bar plateAre you familiar with cookie butter? It’s quite brilliant actually.

It is similar to peanut butter which is peanuts that have been ground up until becoming butter. Cookie butter is cookies that have been ground up until becoming butter. So you use ground up cookies in your cookies or bars or on a piece of toast or even just on a spoon. Sounds good, huh?

It is.

Biscoff cookie butter is sold in jars in crunchy or creamy, similar to peanut butter, and it is found at the store with the peanut butter andBiscoff jelly, usually on the top shelf at my store. Trader Joe’s also sells their own version which is simply called “Cookie Butter.” I have never used the Trader Joe’s version before because I was aware of Biscoff cookie butter before we ever had a Trader Joe’s in Colorado Springs. I would guess that it would work the same, but I do not know for sure.

I have been making these blondies for a few years, and they are always a hit and often a new experience for people. Though it has become more popular in recent years, many people have still never heard of Biscoff or cookie butter. The white chocolate is lovely paired with the Biscoff spice. The blondies have a slightly crisp exterior and a soft interior.

As with peanut butter, there are cookie butter cookies, pies, cakes, and desserts. I tried a Biscoff oatmeal cookie recipe around Christmas for the first time, and it was a smash hit immediately. I want to try it a few more times before I share it here. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these Biscoff blondies.
