I used to think that Nutella was the most addicting thing my pantry held in a jar… that is until cookie butter came to town. If you haven’t tried cookie butter, allow me to explain. Say hello to spreadable cookies.

It basically tastes like the most delicious shortbread spiced cookie you’ve ever had that has been blended up into a creamy peanut butter-like texture and basically melts in your mouth.

It’s rich, aromatic and tastes good on anything or nothing (I can eat it by the spoonful). It’s a cross between peanut butter and soft cookie dough. You can find the Speculoos brand at most grocery stores and Trader Joes also has an amazing version.

What do you eat cookie butter with?

Honestly, I love it literally just by the spoonful after dinner. I’ve put it in cookies recipes, melted onto vanilla ice cream, and snuck into the center of fudgy brownies and most recently in today’s French toast recipe!

How to make Cookie Butter French Toast Casserole:

I love this recipe because of how decadent, yet simple it is.

This is a ‘French toast bake’, which means you won’t spend any time slaving over the stove-flipping slice after slice. A casserole type of French toast is great if you’re having people over for brunch and need something that comes together quickly.

  1. Start with the bread: A loaf like Challah or brioche works wonders for this. Grab a serrated knife and cut thick, even slices.
  2. Prep your batter: Whisk together your milk, eggs, butter, cookie butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and salt until smooth and creamy.
  3. Coat each bread slice: Dip each slice into the batter, making sure the bread is evenly coated. Arrange each slice in a large casserole dish.
  4. If you have any egg batter leftover just drizzle it right on top of the bread.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown!
