So I’m way too excited about this.
For those of you who have never enjoyed the miracle that is biscoff (it’s okay I still love you), let me bring you up to speed. Biscoff/Speculoos cookies are these buttery, spiced biscuits with the perfect crunch and a slight nuttiness. They’re like ginger snaps, but not really because these are a million times better.
Perhaps you’ve heard of the infamous culinary innovation that cookie butter? Yup. It’s made from these beauties. That stuff is exactly like crack except you can spread it on stuff. (And it also has the added bonus of not being crack.)
So, like anyone living with starving student syndrome, I made cookie butter at home. Then I made it again. And again. And now I made these cookies with 31 calories and 0.3 grams of carbs. This is what biscoff does to you and it’s beautiful.
Once upon a time some genius had the glorious epiphany to serve biscoff cookies on planes. Honestly, these babies are the only reason I put up with flying. I mean there’s the whole ‘getting to the destination thing’, but we know it’s really about the cookies. #priorities
There had to be a reason I payed $100 less per ticket with this budget airline, and it became rather obvious after the first hour of waiting on the runway. Air conditioning is scarce, punctuality is out the window that doesn’t actually open, and revolution is brewing in the air of us passengers consigned to the zoo plane.
Although these giant corporate airlines defy gravity and sub-par peanuts, one of their main concerns is not getting sued by irked passengers. They have a fleet of employees dedicated to this purpose.
Within this fleet, it is some elite person’s job to appease angry mobs… such as the one I was sitting in the middle of.
Okay elite mob appeaser airline godfather person, what do you do when your passengers are making torches out of skymall magazines and sporks?
Give them freakishly delicious cookies.
Whoever this person is, they deserve a raise. Make ’em an offer they can’t refuse.
If you only chowed down of biscoff at 30,000 feet, could you serve them fresh with milk action shots?
I think not.
Alright, I won’t make you wait on the metaphorical runway anymore. Let’s take off and make some cookies!
First, you whip up a crazy simple cookie dough and then roll it out.
Yes I agree. Rolling out dough is the worst. It’s right up there with food babies (congrats, it’s a burger!) and jeans that have buttons instead of zippers. (Honestly, who came up with that?)
Worry not for rolling, dear people! All you have to do is stick the dough between two pieces of parchment paper, roll the whole thing flat with your rolling pin, and let it chill out for a bit.
This recipe is for a crazy low carb almond meal version, but I also developed a low fat whole wheat version if that’s more your groove.
Oh, and I ate the whole batch in two days. You have been warned.
