I hate letting food go to waste. We rarely have leftovers in my house, but when we do I’m always looking for interesting ways to reuse them. After going through my own personal cookie baking marathon these last two weeks, most of my cookies are gone but I have about half a cookie jar filled with crumbs! Of course, I can’t just throw these away. But what can I possibly do to re-purpose a bunch of crumbs? Enter the Cookie Crumb Dip.
I am so excited about this. This delicious dip can be made from any type of cookie. You can serve it at parties with gram crackers for a dessert dip. It can also be spread on bagels and toast for those like me who think dessert and breakfast were made for each other. This dip becomes firm in the fridge, so I was able to roll a few balls of mock ‘cookie dough’ out of it to mix in with ice cream!
So Good, I Think I’ll Bake More Cookies
I ended up making three batches of this after the first one turned out so well. One was made with a mixture of cookie crumbs and the others were made with Oatmeal Raisin and Snickerdoodle cookies. The Oatmeal Raisin Dip is perfect for bagels in the morning and the cinnamon-sugar flavor of Snickerdoodle Dip is delicious on toast. The mixed cookie crumb dip worked great for bagels and toast as well, but this one was my favorite to use with gram crackers as a sweet snack.
Gather up your leftover cookies or cookie crumbs. Chop them in a food processor a few times to break down bigger pieces and make the crumbs more uniform. Take 2 cups of the Cookie Crumbs and pour ½ cup melted Butter on top to make them soft and gooey. Next, mix in 1/3 cup Cream Cheese. Let the cream cheese soften a bit first to make mixing easier, you want a nice smooth dip. Mix all the of these ingredients together and if you have a few bigger chunks of cookie left you can sprinkle those on for an extra bite of cookie. Serve as a dip or a spread and enjoy!
