Cookie butter is a versatile biscuit spread or paste that we can use to make a wide range of delicious desserts, snacks, and sweet treats.
Primarily made from speculoos cookie crumbs, fat, sugar, and flour, the ingredients are mixed together until the mixture becomes a thick spread.
We can then use this spread to satisfy our sweet tooth. This spread is most commonly spread on a sandwich, used to make a delicious cheesecake, mixed into a cookie recipe, or used as an alternative to chocolate spread and nut butter.
Aside from its delicious flavor and smooth texture, a great thing about cookie butter is how easy it is to make. So much so, we’re going to show you the best cookie butter recipes you can try today in this post.
