This Trader Joe's Cookie Butter Pie recipe takes Cookie Butter to a whole new level! With a gingersnap crust and cream cheese filling, everyone will love this easy, no bake dessert idea.
What is Cookie Butter?
One of my family's favorite treats is Trader Joe's Cookie Butter. We pick up a jar pretty much every time we make a trip to our nearest Trader Joe's (about 2 hours away, but it's worth it). Cookie butter is a super popular spread right now. It has the consistency of peanut butter with a hint of spice and a really rich, sweet flavor. With that flavor profile, it's the perfect spread for Trader Joe's Ginger Snaps (seriously, try it). It's also great on toast, in oatmeal, on pancakes, or even by the spoonful. Not that I would know anything about that.
The Inspiration Behind the Cookie Butter Pie Recipe
Since we love cookie butter with gingersnaps, I thought I'd combine the two in this no-bake cookie butter pie recipe! You can whip this treat up in just a few minutes. After you prepare the filling and the crust, chill for at least a few hours in the fridge in order to firm up the filling. Once chilled, you'll have a sinfully delicious, rich pie that will be a total crowd-pleaser. It ends up tasting like a mixture between creamy Biscoff cookies and the best spices in a gingersnap cookie: cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger. On top of that, the crunchy texture of the crust works perfectly with the creamy consistency of the filling.
All you need is a few super simple ingredients and, obviously, a big jar of cookie butter (either the Biscoff Cookie Butter or the Speculoos Cookie Butter from Trader Joe's). If you don't have a local Trader Joe's, many grocery stores have started carrying cookie butter variations that are really similar to the Trader Joe's variety. As a matter of fact, even Walmart has their own cookie butter now! Cookie butter has become so popular in the past few years, so it shouldn't be an issue to find some variation in a store near you. If it is, there are a lot of recipes for homemade cookie butter out there now.
If you'd prefer to make this recipe with peanut butter instead, I think the flavors would work perfectly together. You could even spice it up by adding chocolate chips or oreo cookie pieces to your filling!
Now matter how you choose to make it, cookie butter pie is sure to be an easy dessert that your friends and family will love. I think you'll go back to time and time again.
