Spiced Biscoff Sandwich Cookies

by Megan on August 27, 2012

I’m a Biscoff bully. Believe it.

Since purchasing Speculoos Cookie Butter I’ve pretty much made everyone who stops by my house try it. There’s a three spoonful minimum. It’s a fact, and it’s ok. You see, it tastes like spicy graham cracker goodness. It’s my dream butta’.

It’s just delicious and confusing. It’s just the kind of thing that you can’t get enough of. It’s puzzling and awesome at the same time.

And it’s thoughtful! It makes these sandwich cookies a breeze. It pairs well with the spicy goodness that makes up these little wafers. And it matches perfectly. So there’s that!

Spiced Biscoff Sandwich Cookies (makes about 31 sandwiches)
Recipe adapted from Serious Eats

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 t baking soda
  • 1 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1 t cloves
  • 1 t ginger
  • 1/2 t nutmeg
  • heaping 1/2 t kosher salt
  • 4 T unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 T orange juice
  • 1 T orange juice
  • cookie butter/biscoff for sandwiching
P.S. Follow your heart with the spices. Use more/less of each depending on which ones are your favorite.

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, spices, and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add molasses and orange juice/zest. Add dry ingredients and beat until dough comes together. Divide dough in half, pat into disks, and chill for 3 hours.
  3. Preheat your oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet or two with parchment paper.
  4. Roll out chilled dough until 1/8 inch thick. Cut out using your favorite 1 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Bake until dry and darkened, about 7 minutes.
  5. Cool cookies on baking sheet for 5 minutes then cool completely on a wire rack. Sandwich about a teaspoon of cookie butter or biscoff spread between two cookies. Repeat with all of them. Serve!

ladylike drinks and breakfasts. (And cookie baking of course!)

I love Biscoff. I make fudge with it and give it to people to try to promote my blog. They go nuts for it. It’s my new favorite thing, and I’m kinda obsessed with it. Love your green nail polish too :)

Cookie butter in between cookies? It’s like cookie inception.

That first picture is stunning! I’ve never heard of biscoff before. It sounds insanely delicious though, so I must get my hands on some ASAP.

Thanks Charlotte! I bet you’d love it! I bought it the Biscoff aka Speculoos Cookie Butter at Trader Joe’s!

Those cookies are AMAZING. And I know this, because I tried them as soon as they were cool enough to put cookie butter on them.

Also, ladylike drinks are amazing, and even better when they match your outfit.

I’m extremely intrigued by this cookie butter you speak of! Sounds like trouble!

It is totally trouble. Trouble that you can eat by the spoonful. :)

Oh man, I bought a jar or two of TJ’s cookie butter last fall and then I took a break from the danger zone. It’s about time I get back into it. Cookie sandwiches (and girly weekends) are the best!

I bought TJ’s Cookie Butter a few months back and had no idea what to do with it… thanks for giving me an excuse to buy some more!

I, too, would force everyone to try it. I would watch their faces turn from skeptical, to confused, to delighted in seconds. That alone was worth it.

I pretty much just eat it with a spoon. :) This was my first time incorporating it into anything. But! You should totally make these! The cookie butter is the bff to the spicy cookie.
