  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Total Time 10 min
  • Servings 32

2
packages (8.8 oz each) decorative caramelized biscuit cookies
2
tablespoons packed light brown sugar
5
teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1
teaspoon vanilla
1
tablespoon molasses
2
tablespoons vegetable oil
1
cup water

  • 1 In large food processor, process cookies into fine crumbs. Turn off processor. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla; process until blended. Continue to process while adding molasses and oil through spout.
  • 2 With processor running, add just enough water so mixture becomes a creamy consistency (you might not use all the water). Add more water as needed until you reach desired texture (it should be about the same as peanut butter).
  • 3 Pour cookie butter into airtight container; seal. Store in refrigerator.
