Hell-llo my Love Bakes Good Cakes Peeps! It's me, Kim, from Soliloquy Of Food & Such. Today I am sharing Biscoff Butter Cookies. Biscoff Butter Cookies are a great alternative to traditional peanut butter cookies. They are sweet and salty and loaded with all those good Speculoos cookie spices. I know what you're thinking: Oh, the IRONY!!!! Yes. I took a product, essentially comprised of pureed cookies and oil, and then MADE cookies using said product.
Biscoff has a very similar consistency than that of peanut butter; I simply swapped Biscoff for peanut butter to make these. I even pressed the fork into the cookie dough so it would lend that same classic look. Although the cookies puff up and lose the fork impressions when baking in the oven, as soon as they cool and settle back down, the fork prints magically reappear. These cookies are crunchy around the edges and soft and chewy in the middle.
I've shared my cookie obsession/dependency with you all before....so you now how me likes ma cookies! I opted to make these large....because let's face it... size does matter! Each cookie is made from 2 TBS of dough and results in a GINORMOUS 4 inch-round Cooook-kkkkie!!!
Biscoff Butter Cookies, adapted from Crisco.com
makes 18 large cookies
3/4 cup Biscoff Cookie Butter
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup brown sugar, packed
3 TBS milk
1 large egg
1 3/4 cup flour, scooped and leveled
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Heat oven to 375º, line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl combine Biscoff, shortening and brown sugar - beat until fluffy. Add egg and mix until well combined.
In a small bowl, whisk dry ingredients. Pour half of the dry ingredients into the Biscoff mixture and mix until just combined, then add the remaining half of the dry ingredients, and again, mix until just combined.
Scoop out 2 TBS of dough and roll into a balls, place 6" apart on lined cookie sheets. Press with a fork in a criss cross fashion (you may have to flour the fork to prevent from sticking). Bake for 14-15 minutes until just golden brown on the edges. Cool for 3 minutes on cookie sheet, then transfer to cooling rack for 5 minutes until set.
These cookies are best if eaten when cooled.
