Main Ingredients

The recipe ingredients used to make Biscoff butter cookies laid out on a table.

There are no hard-to-find ingredients in this recipe. If you already have cookie butter spread I bet you already have the rest of what you need. Here are some of the key ingredients:

  • Biscoff cookie butter: The main ingredient. This sweet, buttery spread gives the cookies their unique spiced flavor. This Belgian spread is made from crushed Biscoff cookies, so if you love those you will love the cookie butter. If you substitute peanut butter or another cookie butter they will look similar and have the same texture, but they will taste completely different.
  • Shortening: For texture. Shortening melts at a higher temperature than butter and also gets the cookie to rise up more, giving them a lighter, softer taste and texture. Butter would work here too, but the cookies will spread out more during cooking and not be as light.
  • Brown sugar: Adds the perfect amount of sweetness. Brown sugar works better than white in this recipe because it suits the warm, earthy spice flavor in the cookie butter.
  • Milk: To help with texture. You only need a little milk to make the dough soft. Use any milk you want; whole, oat, soy, or any other type.
  • Baking soda: To make the cookies rise. Baking soda releases carbon dioxide to lift the dough and result in light, soft cookies.

Instructions Overview

I told you this recipe was easy, but let's find out just how easy these Biscoff butter cookies are to make!

First of all, you can mix the cookie butter with the shortening and sugar. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt, then add half to the cookie butter mixture. Once it's well combined, you can mix in the other half.

Divide the dough into 18 balls then arrange them on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Press them down with a fork then bake for about 14 minutes or until done.

Common Questions

What is the flavor of Biscoff cookies?

These cookies are flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and allspice, along with caramel. They have a unique and special flavor.

What does Biscoff spread taste like?

Since Biscoff butter is made primarily with crushed cookies, it tastes like those little cookies we all know and love. Expect a warm spicy taste and more than a hint of caramel.

Is Biscoff and cookie butter the same?

They are similar and interchangeable in this recipe. The cookie butter from Trader Joe's tastes a lot like the Biscoff spread so you can use either one for Biscoff butter cookies.

Do you need to refrigerate cookie butter?

No, it's fine kept at room temperature. If your household is like mine, it won't last more than a couple of days anyway because it's so good!

Chopnotch Tips

  • Got some leftover cookie butter? Try it as a dip for apple slices, mix a spoonful into your favorite muffin recipe, or add it to a milkshake or smoothie.
  • Add a few drops of vanilla or a pinch of cinnamon to the cookie dough for a bolder flavor if you want.
  • You can keep them in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days. Alternatively, keep them refrigerated for up to a week or freeze them for up to three months. Yet another idea is to freeze the unbaked dough balls for up to three months and bake them straight from the freezer.
  • Enjoy them with a cup of coffee or use them to top a cake or cheesecake.

    Can I use butter instead of shortening?

    • Hi Skylar! Yes, a one-for-one swap works fine in this recipe if you'd like to use butter instead of shortening. Please note when using butter, the cookies may spread out a bit more and they might not be as light, but they will still be delicious!
