Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter or Biscoff Cookie Spread Bars

We recently got a Trader Joe's Market. They were the first market to sell a Cookie Butter that originated in The Netherlands. Bischoff is another new Cookie Butter Spread available in the States. I  have recipes on the blog using Biscoff. I am planning to post additional Biscoff recipes on the blog.

Trader Joe's Cookie Butter Bars:
This recipe can also be made with Biscoff Spread.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
1 - 9" X 9" baking pan.

3/4 C Granulated Sugar, divided
1/2 C Brown Sugar
1/2 C Buttered flavored Shortening
1/2 C Speculoos Cookie Butter or Biscoff Spread
1 Egg, beaten
2 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/8 tsp Nutmeg
1 1/2 C Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 C Blackberry Jam (my favorite is Bonne Maman)

In a small mixing bowl:
1/2 C Granulated Sugar
Brown Sugar
Whisk well.

In a Stand Mixer with a Paddle Attachment:
Cookie Butter
Beat until creamy smooth.

Beat just until combined.

In a small mixing bowl:
Baking Soda
Baking Powder
Whisk well and sift together.
Add this to the Sugar mixture.
Continue to beat to create the dough.
Divide the dough in half.

Press half of the dough into the pan.
Spread Jam evenly over the dough.
Spread the remaining dough over the Jam. (I roll it out into a 9" X 9" square and transfer to the pan)
Sprinkle evenly with remaining Granulated Sugar.
Bake for 30 minutes.

Remove to a rack and cool completely.
Cut into squares  and sprinkle with Confectioner's Sugar ro serve.

Peace in the Kitchen!
