard of cookie butter before. But I must say, your cookies look delightfully festive.

      Cookie butter is becoming more popular, Trisha, so perhaps you’ll see it at your grocery store soon. It’s worth trying at least once (and likely, you’ll love it and want to use it many more times!)

      Thanks, Rebekah… I love my Buddy 🙂
      Girly, if you’ve never had cookie butter, you simply must indulge yourself in a jar of it at least once. It’s like nothing you’ve ever tasted before. SO sinful and delicious!

    Love the peppermint chip addition! I wait all year-long to break out the peppermint everything. I have to admit that I have never tried or heard of that brand of cookie butter. I am a die-hard Biscoff (with occasional bottles of Speculoos in my pantry) fan.
