A different kind of Chocolate Chip cookie

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Its been a while since I last posted so this is long overdue!
On my Instagram account, I saw a post for an article for the Best Blogs to Follow. They of course were all baking related, I mean c’mon its me!
I get inspiration from everywhere, a pattern on a wall, shoes, others creations and also my own imagination. One of the blogs was called Butter Baking and she had some great photos of her creations.
As I was going through the photos on Instagram I saw one of a chocolate chip cookie that looks like the kind I love…chewy on the inside, crispy on the outside. So I clicked for the recipe and was surprised at one of the ingredients, speculoos or cookie butter. I was intrigued. I had never heard of it before but I wanted to know more.
I imagined it was going to be similar to Nutella and man was I so freaking right. It IS like Nutella in the sense that you want to eat it with a spoon right out of the jar. So dang good. I am not sure how I did not know about it before. After doing some research on it I learned its more of a European or Australian ingredient, although I saw that Trader Joe’s sells it.

I ordered my jar of Biscoff online from Amazon. See the item below.

I set out to try it and I really loved the results, this might be my new favorite cookie! I tried it both after mixing it and baking and after freezing the dough and baking and loved them both ways.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

  2. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in the egg, yolk and vanilla until combined. Add in the Biscoff cookie spread until incorporated.
  4. On a low speed, add in the flour,  baking soda, cornstarch and salt, until just combined. Add the chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop or spoon (tablespoon) balls of dough on the lined trays.
  6. Bake for 9 – 10 minutes, until just golden around the edges.
  7. Allow to cool.

Makes 20 cookies.
