If you haven’t heard of cookie butter yet, blame Canada. The ground cookie paste–exactly what it sounds like, but 10 times tastier than you imagine–is nearly impossible to find here. It’s a sensation in its native Europe, and after a few short years on the American market, the sweet spread has garnered cult status among bakers, bloggers and those who aren’t averse to eating things straight from a jar. Some foodies have called it a Nutella substitute, and they’ve even gone so far as to name it “the new Nutella” and “crack in a jar.” That might sound hyperbolic if you haven’t had the sugary pleasure, but like Nutella, cookie butter is sweet, smooth and sublime.

Why it isn’t readily available in Canada is a real puzzler, but if you’re heading to the States, we highly advise stocking up on Lotus Biscoff spread–the original cookie butter–or Trader Joe’s equally yummy versions. But just in case you’re not planning to jump in a car or plane just to stockpile some cookie spread, the first recipe you’ll find in this roundup is for cookie butter itself. Because, hey, we would never leave you hanging like that. In fact, you’ll be a cookie butter rookie no more with these 14 unbelievably decadent desserts!
