Biscoff spread is a product that took off seemingly overnight that more and more people fall in love with when they taste it. The spread is also known as cookie butter and, as the name implies, it is essentially a spreadable version of speculoos, a popular Dutch cookie that tastes like brown sugar and spice. The spread is delicious straight out of the jar and some fans never get further with it than the spoon that they used to take their first taste, but the spread is a very versatile product and in The Biscoff Cookie & Spread Cookbook: Irresistible Cupcakes, Cookies, Confections, and More, you’ll find many recipes that turn it into a wide variety of delicious desserts.
The book opens with a brief introduction before jumping into the recipes. The recipes are divided into several chapters” Breakfast Sweets, Cookies, Bars & Brownies, Cakes & Confectioners, and Frostings & Fillings. This range should have you covered for just about any baking occasion, from a bake sale to a birthday party. The recipes range from complex cakes to very simple creations, such as a Biscoff-filled apple sandwich that is sure to be a hit with kids. The recipes all showcase the spread, making sure that its addictive flavor comes through in every dish. The recipes are very clearly presented and easy to follow, and they are illustrated with photos that clearly show what the finished product should look like (and they look mouthwatering).
To make these recipes, you’ll need to have some Biscoff spread on hand. The spread is available at many grocery stores and at import stores, such as Cost Plus World Market. Trader Joe’s also sells its own cookie butter (labeled simply “Cookie Butter”) that can be used in these recipes, as well. Both creamy and crunchy – with bits of cookie mixed in – versions of the spread exist, so feel free to play around with them as you give these recipes a try.
