3-Ingredient Cookie Butter Cookies

Cookie butter is a creamy nut-free spread that's usually made from spiced Belgian cookies called speculoos. It's sold in jars in the peanut butter aisle. Here, we mix it with oats and eggs to make possibly the quickest, tastiest and most satisfying three-ingredient cookie ever.
