Cookie butter. Even looking at those two words next to each other feels scandalously indulgent. If you’re a frequenter of the Trader Joe’s grocery chain, you’ve most likely snuck a jar into your cart occasionally. (Or maybe more than so occasionally…) Or maybe you’ve indulged in our new favorite, cookie butter ice cream.
But what if we told you there was a way to make your own homemade cookie butter? And better yet: An easy, no-cooking-required way to make homemade cookie butter? Yeah, that’s what we thought.
For this dangerously easy recipe, you need only three ingredients — cookies, vegetable oil, and powdered sugar — as well as three kitchen tools: a blender, plastic bag, and jar.
To start, pour your cookies of choice into a large Ziploc bag (any cookies you want — the sky’s the limit!) and crush them with your fists. Think whack-a-mole, except with cookies.
Pour the cookie crumbles into a blender and mix in ½ cup of vegetable oil and a little water before blending, adding additional water and blending again, if necessary.
Then, mix in your powdered sugar, a couple of tablespoons at a time, before giving the entire mixture a final blend.
By now, your cookie butter should be smooth enough to pour into a glass jar. Cap it and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
