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.

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!
