My world has been forever changed – when it comes to sweets that is. The kinds folks at Sprouts (#blessthem) sent me a jar of heavenly goodness to try out. It doesn’t even contain chocolate! Maybe I am late to the party, and everyone has been spooning mouthfuls of this stuff for awhile, but better late than never right? Yes, I’m talking about COOKIE BUTTER! (As if you couldn’t tell from the title of this post….)
Oh.My.Word. Where has this stuff been hiding? If you’re like me and you’ve never tried it before – head over to your closest Sprouts (they just opened a new location in Morningside), and pick up a jar – or maybe 10 (there could be a run on cookie butter, better to be safe than sorry!). The only way I can think to describe it is like biscoff cookies and peanut butter on crack. It spreads on like peanut butter, but tastes like the sweet and cinnamon cookies I very much look forward to on every Delta flight! It is also incredible addicting. I had to tell myself over and over to put.the.spoon.down. as I was “taste-testing” and scouring pinterest for the best cookie butter recipes.
So, what does one make with cookie butter? I would be totally fine with just eating it out of the jar, but thought it would be fun to bake with the stuff! Buzzfeed has a simply drool-worthy list of the 21 best cookie butter recipes, so that seemed like a good place to start. As my first attempt at baking with cookie butter I decided to keep things pretty simple and went with a simple cookie recipe. So what if I didn’t follow the directions exactly and so what if my cookies didn’t look exactly like hers. They tasted darn good, so I’m sharing the recipe with you guys!
What are your favorite cookie butter recipes?! Please do share!
