What is better than cookies? Cookie butter. And if you've yet to have, or even hear of, this magical substance — read on for sweetness sake. Because butter itself is a bonafide food group, spinoffs like apple butter, maple butter, pumpkin butter, peanut butter, etc., have spawned in its golden wake. And naturally, the most glorious of all the butter offspring has been that of cookie. A food child whose parents represent all that is creamy, sweet, and comforting in the world — cookie butter reigns supreme as, essentially, a jar of spreadable cookies. Where can you get your hands on this wondrous spread? We'd recommend Trader Joe's (of course). If you're intrigued but also a little stumped on how to use it, we've got recs. Pinterest has helped to share in the splendor by sharing these top ten pinned recipes from across the web — so scroll on and let some cookie butter melt into your life, NOW.
