Have you discovered Biscoff? If not, you're in for a delicious surprise ..........
........... even if you've tried this yummy epicurean delight, you're still in for a wonderful surprise, just keep reading ......
While packaged cookies are not on my favorite food list, Biscoff cookies are definitely an exception. I first discovered them on an American Airlines flight . When the attendants served beverages, they also offered small red and white packages of cookies. One bite and I was smitten; crispy, crunchy bursting with cinnamon-clove-ginger flavor - amazing! You can imagine my delight last fall when I discovered them at my local grocery store. I've found that I have to discipline myself from purchasing them very often as they disappear quite quickly around here!
Several months ago I discovered that they are now making a spread, almost like peanut butter but with the exact flavor of the yummy Biscoff cookies - no wonder, as reading the ingredient list, I learned that the creamy spread is actually made from crushed Biscoff cookies! I've been experimenting with this spread for a few months now and everything I've tried it in has been spectacular and received rave reviews. I haven't posted any of these recipes on The Café because I like my recipes to include ingredients that are readily available to my readers.
Guess what? They are now carrying Biscoff Spread at Super Walmart. You'll find the red and white labeled jars in the peanut butter section. You'll definitely want to pick some up and make a batch of Biscoff Oatmeal Crispies - these homemade cookies made from Biscoff Spread are amazing; crispy at the edges, chewy in the center, loaded with fabulous flavor that's ............... well, it's hard to describe how ridiculously delicious they really are...... but don't be surprised if they end up on your all-time favorite cookie list too!

Biscoff Oatmeal Crispies

1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

1 large egg
½ cup Biscoff Spread, I've been finding this in the peanut butter section of larger grocery stores, also available at Super Walmart.
1. Melt ½ stick butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add oats, and cook, stirring, until toasted, 5 to 7 minutes. Spread oat mixture on a parchment-lined baking sheet; let cool.
2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350˚F. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and 1 teaspoon salt. Beat together remaining stick butter and the sugars with a mixer on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy. Add egg, and beat until combined. Add Biscoff Spread , and beat on medium speed until well combined.
3. Add oat mixture and beat on low speed until combined. Add flour mixture, and beat until combined.
4. Roll dough into 1 ½" balls. Place cookies 1" apart on 2 parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Try hard to control yourself and let them cool.
