My friend Rguabbib is bringing me back a special present from her trip to America…. Cookie Butter!
I became obsessed with the idea of Cookie Butter (or Spread) ever since I saw this ultra amazing YouTube video:
After watching the video like sixteen times in a row, I began searching high and low for it in every nearby grocery store.
But I am pretty sure Cookie Butter is not authorized in dumb old Canada. So we had to head down to our lenient neighbours to the South to find such a ridiculous product. I know what she’s bringing me won’t be the exact same cookie spread, but I’m sure it will be pretty darn close.
I am wayyyy too excited for this unhealthy super treat. I can’t wait to taste it and try out different recipes with it.
But what is cookie butter? I’ve never actually had it, but I assume that it is like peanut butter, except made from mushed up cookies instead of mushed up peanuts.
I am in love with peanut butter, almond butter, coconut butter, and nutella. So I am convinced cookie butter will be just as amazing.
I have been spending all my time reading recipes and reviews for Cookie Butter. The recipes are mouthwatering and the reviews are…. annoying.
The majority of the feedback is that the product is absolutely delicious, but then complaints that there is no nutrient value.
Why would anyone think something called COOKIE BUTTER would be nutritious? All it’s going to be is basically a jar of cookies with the addition of extra oil. Yes, a product less healthy than cookies. And people are pissed. I’m not sure why they are so surprised, since I’m pretty sure this company didn’t make any wild claims of beneficial health effects (like nutella does).
Those dumbos and their reviews can suck it. I’m gonna focus on the recipes and ignore the reviews. But what to make with my precious imported Cookie Butter? I’m sure it will be great just smeared on toast, but I think it would be fun to bake with it.
Would it be too weird to make cookies with it? Someone went to all the trouble to make cookies and magically transformed it into cookie butter. And then I will use the Cookie Butter as a butter replacement to make cookies. Isn’t that sort of a waste of everyone’s time? Like feeding cheese to a cow. Or is it like cookie cannibalism? Can cookies even be cannibals?
Ah, screw it. I might just eat the whole jar with a spoon.
