Make Your Own Homemade Cookie Butter

Cookie butter is a magical thing.

If you've never heard of it, you're most certainly missing out on a delicious, spreadable treat. You can use it as a dip for anything from pretzels to apple slices because basically everything tastes better dipped in cookies.

I created a cookie butter board to show off all of my favorite cookie butter flavors made from different cookies and the controversy it created on Instagram was surprising to say the least.


I get it, butter boards are kinda gross. As pretty as they are undisturbed, they get messy and ugly in one swipe and they honestly seem a little unsanitary with people using their hands to indulge. Plus they seem to inspire double dipping in a way I'm just not personally comfortable with.


That said, I also see the visual appeal and, when I created this creamy cookie butter board with its beautiful ombre coloring, I couldn't help but share my take on this trend with the addition of tiny forks and spoons for smearing. Keep your hands to yourselves, please.


If you just find the butter board trend entirely appalling, I won't fault you for serving the cookie butter in a mini mason jar instead. They're just as tasty, no matter what receptacle you serve them from.


They make for a fun holiday party dessert and can even make for a great DIY holiday gift idea.


I encourage you to make each homemade cookie butter recipe, there's really no reason to choose only one!
