What is cookie butter ?

Cream Butter and Sugars :

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together 1/2 cup of cold, cubed unsalted butter, 1/2 cup of creamy cookie butter (such as Lotus Biscoff), 3/4 cup of packed brown sugar, and 1/4 cup of granulated sugar on medium speed until combined, about 2-3 minutes.

Add Wet Ingredients :

Add 1 large egg, 1 large egg yolk, 1 tablespoon of cookie butter emulsion, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the butter-sugar mixture. Mix until well combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Incorporate Dry Ingredients :

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Add Mix-Ins :

Fold in 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips and the crushed pieces of 10 Biscoff cookies until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
