How to make cookie butter:

This recipe tastes just like Vanilla Wafers.  If you want a different flavor switch up the cake flavors.

Ingredients Needed:

3/4  Cup of Unsalted Butter – room temperature

2 Cups of Stale Cake Crumbs (roughly half a cake)
Cookie Butter - tastes good with pretzels but even better on bagels

Mash the cake and butter together until it is smooth.  You can use a food processor if you want it to be super creamy.  We used a potato masher.  Turned out terrific, was quick to mash and clean-up was a breeze.

Pictured is the butter with pretzels, but it is TERRIFIC on bagels.  Seriously, the best bagel spread you will ever taste!  It’s a birthday party in your mouth!  We have also enjoyed the cookie butter on dry crackers, even pumpernickel bread.

You can gift the cookie butter.  Wrap it into a log using freezer paper.  Store it in the freezer until you need it – pull it out of the freezer the night before you need it.  So tasty!

I would love to see if I can make a girls scout mint-mock-cookie-butter with a dark chocolate cake mix and a couple drops of peppermint oil.  <—  Doesn’t that sound good?!?  If you make that version let me know so I can try it and feature you!
