Homemade Cookie Butter

Cookie Butter. I love it, you love it, Trader Joe’s sells a ton of it. They do make really delicious ones, but I never really thought to make my own, until I saw this Bustle video showing how to make it, using only four ingredients. Naturally, I had to make it. I made a lot of s’mores earlier this week, but couldn’t use any of the broken graham crackers. Nothing ever goes to waste, so, Graham Cracker Cookie Butter coming up. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 cups of any cookie of your choice
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk

The instructions couldn’t be easier. First, take a blender or food processor and throw in the cookies. Blend them up completely. Then, add in the butter, condensed milk and evaporated milk, and blend that all together. That’s it! Eat it right away, or seal it in a container or jar and keep it in the fridge for up to a couple weeks. But, let’s be real, it won’t even stand a chance lasting that long.

Panther Coffee

Coffee. Fuel. Life. I need it, and was on the search for a really great cup while I was in Miami. So, I headed over Panther Coffee In Sunset Harbor.

This locally based coffee shop specializes in the small-batch roasting of coffee beans, and preparing finely crafted beverages. I ordered a Cappuccino, which was just what I needed. Nice flavor, and a beautiful little heart in the foamed milk.

They also have an amazing looking selection of cookies, so, I obviously had to get one. I went for their S’Mores Cookie, because, duh. It’s about the size of a small child’s face, and super delicious (the cookie, not a child’s face). It has a nice, slight crispness on out outside, and a soft, chewy center, riddled with chocolate chunks, graham and tiny bits of caramelized marshmallow.

I got creative with it and made a S’Mores S’Mores Cookie with some Birthday Party Squish Marshmallows. It was off the charts. 

The Shorts:
Name: Panther Coffee
Location: 1875 Purdy Avenue, Miami Beach, FL
The Long and Short: Would I go back? For sure, the space is open, bright, and you can tell they take a lot of pride in making each coffee.
Would I recommend it? Yes, a great spot to grab a cup, and definitely when it’s accompanied by a giant cookie.
