To make cookie butter you will need 2-2.5 cups of cookie crumbs (depending on which kind of cookie you use). You can use any of your favorite (think Oreo, nutter butter, shortbread, ect.). If your cookies have cream in the middle you'll want to scrape that out first. Make the crumbs by placing cookies into your food processor and pulse until it's all crumbs. I used around 50 vanilla wafers to get to 2 cups. Next you want to mix together your melted butter (1/2 stick), sweetened condensed milk (1/2 cup), and 1/4 cup of evaporated milk (or milk of your choice). Slowly pour this mixture into your food processor with the cookie crumbs to blend and make a paste like texture. If its too thin just add in more cookie crumbs.
I served this with some homemade chocolate chip pumpkin bread I made. YUM!!!
