If you ate too much gingerbread over the holidays and aren’t sure what to do with the leftovers, we have your answer: cookie butter. Past-their-prime cookies are best suited to a sweet spread like this one, so round up any gingers that are no longer soft. Slather the butter onto shortbread or graham crackers, use it as a dip for salty pretzels or simply eat it by the spoonful!
