Biscoff Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are a few things in life that I’ve been late to the scene to.

  • Grey’s Anatomy {I just started watching it a year and a half ago}
  • Skinny Jeans
  • Random songs from 2005 {“Is this a new song? I love it!”….negative}

…and most importantly….

  • Cookie Butter.

I just discovered Biscoff cookie butter at World Market right before I left on my book tour. I ran into the store to grab a small wicker basket to proof my bread in and ended up with a cart-full of random “necessities” such as tea, a chalkboard coffee mug, happy hippo bars and Biscoff spread. I couldn’t WAIT to try it, especially from what everyone has told me, so right after I got in my car I unscrewed the red top and dug my finger right in. Don’t tell me you’ve never done that before! Anyway, it was absolutely delicious — kind of like cinnamon peanut butter — and I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it {besides eat it with my fingers in the parking lot} and that was make cookies!

If you’ve never tried this culinary delight before, you need to stop reading this post, grab your keys and high-tail it over to World Market or Cost Plus right this instant.

Biscoff spread tastes EXACTLY like the delicious cookies you get on Delta flights, making it perfect to dip apples in, stir into oatmeal or just eat with your fingers.

These cookies have the chewy texture of peanut butter cookies, but are full of this yummy Biscoff spread and dark chocolate chips. Judging from experience, I’ll just tell you up front that it’s practically impossible to only eat one.

I made these cookies to take to my book signing last month in Santa Rosa. It might have been one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made in my life, other than to say yes to a first date with Adam.

These cookies keep well, so they are great to pack on road trips or dates. The dough has a little bit different texture than that of normal peanut butter or chocolate chip cookies, but don’t worry — they’ll turn out great!

Edit as of 9:30am: Unfortunately the owner of Big Hat Books in Indianapolis is in the hospital and unable to open the store tonight for my signing. I apologize about this greatly and am sure she could use your prayers right now!

Edit AGAIN: I will sign books tomorrow morning at PANERA BREAD in Indianapolis around 8:15-8:30am if you guys want to meet me there for some coffee — unfortunately that’s the only other time that works so I hope I will see y’all there!

The address to Panera is 5025 East 82nd Street, Indianapolis

    From someone who lives overseas, THANK YOU for explaining what Biscoff is! I’ve seen it on all the food blogs but we don’t get it (in Northern Ireland) and nobody has ever given a decent description of what it’s like. Darn, now I know all about it I wish I could get some here!

      Hi Nikki, I’ve been able to purchase it recently in one of the big B&M superstores (in Belfast), it’s sold under the brand name as ‘Lotus Spread’. The stuff is seriously amazing.

    Biscoff is amazing! One of the greatest perks of living over here in belgium is ready access to speculoos cookies (the cookies that they make the spread with). If you can get your hands on some of the crunchy biscoff, you’re in for a real treat!

    As a kid I loved when the airlines gave biscoff cookies on their flights! I have yet to try the butter though! I’ve heard it’s amazing…so I’m scared to bring it into my house! Ha! But the cookies look divine, and I bet the biscoff butter adds a great flavor! I also think that trader joes sells a spin off of this…cookie butter?

  • Devon

    More about that first date, please. πŸ˜‰
    These cookies sound so good!! I put cookie butter in my pumpkin oatmeal yesterday which practically made my day.
    Also…dietitians in my office go nuts over this not top-of-the-line healthy spread. It’s just too good.

    Don’t worry Jenna, you’ve still beat me to the cookie butter party!! As far as I know, Biscoff isn’t sold here in Canada but I fully intend to hunt down a jar next time I’m in the US!

    Thank you for the recipe. I currently live in Belgium, where I first discovered speculoos (that’s what they call the spice mix) and they also sell speculoos spread (crunchy, with cookie pieces, and smooth – just like peanut butter).

  • Abby@ Totes Delish

    I am in love with cookie butter, especially the Trader Joe’s kind! I have to limit myself to a spoonful (or 2!) a day or the entire jar would be gone in no time flat. Good thing there is a World Market near my office : )

    I have actually never had cookie butter. I’ve almost bought it from TJ’s, but I just know how dangerous it would be to be in my house. πŸ˜‰ I might have to pick some up and make these cookies, though. They look so delicious!

  • Caitlin Cress

    My BF and I are flying to Denver soon, and when I found out that he booked Frontier tickets instead of Delta I just lost it— what about the cookies?!

    The Biscoff spread has become a PROBLEM in my household! We only discovered it about a month ago and can’t get enough of it. We put it on toast, use it as a dip with apples, and now, thanks to you, we will be making cookies πŸ™‚

  • Averie @ Averie Cooks

    Hi Jenna,
    My prayers are with the owner of the bookstore!

    Are you trying to arrange a different book signing in Indianapolis tonight? Or a reader dinner meet-up or something like that?

    • jenna
      October 10, 2012 at 8:48 am

      Unfortunately that was the only bit of free time tonight since I’m tied up with conference responsibilities. I’m super bummed! Maybe coffee tomorrow morning if it works with people’s schedules?

      • Casey

        Just trying to find out for my sister—she lives an hour outside of Indy and was planning to come to the signing, but has to work in the morning so I know coffee wouldn’t work for her.

        If anything changes you’ll tweet or post to the blog, right? πŸ™‚

    I will have to try the cookie butter… On second thought that might be a bad thing if I like it! πŸ™‚

    I’m really sorry to hear about the owner of Big Hat. The store has been a fixture in Broad Ripple for many, many years. I’m not sure where you are staying while you are here, but you should check out Recess (located in Broad Ripple) or Mama Carrolla’s for dinner. GREAT food and atmosphere πŸ™‚

    Safe Travels!

    So obsessed with Biscoff spread. I prefer the crunchy kind though. Wonder how that would work in this recipe. Definitely going on my “to make” list! Thanks πŸ™‚

    Oh man – Cookie Butter looks like dangerous stuff. Sort of like keeping the rainbow chip frosting in the fridge. If I go buy it, I’ll probably wake up tomorrow and feel slightly guilty for the empty container in the trash.

    Perhaps I should walk on the wild side….

    But, this recipe looks like a great way to use up some of that ooey gooey yumminess in a way I can share. Good call on that one. Half a container is completely acceptable, right?

    p.s. I still haven’t joined the skinny jean craze. You’re not THAT behind.

    OH MY GOODNESS, Biscoff will be the death of me. When there’s a jar of it in the house, there is no way I can be stopped. Put it in a chocolate chip cookie and I am done for. Love it!

    Those cookies are amazing! Once, on a flight out to Alaska for a looong back packing trip, the airline gifted us a huge package of those cookies. We saved half for our return. I will always have a special place in my heart for Biscoff cookies. So cheers to you for making a chocolate chip blessed version!

    Sorry about the book signing rescheduling, and I hope the bookstore owner is ok! Still think you should come to Chicago!

    These sound great! I’ve heard of cookie butter on other blogs before, but I’ve never actually tried it. I think the reason being that I’m afraid I’ll like it too much and I know it’s probably not the most figure-friendly food out there. Kind of like nutella πŸ™‚

  • Linda

    Would also like to chime in and say that the TJ Cookie Butter, while good, is no match for the Biscoff. It’s like butter vs. country crock.

I made them vegan (in case any other readers want to know) by subbing 1 T flaxseed meal + 3 Tbsp water per egg, vegan semisweet choc chips and subbed agave for the corn syrup because that’s all I had. They were thicker and didn’t flatten out as much as yours but still awesome! thanks πŸ™‚
