Biscoff Cookie Butter Cookies

I’m sharing a recipe for super simple yet totally irresistible chewy cookies that only takes about 45 minutes from start to finish – Biscoff Butter Cookies.

These caramelized, cinnamon-sugar cookies are crispy on the outside while chewy and smooth inside. Even better, they’re topped with melted Biscoff spread and sea salt for a sweet and salty flavor combo you can’t get enough of.

The ingredients are simple – butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. But the key ingredient that makes these cookies stand out both in flavor and fragrance is the Biscoff cookie butter.

The blend of gingerbread spice cookie flavors combined with milky caramel makes this store-bought cookie butter adds such a delicious layer of flavor to these homemade cookies.

How long do they last?

Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. To freeze, seal them in an airtight container or freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.

Can I make them in advance? 

Yes, you can! Prep the dough up to 3 days in advance. Just keep it refrigerated until ready to bake. Before baking let dough come to room temperature for 10-15 minutes before baking.

Can I substitute Biscoff spread with other cookie butters? 

If you don’t have Biscoff spread, you can substitute Nutella or peanut butter. Speculoos cookie butter is very similar so it’s a great substitute.

Tips for No Leftovers

  • Start with room temperature butter for easier mixing.
  • Trader Joe cookie butter is very similar to Biscoff and is a great substitute.
  • Use a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer for easier prep.
  • These cookies retain their shape so leave as is or flatter for a thinner cookie.
  • You can leave off the Biscoff drizzle and sea salt if desired.
  • Don’t over mix the dough. This can lead to dense cookies. Mix the batter until lightly combined.
