For the Candy Cane Cookie Butter: Combine the cookie crumbs, sugar and butter in a food processor and pulse to combine.

Transfer the cookie butter to gift jars and refrigerate until ready to use. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to soften before serving.

For the Gingerbread Cookie Butter: Combine the cookie crumbs, butter, brown sugar, molasses and pumpkin pie spice in a food processor and pulse to combine. With the machine running, add enough cream to make a soft paste that collects in a ball around the blade (you might not use all of the cream).
