Hi Bold Bakers!

During the Holidays, do you have tons of cookies in your house like me? Sometimes too many to even eat, so I’m going to show you an awesome ways to turn them into Homemade Cookie Butters.

Homemade Cookie Butters only take 5 minutes to make AND you need just 3 ingredients – Cookies, Butter and Evaporated Milk. Blend those ingredients all together and what you are left with is a smooth cookie spread that can be used in a multitude of desserts, or just eaten straight off the spoon.

I never do things by halves, and my baking is no exception. That is why I made 3 Homemade Cookie Butters: Nutter Butter, Oreo and Shortbread.

The beauty of cookie butter is that you can get really creative and use it in so many different desserts: cheesecake, milkshakes, fudge, sundaes and so on.

I’m going to a  show you one Big & Bold recipe you can make with with each cookie butter.

I adapted this recipe from one of my favorite blogs A Beautiful Mess. I came across her Cookie Butter on Pinterest and the photo alone was enough to sell me on the idea.

This Homemade Shortbread Cookie Butter isn’t short of anything. As much butter is packed in there as possible, which is what makes it so delicious. I used this cookie butter as the base for a Shortbread Mug Cake that can be cooked in 1 minute.

Hey! Made your cookie butter and oh my its amazing! I used triple choc cookies and its the best thing I have ever put on ice cream! Question is, once it’s jarred up, it is safe to reheat if wanted warm on ice cream another time?

Thanks
Lisa

Made Nutter Butter style for my roomie’s Dad for Christmas…he absolutely went bonkers for it and got protective over it around the grand kids, lmao. Made some homemade Oreo’s n made them into cookie butter and then dark chocolate truffles and OMG YUMMMMMMMMYYYY, lol also use part of the Oreo batch of cookies (with cream cheese cream filling) and chocolate dipped them then crunched them up and made some of your 2 ingredient awesome ice cream. I call it “Come to the Dark side” (cookies included) Thanks for all the awesome time n recipe’s. You are more awesome then you… Read more »

Hi Gemma, these recipes sound lovely, thank you! Just a quick question regarding the storage: It says up to 6 weeks in the fridge. Given that it includes evaporated milk, will it not go bad sooner than that?

Hey Gemma, been following you for years. Great recipes and an even greater attitude!

I’ve made your recipe for cookie butters before, and the results were good. Nevertheless, is there anyway to make the end result creamy at room temperature? Would adding vegetable oil help?

I made this recipe with lotus biscoff cookies to make a biscoff spread, and it turned out really well! It blended really well, and I ended up with silky and delicious cookie butter! I would definitely recommend it, as it was easy to make, and tasted delicious.

This was delicious! I used a mix of ginger/shortbread cookies & Graham crackers!! But I added a little sweetened condensed milk because the shortbread was pretty bland🤷‍♀️ (my bad for the cookie choice) but after I “fixed” it, it was so good!!! 5/5

Hiya Gemma,

Hiii can we replace evaporated milk with condensed milk as I think if I replace it with regular milk it will turn out less sweet 😕
If yes then what should the quantity be as condensed milk is wayy sweeter than evaporated milk
Or should I leave in the Oreo cookie filling and use regular milk? Which one do you think will turn out better. Hope to get a response soon x

Can we use home made butter instead of buying from the shop? As we usually make butter at home from cream.
