Like so many of you, I have cookie exchanges and many other holiday gatherings in December…and these events usually require me to bake up something outrageously sweet. This time of year, I spend a LOT of time perusing Danielle’s blog, Hugs and Cookies XOXO. Her site is the epitome of baking decadence…and she is a constant source of recipe inspiration. I found the perfect recipe in Danielle’s Biscoff Cookies…but her version had dried blueberries and white chocolate chips. I tweaked them just slightly and was thrilled with the results.
These biscoff cookies may not win any beauty contests, but the amazing combination of flavors and textures will win you over. They are soft and chewy with subtle spice cookie undertones from the Biscoff Spread, plus the dried tart cherries and melty white chocolate chunks push these over the top. Feel free to use your favorite dried fruit…chopped, dried apricots would be incredible…and the chocolate chip or chunk flavor of your choice. Each month Danielle and I cook up a recipe from each other’s blog…you can find all our recipes with a search using the #TwoSweetiePies hashtag. And be sure to follow Danielle on her social media sites and blog:
Thanks, Danielle, for another winner! xoxoPrint
