Oreo Cookie Butter...!

Friday, May 15, 2015

Yes, you read that correctly.. Oreo Cookie Butter! This recipe actually works with any type of cookie, so just imagine the possibilities! 
Here's you need!
Package of Oreos (or thin mints, or peanut butter cookies, or chocolate chip cookies...!)
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) of butter
1/2 cup of condensed, sweetened milk
1/4 cup evaporated milk

Start with the cookies.. now the recipe I adapted this from recommends that you remove the cream from the middle of the Oreo Cookies.. and I did. (Side note, you can totally leave the cream in.. next time I will!) It takes a little while, but with a butter knife, the cream comes right off the cookies.. don't worry about getting it all!
I used a little more than 3/4 of the package.. there were about 7 cookies left over. You'll have plenty of wet ingredient made so don't be afraid to use the entire pack of cookies!

Put the cookies in the food processor and let it run until you have fine cookie crumbs! Set aside in a glass bowl.
In a sauce pan, melt the butter and add the evaporated milk and the sweetened, condensed milk and stir until combined. (Use a wisk, it works better than a spoon! You can also melt the butter in the microwave and combine in a bowl!)
Using about 1/2 cup of the wet mixture, add to the cookie crumbs and combine. Add until the cookie mixture is just wet enough to stay together. If you keep the cream in the Oreo you will need less liquid, and if you take the cream out, you'll need more. Drier cookies (cream-less ones like sugar or thin mints) need more than a softer cookie, so just pay attention as you are stirring!
Once you have the mix to a consistency of your liking, you can eat it right away, but I recommend putting it in the fridge for an hour or so! It should last a week or so refrigerated-- if it lasts that long!
To soften the cookie butter leave it out to come to room temperature, or you can add a litttttle bit of water and stir in.. it will look like its not mixing in, but then voila! It will loosen the butter up a bit making it easier to dip and spread! We ate ours by the spoonful, but how yummy would it be over some strawberries, pretzels, or graham cracker?!

What kind of cookie are you going to use? Next up for us? Thin Mints!
