Cookie Butter Buttercream
I have a huge sweet tooth. I’ve said it before in a previous post. Cupcakes are the easiest thing to make, so I decided I’d bake some. While trying to figure out what kind of frosting to make, I saw I had a whole jar of Cookie Butter. I already had a regular buttercream recipe from Culinary Arts, so I tweaked it. This is how Cookie Butter buttercream was born.
Cookie Butter Buttercream
The first thing I did was add he softened butter into my Kitchen Aid and turn the mixer on low to smooth out. I add the Vanilla, and mixed until combined, followed by adding the cookie butter until completely mixed together.
Once everything is completely mixed together, I added the powedered sugar one cup at a time.
Finally I add the milk one tablespoon at a time until I reached the right consistency.
Enjoy & let me know if you make this buttercream!!!
- 1 cup Butter, softened
- 2 tbsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 cup Cookie Butter
- 4 cups Powdered Sugar
- 4-5 tbsp Milk
- Mix softened butter & vanilla in mixing bowl until combined
- Add cookie butter, mix until combined
- Add powdered sugar one cup at a time until completely mixed in
- Add milk 1 tbsp at a time until desired consistency
This looks like it would go great on a butter pecan cake! Is there a non-dairy option?
I’ve never tried it non dairy, but now I’m going to start experimenting & I’ll let you know! I’m sure for the milk you could easily use almond, cashew, or soy milk. I’m not sure what the non dairy equivalent for butter is though. But I’m sure that would work too.
This looks so good!
Only five ingredients? SOLD! Haha seriously though, less is more in my baking book!
My favorite things to make are the ones with the least amount of ingredients! I definitely agree with less is more.
As soon as I saw the title to this post, I knew I had to get this recipe! 1.Why have I never heard of cookie butter before? And 2. Where do I get some?!?! Definitely going to try this out!!!
The best cookie butter I’ve had is from Trader Joe’s, but I usually just get a store brand one at whatever store I’m at! I first had cookie butter in some ice cream. It had a cookie butter core. After that I was hooked. Let me know if you try it!!
OMG YUM! This looks dangerously good and I have a feeling my girls will love 🙂
I will neither confirm or deny that I ate entirely too much of this.. with a spoon… before it made it on to the cupcakes. If you end up making it, let me know if your girls like it!
I have never heard of cookie butter before! It sounds so amazing. And this looks delicious

I love cookie butter so can imagine this would be a tasty take on buttercream. Will have to give this a try!
We have something called Speculoos here in France, which are biscuits. They make it into kind of a spread too. Does that sound like it could be similar to cookie butter?
Yes! It’s the same thing! I love Speculoos!
This seriously looks soooo freakin’ GOOD!!! I haven’t had cookie butter in a long time! I have to make this soon!
Let me know if you do!
