What Is Cookie Butter?

Cookie Butter is pretty much just what it sounds like. It’s essentially a spreadable cookie. The cookie that cookie butter is derived from is a spiced European cookie called speculoos with the largest distributor of the cookie being the Lotus Biscoff Cookies.

The spread was first introduced in Europe in 2009 and made it’s way to the U.S in 2011. Ever since it’s pretty much been crack for anyone who tries it. The uses for it are similar to how Nutella is used, as they are both considered a nut butter.
