In Response to Oreo cookie butter:
After trying out Trader Joe's cookie butter, I became curious about what other cookies you could make cookie butter from, and found this recipe for oreo cookie butter. It's fun and easy to make and would make a great gift for the holidays. There are also online recipes for homemade Nutella and regular cookie butter that you could put in a jar and give as a gift. Ingredients 1 box of Oreo Cookies (about 36 cookies) ¼ cup coconut oil*, at room temperature Instructions Combine the oreos and coconut oil in a food processor. Turn it on and let it run for at least 5 minutes. Scrape down the sides, and let it run again for at least 3 minutes, longer if you have the patience. The food processor will heat up the coconut oil, making it very fluid: as your finished Oreo Cookie Butter cools, it will solidify more to the consistency of peanut butter. Store at room temperature. (I found that it took around 10-12 minutes total processing time to get the mixture the right consistency. ) Notes *If you don’t like the taste of coconut oil, substitute vegetable oil, but use less as it will result in a runnier product.

Thanks for the "recipe" I have been looking at the label to see if I could make it. Pretty much like I have made my version of Nutella.
The coconut oil is a good idea and I happen to love the taste of it. Now I can think of all sorts of cookies to turn into "butter"
