Make Cookie Butter at Home with Four Ingredients

Cookie butter is one of the most popular items from US food chain Trader Joe's. But don't book that airline ticket: you can make it at home with just a few ingredients.

Cookie butter has the consistency of peanut butter, but tastes like cinnamon sugar cookie dough. OK, we're sold. If you'd like to make it at home, A Beautiful Mess has the recipe — just blend together:

2 cups cookie crumbs

125gm butter

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

1/4 cup evaporated milk

water as needed

It's ready to eat as soon it's blended. Trader Joe's makes chocolate cookie butter now, but you can make this from any cookies. When I tested it, cookies that were a few days old worked better, so it's also a great way to reuse cookies that are going a little stale. Check out the link for the details on how to make this delicious treat.

      I'd try the one I posted below if I were you. It sounds much nicer than that simple recipe above.

    I'm tryna slim down so I can fit into momma's coffin. This could be mah re-ward.

    Americans seem to make just about anything a snack food (example - cookie dough).

    I read about this stuff on Serious Eats awhile ago though, the actual spread shown is not just from any cookie, it is a famous gingerbread cookie from the Netherlands called Speculoos. A regular cookie in the spread would not be the same.

    Here's the real recipe:

      Can't wait to try that.
      Speculaas are a favourite in our house where they are known as windmill biscuits because - c'mon - how DO you pronounce speculaas.

    Eurgh, sounds awful! My teeth hurt just thinking about it.
