Don’t know what Cookie Butter is? Read THIS post.

Whenever I post a recipe that contains Cookie Butter, I inevitably get the question:  “What is Cookie Butter??” (Hence the bold and the red.)  Recently my friend Joan posted this explanation of what it is:

“It is a jar full of unicorn tears and ground up deliciousness that tastes like it was made in Narnia”

 That’s just a far better explanation than anything I could come up with.

My love for Cookie Butter runs deep people.

Guess what else my love runs deep for? Really any sort of recipe that involves soaking bread in an eggy mixture and baking it. I don’t know what it is, but I loooooove it. French toast is just okay, but I could eat a whole pan of stuffing. What is that about??

So a few weeks ago when I was doing recipe development for stuffing, I had all the bread dried out and ready to go but I was missing one of the other ingredients, I can’t remember what it was, I think an onion. (We so rarely have onions in my house, since my husband is convinced they are the fruit of the devil.)  Then while searching my pantry for something else, maybe something silly like dinner for the kids, who knows, I stumbled upon my jar of cookie butter! (Yes I keep an extra jar or five in my house at all times #dontjudge). And at that very moment the heavens parted, an angel descended into my pantry and spoke to me while harps played in the background, “Go forth and make Cookie Butter Bread Pudding!”

Okay, that didn’t really happen.

 But it might as well have, because this bread pudding is THAT good. Also, can we come up with a different name for this dish than bread pudding? Doesn’t that sound disgusting? It’s a total slap in the face to everything amazing about this. Do you see that white chocolate chip baked to perfection. It pairs so perfectly with the cookie butter taste of this dish. Sigh. This is amazing warm, but, ironically, also delicious when snuck straight from the refrigerator one cube at a time.

Edited to Add:  I revamped this recipe about a year after originally posting because I decided that bread pudding turns out just a little bit better when instead of using dry bread that soaks up liquid quickly you use fresh bread but let it all sit for about 20 minutes.

      Thanks Karly! I’ve affectionally named my muffin top, “Cookie Butter” since that’s where it came from. Though it’s nickname is “Wine.” :)

  4. Debbie says

    Sounds amazing! When do you add the cookie butter? The recipe doesn’t specify.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Good catch Debbie! I just updated the recipe. Thank you!

    No, one cube at a time wouldn’t cut it for me, I’d snarf the whole thing down…loving this!

  6. Liz says

    Genius! As a cookie butter addict, I can’t wait to try this recipe

  7. Jennifer says

    What is bun bread? Slider buns? Are these the Hawaiian sweet rolls? Can you use French bread? Thank you!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Like the slider buns that you would find in the bakery section of your grocery store. You can use French bread, but I would go for a baguette that isn’t as crunchy on the outside. Maybe an Italian loaf without the sesame seeds.

      • Jennifer says

        Thank you for responding! I can’t wait to try this!

  8. Rachel says

    Hi, looks amazing, I’m in the UK could you tell me roughly in grams how heavy a cup of bun bread is? Also how many choc chips they’re not listed in the ingredients. Thanks Rachel x

    • Lisa Longley says

      Rachel, I’m so sorry, I have absolutely no idea. And thank you for pointing out the chocolate chips error! It’s one cup of white chocolate chips.

  9. Marian says

    What is cookie butter and where do you find it?

  10. Lynda Albright says

    Has anyone ever tried this with semi sweet chocolate chips as I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate

    • Lisa Longley says

      These would be great with chocolate chips! Go for it!
