Gingerbread Cookie Butter

Gingerbread Cookie Butter-13

I found something I am not very good at this past weekend. Lawn bowls!

I really wanted to love it but I didn’t really like trying to get close to a white ball without hitting it. I am probably hiding my lack of skill with my lack of interest but WHATEVER. 

I did, however, thoroughly enjoy sitting on the side sipping cider and eating real Italian sausages on a roll from Smithfield (Italian food mecca) that my friend drove to out of his way to buy before coming to bowls. 

It’s safe to say my friend and I have a real food love in common.

Another real food? COOKIE BUTTER. 

Some would disagree, but pfft to those naysayers. I actually baked the damn cookies that went into this cookie butter from scratch.

Then blended them with other glorious ingredients such as butter and sweetened condensed milk and HELLO. You have gingerbread cookie butter. 

You also have my very first contribution to the Christmas treat circuit of 2015. Hai!

I am a late comer to the whole cookie butter scene only having Speculoos spread like 3 months ago. But don’t worry, I am becoming a pro.

Maybe it’ll be the same story with the lawn bowls?

Thanks so much to the generous folk at Russell Hobbs for this Performance Blender. I’ve been using it to make smoothies and nut flours and other blended things and it is AMAZING. Keep a look out next week to WIN some Russell Hobbs AND other goodies!

    This is quite possibly the COOLEST recipe I have ever seen! I am a total sucker for cookie butter and always bring home a jar when I visit the USA but it didn’t cross my mind that I could make it at home! And gingerbread flavour – Its genius!!!

    Looks incredible Erin! I haven’t had cookie butter before, but am more than a little concerned that I will make this recipe and proceed to consume the whole lot in one go…could be dangerous having it in the fridge (if it even made it there!). And with freshly made, still-warm cookies too?! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. What recipe did you use for the cookies? (i don’t think your link above is working) x

    If I made this for my nephew I would most probably be his favourite Aunty for the rest of my life! All the more reason to give it a go. Good luck with the lawn bowls!

    this recipe is absolutely divine! so simple, yet it looks so delicious.
    approximately how many cups would 200g of gingersnap cookies be?
