Cookie Butter is all you need to take blondies to the NEXT level!  LIKE NEXT, NEXT LEVEL!

Cookie Butter Love!

Have you had cookie butter?  Are you a fan?  If you are not, I am not sure we can be best friends, but we can be friends… but be warned I will probably try to make you fall in love with cookie butter.   

Not sure what I am talking about… no problem.  It is basically speculous cookies (think mild gingersnaps) whipped into a delicious peanut butter/nutella type spread.  There is just something so delicious about the slightly spicy, creamy, gingery, warm yumminess of cookie butter.  I use it on toast, biscuits, cookies, in dips, on waffles or pancakes, in cookies or just on a spoon… but now that I have used in blondies, well this may be my new favorite.

Where do you find this stuff?

In order to fall in love with cookie butter you obviously have to know where to find it.  I always get mine at Trader Joes, but if you do not have one close by you can order it right here.  There is also a combo pack with a crunchy version, I am a also a BIG fan of that as well.

You can also typically find some variation at your local grocery store such as Lotus Biscoff Spread, which is pretty good as well.  I am also sure there are recipes on Pinterest to make your own… I just haven’t ventured down that rabbit hole just yet.  If you do, let me know how it goes.

Perfect for Fall… or anytime of the year!

Just because I used fall M&M’s do not be fooled that this is just a Fall recipe… believe me it is NOT!  Cookie butter is something I keep in my pantry year round and these blondies will be on my menu year round as well.  I will just change up the M&M’s for the current season.

I am already imaging the Christmas M&M’s, easter, July 4th …. OH AND HALLOWEEN!  So fun!
