It’s The Little Things: Cookie Butter!

Oh, yes, cookie butter. I wish I had it on camera, the moment I first saw this spectacular creation on a giant display at the store. I think time froze as I reread and reread the label, my mouth gaping open. Drool puddling on the floor. I, of course, grabbed a jar. When you see something with words that you normally associate the other way around (Butter Cookies), you have to grab it.

I got home and immediately opened the jar. I tried it. Oh my goodness! Heaven. I checked the calories. Ninety calories for one tablespoon. Reality.

I knew I would have to eat this with something healthy to not feel like Goldie Hawn in “Death Becomes Her.” Anytime I eat frosting from a can, my husband reminds me of that scene. So, I tried it with apple slices. I love apple slices with peanut butter. Now, I love apples slices with cookie butter. It is better. Trust me.

And because I am a hoarder with OCD, I rushed out the next day and bought another jar. It tastes like condensed thick creamy spice cookies. Amazing!

I made a cookie butter cake. Um, this is what it looked like for a week. Not my finest creation. How could I ruin my cookie butter this way?

Then I made cookie butter oatmeal cookies. Now we’re talking. Do you hear that? It’s the sound of my thighs clapping. Recipe for this to come. You will be oh, so happy.

I have also learned that Trader Joe’s carries cookie butter. There is a rumor on the internet that they only allow the purchase of two jars per customer. Is this true? I have not stalked the shelves here, yet. They also make a chocolate version and a crunchy version. Oh! The choices. The possibilities. The dirty spoons.

It’s the little things: it’s creamed cookies! Creamed cookies! Dreams do come true.

Have you tried this yet? Do you hoard it? I am scared they are going to run out.

    • Hi!

      My brand is Rolland brand. I buy mine at a tiny mom and pops specialty food store near my house (there are only two of them in the country). I would check your local specialty food shops. Call first and see if they carry Rolland products. Amazon sells this brand as well as the Trader Joe’s version, but it is twice the price. So, I would definitely call around first. Sorry to not be of much help there. Please let me know if you find it!

      Have a great Thursday!

    I’m DYING! Jenni, you are hilarious. I am both looking forward to and dreading trying cookie butter. Thigh claps all around!

    • Ha! Thanks Katie! Me and my thighs appreciate it. ; ).

      And cookie butter is so so yummy. Beware! Once you try it, you will be thinking of ways to put it on everything. It is addicting!

      Have a lovely evening! : )

  2. Usually I read your posts first thing in the morning around 5:00 am. Wouldn’t you know it, the one time I didn’t and I was right next door to Trader Joes 15 minutes before reading this. Arg!!!

    • Awww, man! Isn’t that just the way it is? Sorry!

      I might go there tomorrow. I want to try the crunchy kind. And I am so curious to know if they have any and if there is a limit. I will let you know tomorrow. Please let me know if you try this. I cannot believe it is a real thing! : )

      Oh! And H & M has bunny bottom pajamas! They are $19.95, but if you sign up for H & M emails, you get 10% off the day you sign up. But they usually also send you a 20% off one item coupon, too. You could use it on these and they would be $16! I bought a pair for me. I love them!

      Have a terrific night!

  3. Ohhh yes. We’ve had both the original Trader Joe’s cookie butter & the crunchy. The crunchy is seriously 10 times better than the original. And the original is good! I think they also have one swirled with chocolate. Haven’t bought more than one jar at a time. We eat it with apples or banana slices. Also made s’mores with it this fall. Also have melted a bit & poured on ice cream. Yeah, we’ve experimented 🙂 Need to try the cookie recipe!

    • Hi Lyn!

      Oh good, another addict! I am going there tomorrow to shop. I will pick up some crunchy if they have any. Melted over ice cream??!! Oh my gosh! You are a genius! I must try this tomorrow! I will post the cookie recipe next week. Thank you for the yummy ideas!

      I hope your weekend is creative and fun!

      • Your post made me go in & have a spoonful. AND ITS ALMOST GONE!!! My husband has been sneaking some!! Guess its time for a TJ’s run. Have a great weekend!

      • Oh my gosh! You just described my nightmare. Now, I must go check my jars. Maybe I should hide them?! Aaaahhhh! I cannot imagine! : )

        Have a safe shopping trip. I hope they have it! And have a beautiful weekend!

        Jenni

    • Yay! Please let me know what you think! I hope you like it (as if I created it).

      Have a serene evening. Enjoy your cookie butter!
