No-Bake Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter Pie

I had my maiden voyage to Trader Joe’s in Syracuse, N.Y. last week. I wandered around, checking out each shelf, and in search of the fabled and magical Speculoos Cookie Butter. 

Finally, in the last aisle I checked…there they were, jars of spreadable cookies tasting of cinnamon and nutmeg which is surprisingly Christmas-sy. It is great on a spoon, but even better in a pie with chocolate (because really, what isn’t better in a pie with chocolate).

This is a great pie to make ahead of time if you have other cooking or baking to do!

No-Bake Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter Pie

Crust*: One store bought Oreo cookie crust

*Or you could make your own if you feel ambitious

Filling:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened (half a package)
1 cup creamy Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter
1 cup powdered (confectioner’s) sugar, split into two half cups
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cup heavy cream, whipped 

Grated chocolate or chocolate cookie crumbs or chocolate syrup for topping, optional

Directions

Whip the heavy cream in a medium sized bowl with automatic beaters until it holds soft peaks.  Add in ½ cup of powdered sugar until stiff.  Wash and dry beaters.

In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, cookie butter, remaining ½ cup of powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth.  Add in 1/3 of the whipped cream and beat until mixed.  Fold in remaining whipped cream.

Gently spoon into crust. Garnish with chocolate or cookie crumbs if desired. Refrigerate or freeze for 2 hours before serving.
