What is Cookie Butter?
If you’ve never had cookie butter, then you’re missing out! It’s basically like peanut butter or any other spread, but it’s made with fine bits of cookie. Yum!
I consider it (especially this cookies and cream butter) like Nutella. It’s creamy, sweet, delicious, and easy to spread onto breads, but also works as a dip.
You don’t need much to make this cookies and cream cookie butter!
- Oreos – It wouldn’t be cookies and cream without these!
- Heavy Cream
- Vegetable Oil
- Unsalted Butter
- Vegetable Shortening
- Powdered Sugar
- Vanilla Extract
How to Make Cookies and Cream Cookie Butter
Check the recipe card below for the full instructions. Here’s a quick overview of the cookie butter recipe.
- Chop/crush up the Oreos then mix with heavy cream and oil until it becomes a batter.
- Beat butter and shortening, then add in sugar and vanilla and combine until creamy.
- Place each mixture (the cookie side and then the cream side) into a jar or bowl.
Store it in the refrigerator for up to a week!
What to Eat with Cookie Butter
I absolutely love serving this cookie butter with graham crackers. The sweetness matches the flavor perfectly. Everyone in the room will devour it (so keep it hidden if you want it all for yourself). I’m not opposed to eating it by the spoonful either.
But you could also serve it with cookies (yes, more cookies!), or mix a spoonful into your bowl of ice cream. But don’t feel limited with this stuff. Try it on everything! Waffles and pancakes, fruit, toast, pretzels, churros, brownies. So much to try!
Make this cookie butter ASAP and get to dipping. You won’t regret making it because it’s so easy and delicious. Yum!

Yummy recipes and easy to follow…????????
I made this the other day, and while it was good, I knew there was something missing!
Today I made another batch. This time I used coconut oil instead of vegetable. If you do not like coconut, do not try this. What I was really dying to try was this… I blended chocolate hazelnut spread (store brand, nothing fancy) into the cookie part. OMG! That was it! The missing piece. I added about 1/4 cup, but you can do by spoonfuls to taste.
TJ’S does use a chocolate hazelnut in theirs.
Thank you for this recipe. It is a life saver since they have now discontinued this item at TJs.
Sounds Yummy! I love cookie butter and oreos!
Thanks Diane! Hope you love it!
Who needs a cookie to dip when you have a spoon…a Big one!! Thanks for sharing!! PS Wish I hadn’t missed the giveaway!
I totally agree. Can’t get a quite big enough spoon :)
Cookie butter?? This is beyond creative. I just made salted caramel sauce yesterday. I wish I’d made this instead! (I can’t have both in the house. Because then I’d turn INTO a house!). Just dropped you an email to say HI!!
Salted Caramel is my absolute fave!! Your site is beyond gorgeous, can’t wait to connect!
This cookie butter sounds amazing! I might have to make this for dessert tonight!
Hope you love it Shelby!
I have desperately been wanting a blendtec, but we just can’t justify the price on one income.
Homemade nut butter!
I would make a smoothie.
