When Trader Joe’s released its Speculoos cookie butter, the entire world went wild, and rightfully so. The sweet + buttery spread is so addictive that we regularly eat it by the spoonful while watching our favorite nightly sitcoms. (Sorry, we’re not sorry.)

The answer is A LOT, including baking fudgy brownies, whipping up creamy ice cream and brewing morning lattes.
