One of my best friends had been telling me FOREVER to make a speculoos cupcake. But I just kept making excuses because i hate the name of it. Spe-cu-loos. Weird, unappetizing, sorta nerdy.
But at the grand opening of Trader Joes in Salt Lake City the other week, I decided I would give it a shot. TJ’s calls it “Cookie Butter” so I guess their head honchos are on the same pay as me with the whole-who would ever eat something with such a terrible name- thing. I went home, tasted with a spoon, and that’s how I continued to eat the entire rest of the jar. I never spread it on anything, it just went from jar to spoon to mouth.
