No way. Too good to be true. Cookie butter? Sign me up…Desserts / October 22, 2014
Trader Joe’s has already achieved the highest ranking in my book. They don’t need to do anything else and I will always be loyal. So when my sister introduced me to one of their more fantastic food offerings, SPECULOOS COOKIE BUTTER, the swoon factor went up about 100 points. And once you taste it you’ll understand why I swirled it into the richest, creamiest vanilla custard pie I’ve ever made. Then, because the Speculoos Biscuit has a bit of a gingerbread taste, I laid it all on a bed of my lime, ginger, and honey syrup. YUM!
The story behind our Speculoos craze is my sister and her love of all things TJ. And because she is allergic to peanuts and chocolate, (I know, I was hatched…we can’t be related.) she has glommed on to this stuff like a teenager to free WiFi and we have followed the LUV.
I have been planning on making something with this yummy stuff for some time. Pie is what came first.
