Heaven in a Jar

I've found a little bit of heaven in a jar.  OK, perhaps that's an exaggeration, but I have to admit, its pretty damned close!  I'm talking about Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter.  What is cookie butter you ask? It a looks like peanut butter, but it tastes like gingerbread cookies, and once you start buying it, you will never stop! I'm already on my second jar, and am looking buy a third already.  Thankfully, Ed is not a fan...so more for me!!!

How do you eat it?  well you eat it any way you want, on apple slices, crackers, cookies, or just plain out of the jar (which is my favorite way).  The problem is figuring out how to stop eating it.  If that isn't bad enough, those folks at Trader Joe's found another way to put folks under their cookie butter spell by creating a version with cocoa!   I haven't tried the cocoa version yet, I'm almost afraid because once I start eating it, I won't be able to stop myself.  I have visions of my future self....being super huge and unable to leave the house because I cannot fit through the door, and surrounded by empty jars of cookie butter, as well as cookie butter smeared all over my lips. At least these visions are making me go to the gym more often.


There is something about this stuff that makes people insane!  Recently, on ebay I saw someone selling four jars for $55.00?  Seriously?  That is crazy!!  I'm just thankful that there is a Trader Joe's near my home and only need to fork out $3.69 per jar. If that isn't insane enough, there are now folks out there creating their own recipes for cookie butter.

Here and Here and Here

Seriously, having a recipe to make this stuff is dangerous!  You have been warned!!!
