Biscoff Toffee Cookies

Biscoff Toffee Cookies

I must be the last person in bloggie land to bake with Biscoff.  I have read endless raves about it but for some reason had never gotten around to trying it…even though I have had a jar in the cupboard since Spring.  I was looking for a new cookie recipe and saw this one on my friend Chris’s blog, THE CAFE SUCRE FARINE, and decided…what the heck…it’s time to try that stuff.  BTW,  Biscoff stands for “biscuit” plus “coffee” (it’s served with coffee – it’s not coffee flavored).  The concept of cookie butter really didn’t sink in until I tasted this silky smooth creation and discovered that…indeed…it does taste just like cookies.  My family loved this recipe and I know it is one I will make often.  Thanks, Chris, this is a winner.

Biscoff Toffee Cookies

It’s my guess that Biscoff can be used in place of nut butter in just about any recipe.  The toffee bits added lots of flavor and texture to these cookies and the next time I make them I’ll probably toss in a handful of chopped pecans as well.  Chris suggested rolling the uncooked balls of dough in turbinado sugar for some added crunch and flavor and I thought it was the perfect finishing touch.

HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE…and happy baking.

NOTE:   Are you wondering what Biscoff Spread is?  Looks like I’m not the only one who hasn’t tried it.

BISCOFF SPREAD is a peanut butter-like spread made of speculoos cookies. Speculoos are buttery, brown sugar and spice-flavored cookies that are similar to gingersnaps and are popular in the Netherlands (and elsewhere). They’re traditionally served around the Christmas season. The spread is made of speculoos cookies (Biscoff brand, which are widely available) that are turned into a thick spread with the addition of sugar, vegetable oil and other all natural ingredients. The spread is smooth and creamy, with a deep brown sugar, butter and spice flavor to it. In other words, it is a spreadable cookie and it is delicious. It can be found in most major grocery chains and in Walmart.  If you can’t find it close to you it is available in both the creamy and chunky versions on AMAZON.COM.  Try it…you’ll love it!

    Cathy, these cookies look so good! I made some scones with the Biscoff spread last year and loved them. I guess Trader Joe’s makes a knock off version, called Cookie Spread. I would like to try theirs, too, to compare.

    These look so wonderful. The problem is that if I bring home a jar of Biscoff spread one afternoon it is usually gone before the next sundown. I guess I’ll have to start planning better because this stuff is gooooood! I can’t wait to make these cookies.

      Hi Lea Ann. It’s comforting to know I’m not the last person to find out about this yummy spread. I sometimes feel kind of out of it since I’m usually trying something for the first time that others’ and been using for months. Wow, I can’t wait to read details of your trip. It sounds like you had a fabulous time.

    I’ve seen that dreamy stuff on the shelves at T.J’s but never bought it because I know just how good those little speculoos cookies are from there, but these are over the top Cathy!

    these cookies look like they melt in your mouth…I have never heard of this stuff…the only Biscoff I know of is the cookies that Delta serves on their flights….Where do I find it…??

    • says

      Hi Sue – Biscoff spread is made from those same cookies and I know, if you like them, you will love this spread. It is in our local grocery chains here and at Walmart. You are in for a treat if you buy some.

    Biscoff is my new favorite thing and when I saw Chris’s recipe, I had to try it immediately. You are right about these cookies being a real winner. I’m just mad because the hubby ate more of them than I did, including the last one!!!!

      Hi Joanne – Thank you so much for visiting today. The brickle toffee bits are made by Heath and I found them in one of our chain big box stores. I hope you give Biscoff spread a try if you can find it. I think it is going to be a fun new product to use in some extra special recipes.

    Too funny! I have on jar of Biscoff and one jar of Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter spread. I haven’t used either, yet. I’m paralyzed, trying to figure out what to make– ice cream? Frosting? Cake? Pie? Cookies? Yes, cookies! These look so good that I have to make them! I love crunchy sugar on my cookies.

  18. Nancy Hoffmann says

    Never heard of Biscoff but I love toffee so this recipe appeals to me. I’m definitely shopping for a jar of Biscoff Spread.

  19. Jamie says

    Actually, no you are not! They started selling Biscoff spread in French super markets well before they started selling it in the US and I was so tempted… but never got around to it. I think it must be perfect in cookies! You are going to make me do it, aren’t you Cathy? The cookies look too darn good!

    I’m laughing at the comments…. and must say: no, I’m the last one! I have heard about it though. There’s a Walmart near me and I’ve been checking there for Gingerbread Oreos, which haven’t come in yet. So I’ll get some Biscoff next trip. Fabulous looking cookies!

    Cathy, I’ve never baked with biscoff yet . . . it doesn’t last while it’s even in the jar from which we dip into and eat straight out of on a spoon! Perfect addition to cookies!!!
