Kimmy sure does love her some Cookie Butter.
My dear friend Kim, that you all have heard me mention before, recently got married to a great guy. I was a bridesmaid in her wedding and not only that, I helped her make up a dance that she and her dad could perform at her wedding (it was so cute). When her parents got into town I went over her house to meet them for the first time and I could immediately see where Kim got her kind and loving spirit from. When I was over Kim’s house, her and her mom was eating what looked like peanut butter with shortbread cookies. But I thought it was strange because I never seen anyone eat cookies with peanut butter. But I asked Kim what she was eating and that is when she told me that she was eating “cookie butter”. The first thing I thought was, “How does Kim find all of these different snacks?” The next thing thought that came to mind required me to ask her if I could try some. So I took a shortbread cookie and dipped in the peanut butter looking substance. I didn’t know what to expect, but I wasn’t expecting what I tasted. It was so yummy! It taste like a creamed shortbread cookie!
Lately Trader Joe’s has been my hot spot. Last week went I went to the grocery store I saw the butter and immediately purchased it. I must have stared at the jar for 30 minutes before I finally figure out what I wanted to do with it. Did I want to make a cake? Did I want to make brownies? Did I want to make truffles? Who knows. Instead, I decided to make cookie butter cookies, practically because I liked the way that sounds, and add a bunch of stuff to them. Luckily I had some pecans, toffee pieces, and chocolate chips at home and that is how I cam up with that cookie idea.
Thank you Kimmy again for introducing me to something new and delicious. Oh! Did I mention Kim is starting a food blog called Cooking With Kimbo. If you are into organic, vegetarian, and vegan eating you might want to become a frequent visitor.Print
