Cookie Butter



Can you believe it's less than a week until Thanksgiving?

Where has this year gone? Wasn't it just April?

I'm really trying not to think about the fast approaching holidays because I still have so much to do... I haven't gotten a single Christmas present yet. Pure Awesome...

It's OK, this butter makes up for not being Holiday ready. It literally TASTES like the Holidays, all bottled... urm... jarred up!

It whips up really fast too so this is the perfect last minute holiday gift or dessert. Serve with cookies, apples, crackers or on little toasts. People will love it... Trust me!

For the butter:
(slightly adapted from Betty Crocker)

2 (8.8 oz) packages of Biscoff Cookies
2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon molasses
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2-1 cup water


  • In your food processor, pulse the cookies into fine crumbs. Turn off the processor and add in the cinnamon, brown sugar, ground nutmeg and vanilla. Process until combined.
  • With the food processor running, through the spout, stream in the molasses and oil. Allow to mix and the crumbs dampen.
  • Continue running the food processor and slowly stream in the water, you will need anywhere from the amount  listed. You are looking for the consistency of peanut butter.
  • Pour cookie butter into airtight container and place in the fridge. It will thicken a bit.


Enjoy!

  1. Thanks...I love the idea of making this at home and giving as gifts. Mostly because when I buy it, I "forget" to tell the rest of the family and eat it myself...which is not good!
