Last month we started a new series called Game Changers. These are just little, inexpensive things we think will make your life better in multiple ways. Last month was a vegetable spiralizer, this month Trader Joe's Cookie Butter. You never know what you'll get with a game changer!
What is Cookie Butter? We thought you'd never ask!
We went straight to the horse's mouth and will let Trader Joe's describe it for you:
"Cookie Butter is, in the most simplistic terms, spreadable Speculoos cookies. Speculoos cookies are classic Belgian cookies with great crunch, and a slightly caramelized, almost-but-not-quite-gingerbread flavor. After the cookies are baked to a fabulous finish, they're crushed and mixed with vegetable oils and turned into a spread. It resembles peanut butter in color and spreadability. The original Speculoos Cookie Butter is supremely smooth; Crunchy Cookie Butter is slightly crunchy, yet still supremely spreadable - kind of like the difference between creamy and crunchy peanut butter."
Cookie Butter is a sweet treat and enjoyed in small doses. This spread is like a taste of Christmas morning at your grandma's house. The possibilities are endless when it comes to Cookie Butter but we'll give you a few ideas to get you started.
- Apple Dip
- Pretzel Dip
- Waffle or Pancake Spread
- Toast or Bagel Spread
- Melt Over Ice Cream
- Mix in Oatmeal
- Blend with Protein Shake
- Dip for a Spoon
(no judgment here!)
Next time you pass by a Trader Joe's stop by to pick up a jar of this goodness for less than $4.
Don't say we didn't warn you, you'll definitely be back for more!
