What is Cookie Butter?

Cookie butter is a spread, with the consistency of peanut butter, made from crushed speculoos cookies. Speculoos are spiced cookies, similar to gingerbread, with a shortbread-like buttery flavor.

When pulverized, magic happens… turning them into an amazing spread.

It’s marvelous in just about everything from this No Bake Cookie Butter Cheesecake, Cookie Butter Ice Cream, Cookie Butter Cake, and Cookie Butter Bars.

It’s luxuriously creamy and incredibly dreamy. The flavor and texture are out of this world, especially when paired with a No Bake Speculoos Cookie Crust for added crunch!

Cookie Butter Cheesecake Ingredients

  • Heavy Cream – Heavy whipping cream provides the soft and luscious texture that makes this cheesecake recipe so dreamy. For best results, make sure your heavy cream is cold prior to whipping.
  • Powdered Sugar – Also known as confectioner’s sugar, it adds to the creamy texture. It dissolves into the whipped cream adding a touch of sweetness. If you don’t have any on hand, you can pulse white granulated sugar in a food processor until light and fluffy.
  • Cookie Butter – I buy cookie butter at Trader Joe’s but you can find it in other stores, too. Try not to eat it out of the jar as you spoon it into your filling mixture. I like the creamy version for this cheesecake (there’s a crunchy version available too, but not the right choice for this cheesecake!) Close up shot of a cookie butter cheesecake recipe.
  • Cream Cheese – Make sure your cream cheese is softened for a smooth consistency.
  • Speculoos Cookie Crust – It’s so easy and makes the perfect pairing for Cookie Butter Cheesecake. Alternatively,  you can substitute Sugar Cookie Crust Pretzel Crust or Shortbread Crust! You can also use a store bought pie crust from the baking department of your local grocer.

Yes! This rich and creamy cookie butter cheesecake is a great make ahead dessert since it stores in the fridge so well. Make the cheesecake recipe up to two days in advance, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and store in your fridge until ready to serve.
