How To: Make Cookie Butter at Home
Looking for the perfect foodie gift for friends and family this year? Spread holiday cheer with cookie butter. (No, I'm not talking about buying the Speculoos Cookie Butter from Trader Joe's -- don't bank on the store having a full stock; there could be a shortage, or employees could limit the amount you purchase.) I'm saying make a batch of cookie butter at home this year and ensure you'll have enough to give your loved ones (and keep some for yourself).

After reading the latest Food Network Magazine, I found a recipe for making the sweet cookie spread. Here's how you can do it at home, and a few ways to make different flavors.
First, combine 12 gingersnaps with six graham cracker sheets and five shortbread cookies in a plastic bag. Smash the cookies until they are crumbled, but not completely pulverized -- that's what the food processor is for.
