Dark Chocolate Cookie Butter Cookies

Posted by: Ari Laing

Thick and chewy with soft interiors, these dark chocolate cookie butter cookies are game changers. Their light texture is due to the mix of cookie butter and olive oil, but their salty finish is what takes them over the top. Recommended to serve with an ice cold glass of milk!

  • 1 ⅔ cups Domino® Golden Sugar
  • 1 ½ cups cookie butter divided
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 cups dark or semi-sweet chocolate roughly chopped
  • maldon sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 375F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place 1 ¼ cup of cookie butter in a small microwave safe bowl, then heat on high for 30 - 60 seconds, until melted and smooth.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together Domino® Golden Sugar, melted cookie butter, olive oil, and vanilla bean paste until smooth, about 3 minutes on medium speed.

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, bread flour, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt. Add flour to sugar mixture, then gently fold until only a few streaks of flour remain. Fold in chopped chocolate.

  • Roll dough into 2” round balls, then place on prepared baking sheet leaving at least 2” between cookies. (I bake 9 cookies on a standard baking sheet at one time.) Place in freezer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Bake for 11-12 minutes, or until edges have set and center of cookies have risen, but are still quite soft. Immediately sprinkle each cookie with a few flakes of malden sea salt, then let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet. Carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool further. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.

  • When finished, heat remaining ¼ cup of cookie butter in microwave until melted and smooth, about 30 - 60 seconds. Drizzle on cooled cookies, then serve immediately.
