Trefoil Cookie Butter

EDIT: My recipe is a finalist in the Girl Scout Cookie Recipe Contest! You can vote for it here.

It’s one of my favorite times of the year: Girl Scout Cookie Recipe time! Because the only thing more fun than eating Girl Scout Cookies is finding ways to incorporate Girl Scout Cookies into other foods!

This year, I wanted to make a homemade version of something that’s been growing in popularity: Cookie Butter. While the cookies found in these butters are usually either gingersnaps or graham crackers, I wanted to make them with Trefoils. The shortbread cookie gives a fantastic sweet, buttery flavor to anything you want to put the spread on. I recommend apples.

The cookie butter is super quick and easy to make, and uses ingredients you most likely already have at home!

Trefoil Cookie Butter

Ingredients:

  • 1 Sleeve of Trefoils (approx. 20 cookies)
  • 2 TBS light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 3 TBS vegetable oil
  • 2 TBS milk

Directions:

Place the cookies in a food processor, slightly breaking them up as you put them in. Grind until the cookies are fine, even crumbs.

Add brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon into the food processor. Mix thoroughly.

Add oil and milk, one TBS at a time, mixing thoroughly in between each turn. Mix until you receive a peanut butter-like consistency.

Enjoy! Place the cookie butter into a sealable container and keep refrigerated.
