finally. my speculoos cookies have fulfilled their destiny. and at last, i understand what the obsession with cookie butter is all about. you guys, this stuff is so good. it’s cookies. that you can spread. onto anything. do you need more convincing? the flavor is super sweet and super intense. it tastes exactly like the cookies, only now you can eat them with a spoon.

i actually went through a couple of recipes before arriving at this one. with the first recipes i tried, the taste was really good, but the texture just wasn’t right. it was either too grainy, or sort of mushy but not spreadable. then i found this recipe that uses coconut milk – success! the final product is perfectly smooth and deliciously creamy. it’s so, so good.

homemade cookie butter
yield: about 1 cup of cookie butter

creamy and delicious. cookies you can spread.
adapted from:
  • 250 grams speculoos cookies (this was about 20 of the cookies i made)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  1. put the cookies in a food processor and grind them to a fine powder. add the brown sugar and pulse the food processor a few times to mix it in. add the rest of the ingredients and let the processor run until everything is combined into a smooth paste. scrape down the sides of the processor if necessary.
  2. store the cookie butter in an airtight container in the fridge. i found that at first, mine was a little too loose/liquidy, but after it chilled in the fridge it was perfect.

    that sounds very good!
    Do I have to use the coconut milk or can I user any kind of milk for that?
    Tanks for quick reply :)

      i would stick with coconut milk – it has quite a different texture from other types of milk. but if you try it with anything else, let me know how it goes. good luck!

      I bet sweetened condensed milk would work. It would just be sweeter but the consistency would probably benefit

    I’ve never heard of cookie butter before but it sounds intriguing ( and good). Can you use other kinds of cookies as well to make it?

      welcome to the cookie butter club :)! yes, you can use other cookies – it would be a lot of fun to use different cookies to play around with different flavors. the one important thing is that the cookies you use be crispy – chewy cookies just won’t give you the right texture.
