Cookie Butter. Have you tried it? I had never even heard of it until The Cocoa Exchange released their Cookie Bar Collection, which is basically milk chocolate and cookie butter. So I had to find out exactly what Cookie Butter is!
According to Wikipedia, cookie butter was inventied in 2007 in Belgium. The goal was to make a spreadable product out of Speculoos cookies. Now, if you are like me, you are wondering "What are Speculoos?" In America, we know these cookies better as "Biscoff". It's basically a thin, crunchy, spiced cookie. It's a common Christmas cookie in Germany and Austria.
Cookie Butter is somewhat like Peanut Butter or Apple Butter in that it's a spreadable form of the food. Basically, cookie butter is crushed Speculoos cookies combined with fat (butter or oil) and sugar to make a creamy, spreadable substance. Cookie Butter is similar to peanut butter in color and texture. It's available in creamy and crunchy varieties. It is more commonly compared to Nutella, probably because of the dessert like nature of the spread. While more common in Europe, cookie butter has recently made appearances in America.
