Chewy Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies

I made Carol's Biscoff Cookies awhile ago. Our neighbor Jean happened to come over as I was taking the cookies out of the oven. I insisted she try a few and take some back to her hubby, Jim.

Jean checks the blog and checked out the recipe. She made them for her church bake sale so I'm thinkin she really liked them.

We are going back to NY soon and we are finally getting together with Jean and Jim for dinner. I didn't want to make Carol's Biscoff cookies since Jean made them, I wanted to give them a sample of another Biscott cookie. 

This is another recipe from Carol and Barbara Bakes.  Usually I adapt a thing of two but didn't change a thing.

3/4 C all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 C butter, softened
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 C biscoff spread
1 1/2 C old fashion oatmeal
1 C raisins

In a bowl, add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

In another bowl, which I used my kitchen aid I added the butter and both sugars. Cream until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla and biscoff and beat until smooth.

Add your dry ingredients that are in your other bowl to the butter/biscoff mixture. Also add the oatmeal and the raisins.

Once mixed put the bowl in the fridge for 30-45 mins.

Preheat oven to 350 and spray cookies sheet with pam and next time I'm going to use parchment paper.

Add rounded tablespoon and place 2 inches apart.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. The center will be soft.

THIS is important- let the cookies cool on the cookies sheet for 3-5 minutes. You know the first batch I pulled out I didn't do that. Those cookies didn't make it over to Jeans.

Once they cooled for those 3-5 mins. put them on a wire rack for additional cooling.

Note: The recipe was my first recipe to be featured on another blog. Thank you Close to Home!

Carol adapted the recipe from Barbara Bakes. Barbara's recipe  Chunky Biscoff White Chocolate is on my must make list.

  2. Aren't these cookies the best? We loved them too. And what a cute story about Jean and Jim and their son........Dad sure took care of the situation didn't he? Hahahahaha. Sounds like a hit all around. Your cookies look DELICIOUS! I know Bob will say the first thing he wants me to bake when he deems it safe to eat dessert is oatmeal raisin cookies-those are his favorite-and a little Biscoff in the mix sure doesn't hurt!

    Thanks Linda-and a big thanks to Barbara @ Barbara Bakes for sharing her recipe,

  3. These cookies look so good. I think I tasted Biscoff once and it was good. Carol, you sure must be a great cook also. Your hubby is lucky. Linda makes me so hungry with all her photos of the food she made. I do very little cooking these days, since I don't have anyone to cook for, but I sure like looking and reading the recipes. Years ago, cookbooks were my favorite book to read. I am going to keep this recipe in mind when I need to make something for a party.

    Linda enjoy your dinner with Jean and Jim. They are going to miss you when you go back to NY.

  8. Your cookies look perfect - crisp on the outside and tender, chewy in the middle. I'll have to try them with raisins.
