Let's journey back to last summer - every week a wedding or bridal or baby shower. Between my friends (and clients), there was barely a free weekend. My favorite of all the showers to plan was that of my friend  - Posh. She asked me to create a dessert table worthy of her "touch of mint" themed bridal shower. 

The menu was surprisingly hard to put together. There were so many recipe ideas and I had a difficult time narrowing it down.   Several weeks of planning and multiple idea boards scrapped , I ended up with a menu perfect for the occasion. This cookie butter recipe was at the top of the list.  

The idea for these brownies was inspired by this  almond butter brownie from the show Tia Mowry at Home. She made brownies with almond butter and prunes. There were a few other items in there, I did not quite care for, so I substituted for some of my favorite ingreidients. Here is my version of her recipe (but with cookie butter and a few other of my favorites).

Slightly adapted from this almond butter brownie recipe
