I recently was told by a friend that I HAD to try Trader Joe’s Speculoos cookie butter. I was highly intrigued, I figured it was going to be editable, spreadable cookie dough, in which case I was going to die fat and happy. I went to Trader Joe’s as soon as I got off work that day. They had three kids available and I bought two of them! They had original, chunky and cocoa swirl. For $3.95 each I got original and Cocoa swirl.
The label describes the cookie butter as “a deliciously unusual spread” and thats exactly what it is. I love the taste and texture of the cookie butter, but I am kind of at a loss for what to eat it on. I tried it on some cinnamon sugar pita chips and while the combination should have been delicious, it didn’t really work out.
I looked around on the internet a little bit to see what I could find, and I found a lot. Apparently I am way behind the bandwagon on this one. So aside from feeling foolish because you all have probably made your decisions on Cookie butter already, I figured maybe I could bring you something you hadn’t seen by finding a great recipe and a new way to use cookie butter.
This one really speaks to me, I can’t wait to try it. Banana sounds like the perfect ingredient to combine. Click the picture for a link to the recipe and original poster.
For a day when your looking for something quick make some quick cookie butter fondue. Microwave a small amount in a mug and dip slices of banana, apples, graham crackers, marshmallows, and anything else you can think of.
