Let's get started, shall we?
Cookie butter is a similar concept to peanut butter but with entirely different ingredients.
It's a thick paste that's made from speculoos cookies, among other ingredients. And what is speculoos cookies, you might ask.
Well speculoos cookies are shortbread cookies that are infused with spices like nutmeg, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves.. just to name a few.
The spice flavours in the cookies are really wonderful because they are not so strong. The flavours just lingers nicely in your mouth.
As for the brand, the famous one is Lotus Biscoff. That's the one that I'm using in this recipe today and also the one I used for my no-bake cookie butter cheesecake.

Well, this is a cookie butter dessert recipe so I would really suggest you try your hardest to find it.

Just use your favourite biscuits or cookies for the crumbs. As for the filling, use your favourite nut butter like peanut butter or almond butter. Whatever works for you. Adjust the sweetness as you go.
