Awww… Spreadable cookies. Where have these been my whole life?
Cookie Butter is a must-bring for a game night with pals.

How to make cookie butter:
This recipe tastes just like Vanilla Wafers. If you want a different flavor switch up the cake flavors.
3/4 Cup of Unsalted Butter – room temperature
2 Cups of Stale Cake Crumbs (roughly half a cake)
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!
