Golden Oreo Cookie Butter

If you need a last-minute holiday gift, or something easy but indulgent to take to a holiday party, look no further than this Golden Oreo Cookie Butter. If you’ve never tried cookie butter, you’ve been missing out! It’s basically a sweet, delicious spread make from–you guessed it–finely ground cookie crumbs. If you think that sounds weird, so did my family. Until they tried it! Now they’ll happily eat it with a spoon. But when we’re feeling more civilized, we enjoy it on pancakes and waffles, and as a dip for pretzels, graham crackers and fruit.

This decadent spread is so easy to make, with the help of a food processor, and in a glass jar with a pretty ribbon, it makes a unique and tasty gift for neighbors or co-workers. And yes, you can make it with chocolate Oreos too! It does need to be stored in the refrigerator, so just be sure to let it come to room temperature before serving. I like to divide it between several small jars so I can just take out what I’ll use in one sitting and keep the rest refrigerated.

Golden Oreo Cookie Butter

Preparation 10 Total Time 0:00


  • 36 Golden Oreos
  • 3 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/3-1/2 cup cream


  1. Coarsely crumble Golden Oreos into the bowl of a food processor. Process until fine crumbs are formed, stopping to scrape down the bowl, as needed.
  2. Add the oil and process for another minute. Scrape down the bowl again.
  3. With the food processor running, slowly add the cream until the mixture begins to form a ball and the desired consistency is reached (you may not use all the cream). The cookie butter should be spreadable and about the same consistency as very soft peanut butter.
  4. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to one week. Bring to room temperature before using.

    Dumb question I know, but is it 36 whole cookies with the creme filling, the golden part of 36 cookies, no filling(ie 72 single sides) or 36 single sides?

    Yum Yum Yum… I am going to make this for my christmas hampers this year, but can you clarify for me what cream it is for this. I am assuming single, which is thinnest hence why im assuming that or is it thicker like double I need?
