Lotus Butter Cookie Bars

Yields 12 bars | Freezer friendly

INGREDIENTS:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 (13.4-ounce) jar Lotus Biscoff Crunchy Cookie Butter
  • 10 Lotus biscuits, crushed
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 1 (9 x 13-inch) pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, oil, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl to form a dough. The dough should be a little crumbly.
  3. Spread and pat down about ¾ of the dough into prepared pan, saving the remaining dough for the topping. The dough layer should be ¼-inch thick and the dough should be firm.
  4. Transfer Cookie Butter to a microwave-safe bowl; microwave for 30 seconds to soften the butter. Alternatively, open jar, remove foil seal, and microwave right in the jar.
  5. Spread softened Cookie Butter over the dough. Sprinkle the remaining crumbled dough and crushed Lotus biscuits all over the Cookie Butter.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Cool slightly; cut into squares or bars.

Cook’s Tip: If you prefer a creamier texture in your cookies, you can use the Biscoff Smooth Cookie Butter instead.
