I love No-Bake Cookies. Except I don’t call them No-Bake, I call them Preacher Cookies, because, well, that’s just what we Southern girls call them. Preacher Cookies.
Your typical Preacher Cookie is cocoa, peanut butter and oats. And while that is incredibly good, and hits the spot in under 5 minutes, one can possibly grow tired of all that deliciousness and crave something just a little different. Enter Biscoff Spread.
I stumbled onto Biscoff Spread one weekend when I wondered into Krogers, and a cute little lady encouraged Seven and I to take a taste. I was hooked. Imagine a Biscoff Cookie (you know, gingerbready goodness), suspended in a state of cream. It has the consistency of peanut butter, and is fantastic on apples, crackers, pretzels, or a silver spoon. It is flat out YUM.
I loved it so much that I tweeted the fine folks at Biscoff and wouldn’t you know it…they are good people! They kindly sent me a Biscoff sampler, complete with more Biscoff Spread and some of their cookies. Lucky me!! I wanted to create something in return, but I didn’t want the flavor to get lost in a complicated creation…and therefore these cookies were born.
What resulted is a sweet and rich cookie, chewy in texture and absolutely irresistible.
Give them a try!
makes 24 cookies
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- pinch of salt
- 3 cups instant oatmeal (I prefer Quaker)
- 1/2 cup Biscoff Spread
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla
- 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
In a larger saucepot, combine butter, sugar, milk and salt. Bring to a rolling boil until 210-215 degrees, or, approximately 1 to 11/2 minutes at a full boil. Remove from heat.
Immediately add in all remaining ingredients, stirring until well combined. Working quickly, drop heaping tablespoons onto wax or parchment paper and allow to cool.
Serve and enjoy!
Have you tried the new spread? Don’t you just love it?? Whether you have or haven’t, you are in for a treat. Biscoff would like to send ONE of YOU a Sample package to try it and love it for yourself! All you need to do is leave me a comment here, with an ide of how you think you would use it. ON pancakes? On toast? In a cookie, a cake, a tart? Maybe you’d just sit an eat it while shopping on Amazon for Old Gringo Boots? (That’s my latest addiction…don’t ask me why, but I think I need a pair.) So – leave me a comment!!
On Another Note…
Sorry for the lack of posting last week, folks…you may or may not have noticed, my blog was attacked. it is still in the process of getting back up fully, but I have been lucky to have a good friend work programming magic on it over the past few days. I still have a way to go but I am so thankful for all of his help! And THANK YOU for coming back! Since I am in the midst of a rebuild, is there anything you think my site needs? Something you would like to see here? Now’s the time to tell me!
Also – to any of you out there affected by the hurricane – I hope in all sincerity that you are okay. Being here on the western side of Virginia, all we saw was a bit of wind…so nothing here. But I know many of you live on the coast, from NC to Maine – and I do worry about you. I’ve tried to check in as much as possible on you on Facebook, but…some of you aren’t talking. Everyone okay?
Until next time kids, have a good one! And stay tuned – I’ve got a great giveaway coming up later in the week – think ICE CREAM!
