That dang Biscoff got me again. I already bought a jar of it a few months ago and made Biscoff swirl gelato and Biscoff cupcakes with swiss meringue buttercream. When I was at the grocery store a few weeks ago, it started calling my name. “Buy meeeeee… Buy meeeeee…” I tried ignoring it, but the force was too strong. So I gave in and bought another jar.
I used half the jar to fill my vanilla bean macarons and needed to find a good recipe to use up the other half. I opened up my Google Reader and remembered that one of the blogs I follow, Kirbie’s Cravings, featured a bunch of Biscoff recipes. I found this recipe for chewy Biscoff chocolate chip cookies and thought it would be a hit.
I followed Kirbie’s advice and decreased the amount of sugar. I omitted 2 Tablespoons of both brown and white sugar so the cookies wouldn’t be too sweet. The cookies baked up just like a regular chocolate chip cookie and had a very subtle Biscoff flavor to them. In fact, the Biscoff wasn’t as pronounced as I thought they were going to be. The next time I make these, I will add more Biscoff so the flavor comes through more. I would increase the Biscoff to about 3/4 cup and keep the reduced amount of sugar. But, the cookies were so soft and chewy and maintained this texture throughout the week.
I gave some cookies to our neighbors since they’ve been so kind to us (the mom crocheted a skirt, headband and scarf for Addison!). I found out shortly after delivering the cookies that they were gone in about 2 seconds flat. According to the younger son, his older brother “grabbed two handfuls” of cookies and disappeared upstairs. He, his mom and his dad had to fight for the rest of them. I’d say that this would qualify as a good recipe to keep – what do you think?
