Make Your Own Cookie Butter

I have never bought Cookie Butter from the store. The cost is way more than I’m willing to pay. Thankfully I found pins on Pinterest with different ways to make your own. I have a base recipe I use to create many different flavors by swapping out the type of cookie used. Here is how I make mine:


Ingredients:
2 to 2.5 cups of cookie crumbs (like shortbread, Nutter Butter, Oreo, Vanilla Wafers, etc.)
1/2 stick of butter (melted)
1/2 cup of Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/4 cup Evaporated Milk

Directions:
If your choice of cookies has cream in the middle, you need to scrape that out first. (Save this cream to stir/blend in at the end.) Put cookies in a food processor and pulse to turn into crumbs. It took me around 12 Fudge stripe or 50 Vanilla Wafers to get up to 2 cups. In a small bowl mix together the melted butter, sweet milk, and evaporated milk. Slowly add this mixture to crumbs in a food processor. Blend to make a paste-like texture. If you find it’s too thin, you can add in more cookie crumbs.

Store this in a covered Mason jar in the refrigerator. When I’m ready to use it, I let mine sit out on the counter for 20-30 minutes to soften to a spreadable consistency. I like serving this with apple slices, graham crackers, or with homemade sweet breads (Banana, Zucchini, or Pumpkin).

Nutella Frosted Rice Krispie Treats


Follow the directions for making Rice Krispie Treats. The recipe can be found on the back of the cereal box or a bag of Marshmallows (I like to use 1 full bag plus another 1/2 bag of the mini ones). Once they are cooled proceed with the following----

Ingredients:
1 cup of Nutella
3/4 cup of Milk Chocolate Chips
1 Tbsp. of Butter (or Coconut Oil)

Directions:
While Rice Krispies are cooling down, begin making the frosting by combining all ingredients in a double boiler or microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 15-30 second increments (stirring after each increment). When the chocolate is melted to a smooth texture it is ready. Carefully pour melted chocolate over Rice Krispies and gently spread to cover completely. Transfer to refrigerator uncovered to cool completely (for about an hour). Once set you can cut them into squares to serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container in a cool place (or fridge).

For Today: 12/2/18
_____________________________

Looking out my window
It’s cold and cloudy outside. Our high for today is 40 degrees.

I am thinking
About how God has been so good to us all year long.

I am thankful
For those who continue to acknowledge/say “Jesus is the reason for the season”.

One of my favorite things
I love taking time during the Christmas season to just enjoy celebrating Christ with my family and the body of Christ and doing things to bring smiles to other people’s faces.

I am creating
Nothing much just making some homemade cleaner to scrub the bathtub. Gotta love homemaking :)

I am wearing
A pretty blouse and maroon pants.

I am reading
Nothing at the moment.

I’ve been watching
My family and I love watching Classic Christmas movies this time of year.

I am listening to
Why Christmas music of course!

I am hoping
We make it to the Christmas Parade this weekend.

I am learning
To cast all my cares on the Lord.

In my kitchen
I made some Date Paste
before switching out my Fall decor




I made some Pumpkin Apple Butter. It turned out great. YUM!

Give thanks~ week 4


Colossians 3:17 (KJV)

"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."

What am I thankful for today?

I am thankful for all that God has blessed my family with this year. I'm also thankful God is faithful to never leave or forsake us when facing times of uncertainty and testing. We remained calm, trusted in the Lord, left things in the Father's hands, and things turned out well. Praise be to our Heavenly Father!
