First off, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
Secondly, I hope the title of these cookies alone is enough to convince you to try them. Because, I mean, c`mon…pumpkin + Biscoff? It`s magical, people. 🙂 I have yet to meet someone who doesn`t like this incredible Biscoff/speculoos cookie spread. I`m sure I`m not the only one who has this cookie spread as a staple in the pantry (along with crunchy peanut butter and Nutella)! I love my Biscoff crunchy, just like how I like my peanut butter. Of course, you can use whichever variety you have. Hehe.
I LOVE Biscoff in desserts. I incorporate them in ice cream, muffins, cookies, and even granola bars. It`s also pumpkin season and I thought the combination would yield a wonderful cookie and I gave it a try. (Spoiler: I was right. LOL.)
Then, I decided, why not amp up these cookies some more? Like…make them pumpkin biscoff snickerdoodles? Why not stuff them with candy? What about white chocolate chips? The ideas just kept on coming! So, I tried them all.
I`m not sure if you know, but pumpkin snickerdoodles are a thing. I don`t want to admit that I`m one to jump on bandwagons…but if it involves yummy food, jump, I will. I really do enjoy the pumpkin and white chocolate combination as well, which is why I made some. Then, I proceeded to make them into pumpkin Biscoff white chocolate snickerdoodles, since you, know, it`s a thing…(Okay, it`s not, but it can be!)
I stuffed some of the cookies with chopped up Twix and Snickers since Target had a sale on them. Who am I to deny a CANDY SALE? I seriously have NO restraint when it comes to candy. Zip. None.
These are multi-way cookies since you can do so much with them! Here are the combinations I made:
– Pumpkin Biscoff Cookies
– Pumpkin Biscoff Snickerdoodles (bottom cookie in animation above)
– White Chocolate Pumpkin Biscoff Cookies
– White Chocolate Pumpkin Biscoff Snickerdoodles (top cookie in animation above)
– Twix/Snickers-Stuffed Pumpkin Biscoff Cookies (middle cookie in animation above)
– Twix/Snickers-Stuffed Pumpkin Biscoff Snickerdoodles
If you want to go all out and stuff them with Nutella, or use chocolate chips, or drizzle some melted chocolate over them, go for it!
The other great thing about these cookies, aside from the fact that they`re amazingly awesome, is how long they stay soft and chewy. The pumpkin, Biscoff, and brown sugar really give these cookies that thick and chewy texture. You can make them days in advance and they`ll keep well.
You might have leftover trick or treat candies, which is a great excuse to bake up something and sneak those cute little chocolate candies inside cookies! These cookies are sweet, so pair them with a tall glass of milk and enjoy. Have fun with these! 🙂
