I have developed an allergy to peanuts late in life. So unfair! Peanut butter was a staple in my life, I miss it so. So I am on a quest to find recipes that use alternatives to peanut butter so I can still enjoy some of my favorite things, without the side effects. I recently discovered Trader Joe's Cookie Butter. I bought all 3 varieties to try as a substitute for peanut butter. You can use any of them in this recipe, if you use the creamy or crunchy, the cookie dough will look more like a traditional chocolate chip cookie. Take the time to brown the butter in these! Worth it!

Yum, these chocolate chip cookies are sooo good. We are in LOVE with cookie butter. The browned butter is a nice touch and adds tons of flavor. The cookie's rich and buttery with big chunks of chocolate... a heavenly cookie. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
