Cookie Butter

I confess that I typically eat Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter straight out of the jar with a spoon. As they say in the FAQ: “Really no redeeming value nutritionally BUT it does taste oh so good!”

Sometimes, however, I will mash it up with slightly over ripe bananas for a late night snack.

I’ve also found a Cookie Butter Buttercream frosting that I can’t wait to try:

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup Creamy Cookie Butter Spread
3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
2-3 tablespoons milk

 

To make the frosting, beat together the butter and the cookie butter; gradually add the confectioners’ sugar and mix at low speed until combined. To achieve the desired consistency, gradually add milk to thin frosting. Or, if the consistency is too thin, gradually add small amounts confectioners’ sugar to thicken. Spread frosting onto cooled cupcakes as desired.
