Hey! How was your July? Hard to believe we’re already into August, but I LOVE that it means fall is around the corner.
Like most food bloggers, I’m dreaming of pumpkin and apple desserts, and I’m planning my fall recipe line-up already. Crazy, isn’t it? This Cookie Butter Frosting feels right to share now because, in my mind, it bridges the gap a bit between summer and fall. Cookie Butter is so strong on cinnamon and warm spice that it always gives me all the fall feels.
Meanwhile, I do still have a lot to share before the onslaught of fall baking, and I totally slacked off last week… but it was my birthday Tuesday, and I think I subconsciously gave myself some leeway.
I get so wrapped up in blogging that almost nothing else gets done beyond the blog and my day job! Last week I did so many fun birthday celebration activities though. We went bowling with family, out for drinks with friends, I also got a massage and did some spa stuff – it was all nice. I absolutely loathe getting old, but I don’t hate the chance to spend time with family and friends, or to be pampered.
I also just got a lot of random life sh*t done! I got my car cleaned, organized closets, boring things like that. I’m a lunatic that actually enjoys organizing though, so to me it was a nice way to spend the downtime.
But there’s a lot of awesome things coming, so let’s get back into it, and we’ll start with this Cookie Butter Frosting. My love affair with Cookie Butter Frosting started last fall when I used it as the filling for these Snickerdoodle Thumbprints with Cookie Butter Buttercream. Those are one of my most popular cookie recipes!
Then I used it again for these Soft Molasses Ginger Cookie Sandwiches with Cookie Butter Buttercream. Those soft ginger cookies are absolutely AMAZING, and the Cookie Butter Frosting sandwiched between them sends them over the top.
It’s addictive stuff! It complements so many different flavors and works with so many baked goods. Cakes, cookies, cupcakes, even brownies. Although cookie butter is thick like peanut butter, it whips up really well in frosting – very light, soft, and fluffy.
This Cookie Butter Frosting is so simple to make, and once you try it, you’ll want it on EVERYTHING!
- ½ c. unsalted butter, softened
- 1¼ c. cookie butter or Biscoff spread
- 3 c. powdered sugar
- 3-4 tbsp. heavy cream
- In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and cookie butter until smooth.
- Add powdered sugar, beating until smooth.
- Add heavy cream, one tablespoon at a time, beating until frosting is light and fluffy. It should be thick, but fluffy and spreadable.
