Homemade Biscoff Cookies

Homemade Biscoff Cookies are crunchy, buttery, aromatic, and just the right amount of sweet! If you’ve ever wondered what kind of cookie goes into Speculoos or Cookie Butter, I’ll teach you how to make them!  

Hi Bold Bakers!
One of my favorite things to share is my recipes for things you folks think you can only buy at the store or pick up at a bakery. My recipe for Homemade Biscoff Cookies is one of the best! Biscoff cookies are a classic tea cookie known for its buttery texture and lovely spice. For those of you that may have never had them before, they are THE cookie behind Speculoos or cookie butter. Yeah, they’re those cookies and, when homemade, they’re heaven.
The other thing that makes my recipe for Homemade Biscoff Cookies so great is that I show you how to make them look just like the ones you get in a box. All you need is this cookie stamp and a bit of time. After baking these Homemade Biscoff Cookie beauties are so lovely and aromatic. I love these on their own, ground into crumbs and used in my No-Bake Cookie Butter Cheesecake or of course made into my Homemade Cookie Butter!

What is the Flavor of a Biscoff Cookie?

Biscoff Cookies are like delicate shortbread cookies with a whole lot of spice and a deep caramel flavor. These cookies start with butter and flour, then with the addition of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves, they are transformed into Homemade Biscoff Cookies. All of the above make them best friends with a cup of coffee.

Is Biscoff the same as Speculoos?

Yes and no, but yes! Speculoos is the cookie butter made from Biscoff cookies. So Biscoff cookies are the cookies, and when made into a sweet spread or cookie butter, it then becomes Speculoos.

How long do Biscoff Cookies Last?

Store the cookies in an air-tight container at cool room temperature for up to 10 days. Also, you can freeze the unbaked, raw dough in the freezer for up to 8 weeks.
