Every year we try to give a homemade DIY gift to our friends. We’ve done pans of homemade cinnamon rolls, salted caramel sauce, flavored olive oil, and painted spoons. When I saw this in my lastest issue of Food Network Magazine I was really excited to give it a try. The hardest part of making this was deciding which kind of cookies to use.
In the end I decided to make 2 different kinds. I bought a box of ginger snaps and a box of Cinnamon Teddy Grahams. I can’t wait to try more though. Next time i’m going to try biscoff cookies and maybe chocolate chip cookies.
Each batch made one of the little jars you see pictured. At first I just ate the cookie butter with a spoon but i’ve since spread it on toast, english muffins, and apples. The combinations are endless. I think these make a fabulous little gift to give to friends.
Slap a bow and a little tag on each jar and you have a creative personal gift to give each of your friends. Like I said, the hardest part will be deciding what kind of cookies to use. Are you doing homemade gifts this year? What are you giving?
Here is what you’ll need
Process everything until smooth and add to jars
Homemade Cookie Butter
- 2 cup cookies, chopped
- 1/3-1/2 cups canned coconut milk
- 2 tsp sugar
- Combine the chopped cookies, 1/3 cup coconut milk and the sugar in a food processor.
- Process until smooth.
- If it is too thick add a little more coconut milk.
- Note: We used ginger snaps for one batch and cinnamon Teddy Grahams for the other. It is recommended not to use soft cookies or cookies with jelly filling.
