Ingredients

  • 2  Cups  Cookie Crumbs
  • 1/2  Stick Butter
  • 1/2  Cup  Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/4  Cup  Evaporated Milk
  • Water (as needed)

Directions

Place your cookies in a food processor and blend until you have very fine crumbs. You'll need 2 cups of crumbs, so continue to add more until you reach that yield. Every cookie is different, with different sizes so you will never use the same amount of each cookie.
If you're using a cookie with a soft cream center, like the oreo, you will need to scrape out the centers. The cookie crumbs need to be as dry as possible.
Place cookie crumbs in a large bowl.

In a saucepan melt your butter over medium heat. Stir in the evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk until the mixture is melted together. Start streaming in the milk/butter mixture into your cookie crumbs in small additions. Stirring well after each addition. Cool the cookie butter in the refrigerator.
                                           If you would like it to be more of a dipping consistency...

Once cool, stir in tablespoons of water at a time. Stir vigorously! It may look like the water is causing the mixture to separate, do not panic! Keep mixing until you achieve a super smooth, super sexy consistency. Store in the refrigerator and this deliciousness will last about 2 weeks.

Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Cookie Wine Pairing

Milk is more traditional with cookies than wine in the U.S., but a few cookies and a glass of sweet wine make a simple, enjoyable dessert. Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based cookies; sauternes or sweet German wines with sugar cookies; cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts; Italian vin santo with biscotti.
