WHAT IS COOKIE BUTTER?
Are you asking yourself, "what is cookie butter"? It's one of those ingredients that I find absolutely addicting!! Cookie butter is a European spread with a consistency like peanut butter, but it is made with spice cookies, called Biscoff or Speculoos. The flavor is reminiscent of a subtle gingerbread with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. You can use it as an alternative to nut butters or chocolate spreads. Cookie butter is also nut free, so it's an option for those with nut allergies.
WHERE DO YOU BUY COOKIE BUTTER?
Many retailers carry Lotus Biscoff spread. I usually buy it at Target, but Walmart and Kroger also carry it. Cookie butter can be found in the bakery section or near the peanut butter. It is also available on Amazon.com.
Trader Joe's carries their brand, Speculoos Cookie Butter, and it is found with the peanut butter.
HOW TO MAKE COOKIE BUTTER FROSTING
First, beat together room temperature butter, cookie butter and vanilla. This can be done with a hand mixer, but I prefer using my stand mixer. I love using my SideSwipe blade, which helps to achieve the super creamy and silky texture.
Then add the powdered sugar, mixing on low until the sugar is incorporated.
Finally, add the heavy cream and beat on high for about 5 minutes until the cookie butter frosting is light, creamy and silky.

- 5 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
- ⅔ cup Cookie Butter
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 3 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
- Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, or a hand held mixer, beat butter, cookie butter and vanilla on medium speed until well combined and smooth, approximately 1-3 minutes.

- Add the heavy cream and whip on high speed until the frosting is light and silky, approximately 5 minutes.
The frosting can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container. For best results, allow to come to room temperature and re-whip prior to using.
Recipe yields enough frosting to frost 12 regular size cupcakes with a not-to-tall swirl with a Wilton 1M tip.
