Oreo Cookie Butter

I'm going to say three words that are going to blow your mind.

Oreo. Cookie. Butter.

You've might have heard about that fancy cookie butter than so many foodies are cooing about. Yeah, me too. And then I thought, "why not do the same thing with other cookies?"

Specifically, Oreos.

Yes, I made Oreo cookie butter. Like peanut butter that tastes like Oreos and has no peanuts. Spreadable Oreo chocolate fudgy goodness.

If you've ever had an Oreo cookie (and who hasn't?) you know that flavor. It's the perfect cookie to transform into something else, and have people say HUH? and wonder how you did it.

It's so easy, it's embarrassing. It's almost not a recipe. It's magic.

What can you do with this magic cookie butter goodness?

Well, to start with, I spread it on graham crackers. You could spread it between other cookies to make sandwich cookies (try it with peanut butter cookies).You could eat it with a spoon. You could mix it into ice cream. So many options, so easy to make ...

Oreo Cookie Butter

12 Oreo cookies*
2 tablespoons water

Put the cookies in your food processor and process until you have a very very fine powder.

Scrape down the sides and make sure you don't have any chunky pieces left. Keep processing until it's all a fine powder.

Add the water a teaspoon at a time until you have a thick, shiny, fudgy spread.

And that's it. Pure magic.

*Note: I haven't tried this with the double-stuffed. I suspect it would take less water - maybe none.
