Speculoos Spread Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes about 4 dozen cookies

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
6 tablespoons (packed) light brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup Speculoos spread
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside

In a stand mixer or with a hand mixer, cream the butter and the sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the egg, then the vanilla, then the Speculoos.

With the mixer on low, add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix just until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Using a tablespoon or small ice cream scoop, drop the dough onto the parchment paper. Bake for 6-8 minutes until the cookies are lightly browned around the edges. The cookies will be puffy when you take them out of the oven, but will deflate as they cool.

Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. If desired, make sandwich cookies by spooning more Speculoos in between two cookies.
