Are you looking for the ultimate spread for snacks? If so, cookie butter is the way to go. More delicious than Nutella, you’ll fall in love with the sweet, creamy spread and find yourself adding it to various snacks. Make your own with this simple cookie butter recipe. The recipe is so easy that you’ll have a batch of cookie butter in five minutes. Let’s get started so you can make this mouthwatering treat today!
Cookie Butter Ingredients
Every great treat begins with the right ingredients. Head to the grocery store to grab the following:
- 8 ounces of gingersnap cookies
- 1/4 cup of heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
- A pinch of salt
While you only need 8 ounces of gingersnap cookies, consider buying some extra. You can spread the cookie butter on the cookies as a snack. That doubles the sweetness and flavor and will satisfy your sweet tooth.
Making the Cookie Butter
After you have the ingredients, you’ll be ready to get to work. Throw the gingersnap cookies in a food processer and grind them up. Then toss in the salt, cinnamon, coconut oil, heavy cream, and vanilla. Turn the food processor back on and run it for two minutes. If the mixture isn’t the desired consistency, put in some additional cream or milk.
You don’t need to buy a food processor if you don’t have one. Instead, you can use a blender in its place. The taste will be the same, but it will have a slightly different texture.
Is it Too Sweet?
If this recipe comes out too sweet, you can leave out the sugar. It will still be sweet, but it will be on the lower end of the sweetness spectrum.

Do You Want it to Last Longer?
If you follow the recipe as written, the cookie butter will last for two weeks in the refrigerator. You can store it for longer if you switch the milk for water. It won’t be quite as creamy, but it will still have the sweet flavor you expect from cookie butter.
Spring is a time of renewal and an excellent time to try new flavors. This recipe is always a hit, and it’s so easy you can knock it out in a matter of minutes. Grab your ingredients and try it out!
