Cookie butter is one of the most indulgent, unabashedly sweet treats in existence, and Olive Garden knows it.
If you’re unacquainted with the spread, cookie butter is basically just ground-up cookies blended with powdered sugar and vegetable oil. Sounds too good to be true, right?
But now we don’t have to feel too ashamed of eating it straight out the jar with a spoon and calling it “dessert” because Olive Garden is introducing a Cookie Butter Cake to its menu starting Monday, July 31.
According to Refinery 29, this magnificently sweet dessert is composed of two fluffy layers of vanilla cake, and blanketed between the layers is the good stuff the creamy cookie butter. The cake is frosted with even more cookie butter and drizzled with warm caramel syrup. Oh, and there’s even some crumbled up cookies in there to make this slice even better.
“We wanted to create a flavor of comfort and crave-ability,” Jessica Dinon, an Olive Garden rep told TODAY, “What more says comfort than cookie butter in cake form?”
And she’s right. This dessert looks like a warm hug by a chocolate chip cookie after a delicious Italian dinner. Can’t get much better than that.
