Sugar Cookie Butter

I’ve been pretty quiet on the Christmas cookie front this year.

It’s not because I’m not in the spirit, it’s because last year I feel like I sort of wore myself out on them. If you can remember, I dedicated an entire week to them last year {sidenote: if you just make ONE, make these pecan fingers…they are to die for!}. Anyway, I haven’t done too much Christmas baking this year. I did, however, make sugar cookie butter. Does that count? I think it should.

This sugar cookie butter is a delightfully creamy blend of cashews, banana chips, coconut oil and honey. It’s gluten-free except for when you slather it all over a graham cracker like I did in the photo above. Glorious. I also found it to be a lovely substitute for peanut butter and absolutely divine when smeared on animal crackers.

Oh yeah, it’s good right off the spoon, too.

To make sugar cookie butter, you just combine all your ingredients in the food processor and whirl, whirl, whirl away.

I went heavy on the honey in mine because of my overactive sweet tooth. It’s becoming a problem…don’t tell my dentist.

The “butter” is definitely thicker {firmer?} than other nut butter, in my opinion. It’s actually more like spreading cookie dough on your cookie. Which, if you’re anything like me, is absolutely amazing.

The original recipe for this concoction comes from the talented Rachel. Last week, I remade it for the Tasty Kitchen Blog so you can find the recipe, along with my step-by-step photos there!

What are you waiting for? Spread those Christmas cookies with cookie butter. Everyone’s doing it!

    This might just be better than Christmas cookies! You can’t go wrong with these ingredients, and I love how simple it is to make. Kind of like hummus…. but sweet tooth style!

    I wouldn’t even slather this on anything! It’d be sugar cookie butter, me, and a spoon.

    This could be even more dangerous than almond butter straight from the jar!

    Wow – I’ve never heard of anything like this! Seems like it’s the perfect substitute for eating raw cookie dough out of the bowl (not that I do that – haha)! Thanks for sharing!

    Jenna, just stop. You’re doing terrible things to my waist/caloric intake right now… But if this is wrong, then I never want to be right.
