I recently learned what a biscoff cookie tastes like – and they are to die for! They are light, buttery, crispy and great with coffee. When I found a recipe to follow from cupcakeproject.com, I also learned that Biscoff stands for “biscuit” plus “coffee” (it’s served with coffee – it’s not coffee flavored).
If you are wondering what it looks like, amazon has them here. Even though I didn’t have a rolling pin, or cookie cutters, I was determined to make these from scratch. I used a long rum bottle to roll and I used my daughter’s play cookie cutters from her kitchen!
I also did not have all spice on hand, so I used fennel seed. While it is not a substitute, the biscuit came out quite tasty and reminiscent of biscotti – but better!
