Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies

If you’re one of those people that haven’t tried Biscoff spread yet, now is definitely the time! Never heard of Biscoff spread before? Well, unfortunately you’re not alone. A few years ago it was only sold in specialty stores or online. Now you can find it in many grocery stores around the country. Since Biscoff spread was nowhere to be found in Peoria, I had been buying jars from Trader Joe’s whenever I would make it back to Columbus, Ohio. The other day while walking through my local grocery store I spotted some! I was so excited that ended up buying a few jars. As soon as I got home I opened up the jar and ate at least 2 spoonfuls! The spread is smooth and creamy, with a deep brown sugar, butter and spice flavor to it (it’s actually made of speculoos cookies). If you’re able to resist eating it by the spoonful, then you need to share your secret! I have no self control! ;)

I have had these cookies bookmarked to make for quite a long time, but never got around to making them since we would devour the jar before it could even make it into the cookies! Oops! ;) But now since I know my local grocery store sells it, bring on the biscoff recipes! These cookies are unbelievable! Crispy edges and chewy centers with a deep brown sugar and spice flavor. You need these cookies in your life…trust me!
