After scouring the entire Trader Joe’s store in my hometown of Mount Pleasant, SC…I was sad to see that they were entirely out of the Cookie Butter that seems to have gone viral on Instagram recently.
So, I got the next best thing…Biscoff Spread (which is the same thing, actually)!
I couldn’t wait to bake with it, so my sister and I improvised a recipe. It took a couple of tries, but I think we made an excellent little cookie!
It’s more like a lace cookie if you’ve ever tried one (here’s the best recipe)…thin, caramelized, and crunchy with a pop of chocolate in every cookie.
If I make them again, I would use mini chocolate chips, so there would be more throughout the cookie. 🙂

These look incredibly addicting! Biscoff and cookie butter are too good:-)
I don’t have a Trader Joe’s so a little piece of me died inside every time I saw one of those said Instagram photos, so I finally went out and bought a jar of Biscoff. I need to do something with it other than dunk my entire hand in the jar every 2 hours, so thanks for the idea!
Ahhh yum! I might try these with Nutella…my sister gave me a GIANT 26-oz jar for Christmas, and I’ve gotta do something with it. 😀
Oh wow, these look so wonderfully crisp and crunchy!
Ah! I just read on the TJ’s site that the cookie butter was coming back! Apparently it was really popular. Well, duh.
What a great way to use the Biscoff spread! Happy New Year Caroline 🙂
I love me some Biscoff! The cookies look Yummy!
I had never heard of Biscoff spread, but it is delicious! We loved these cookies! Logan brought them to a *dreadful* meeting, and they cheered everyone up.
Oooh. I’m a Biscoff spread junkie. I put it in everything that uses peanut butter. And those look awesome! I’ve never had or heard of lace cookies so I’ll look into that now.
There’s something about flourless cookies that I just adore. It’s like saying “Enough fluff, get to the point” only in cookie form : )
That’s it. I clearly need to get on the Biscoff bandwagon!
Oh my gosh, I’ve been hiding a jar of Biscoff from myself, because I didn’t want to waste it by using it foolishly, but I think it’s going to have to come out so I can make these cookies!
How did I miss all these pictures on Instagram of Cookie Butter from Trader Joe’s?? I’ve never had Biscoff spread but based on all these comments I need to!!
I just didn’t know what the main ingredient was – so I googled around and found this: “Biscoff 57% (wheat flour, sugar, vegetable oil (contains one or more of soybean oil, sunflower oil, canola oil, palm oil), soy flour, brown sugar, leavening (sodium bicarbonate), salt, cinnamon), canola oil, sugar, emulsifier (soy lecithin), citric acid. Contains wheat, soy.
