Does anyone have one? My dd loves it. I have been searching for a recipe? I buy it at Trader Joes, but I would like to make it myself. She loves it on apples. Thanks

      We had that once after trying a free sample at Trader Joe's and I refuse to bring it in to the house again, it's delicious and  addictive ! Also extremely bad for you, I had it on a paper plate and you could see a huge grease spot where it sat.

      I buy it for my dd, once in a long while because it so bad for you. She eats it with apple slices. My kids rarely get junk food, but, I allow treats. However, I was looking for a healthier way to make it. Thank you for the recipe:) I did find one made with organic coconut oil;) Abd couple other simple ingredients. Way less fat , less sugar.. Still yummy;)

      Spiced Cookie Butter Recipe

      Spiced Cookie Butter
      Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: Makes: About 1 1/2 cups

      When handed a sample of Biscoff cookie spread at a trade show a couple of years ago, I was skeptical at how a spread made of ground-up cookies would taste. I ended UP being addicted to the creamy European export, and now easy-to-find domestic versions are popping up at Trader Joe’s and even in drugstores! CHOW’s version is made with graham crackers, powdered and brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, all ground together in a food processor. To get the texture even smoother, the mixture is ground again in a spice grinder until powdery. Finally, oil is added until you have a smooth cookie butter that’s delicious spread on toast or used as a dip for apples or pretzels.

      Special equipment: You’ll need both a food processor and a spice grinder for this recipe.

      INGREDIENTS
      • 15 (4-3/4-by-2-1/2-inch) whole graham crackers (about 8 ounces)
      • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
      • 2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
      • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
      • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
      • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
      INSTRUCTIONS
      1. Break the graham crackers into rough 2-inch pieces and place them in a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. Add the powdered sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Process until finely ground, about 1 minute. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl and reserve the food processor (no need to wash it).
      2. Working in batches, grind the cracker mixture in a spice grinder until very fine. Return the powder to the food processor.
      3. With the motor running, slowly add the oil in a steady stream, stopping and scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary, until the mixture is smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer to a container with a tightfitting lid and store at room temperature for up to 1 month. If the mixture separates, stir to recombine before serving.

      How To Make Homemade Speculoos Cookie Butter

             
             

      Imagine that peanut butter and Biscoff cookies had a baby. That's Speculoos.

      This Belgian cookie spread was invented in 2007 when the winner of the Belgian prime time TV show "De Bedenkers" concocted it, according to the Lotus Bakeries web site. It's made with 57% percent Biscoff cookies. For Nutella lovers, let us warn you: this might be even better. The lower sugar content allows you to down spoonful after spoonful without wanting to die. The spices are comforting. It's also preservative-free and vegan to boot.

      Speculoos is starting to invade American stores. For those who haven't had the fortune of traveling to Belgium to experience it, or have friends who have and brought it back to you (this is how we found out about it), this is great news. We recently found it at the new flagship Walgreens store on State Street, but before that, had some trouble. Trader Joe's made their own variety during the holidays, but then we couldn't find it anywhere once they stopped. So naturally, we decided to make our own. The verdict? Awesome.

      Someone figured out how to make cookies taste even better than their regular form, and we'd like to thank them for that. Think of it as a big handful of cookie crumbs, but creamier. Put it on pancakes or waffles, eat it plain, or bake with it.

      Speculoos Cookie Butter Recipe

      Ingredients:
      3/4 sleeve Biscoff cookies (about 24 cookies)
      1 Tablespoon sugar
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1/4 cup) coconut oil
      a pinch of salt
      1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
      2 teaspoons canola oil
      1 Tablespoon skim milk

      Directions:

      Grind the cookies into a fine meal using a food processor.

      Melt the coconut fat and let cool down until luke warm. Add coconut oil to the cookie meal and process until combined. Then add sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, canola oil and milk. Process until combined, scraping the sides as needed. This could take up to 5 minutes, but stop whenever you reach your desired consistency. Play around with the oil or milk amounts if you still want it creamier.

      This spread will harden in the fridge and it is best to let it stand 30 min at room temperature when serving.
