We still have our AC off and are able to open up the house, so it's a nice time to bake. I am a big fan of shortbread cookies, as I'm sure you can see by the cookie recipes that I have on the blog. I guess because they are not all that sweet, but you gotta love the butter! And I am a big fan of the Biscoff cookies, you know the kind you get on the airline flights. Such a nice light crisp texture with cinnamon and spices. Perfect with tea or to dunk in your coffee.
I found a knock off recipe that is pretty close, if not spot on it was still delightful to eat.
(Slightly adapted from)The Art Of The Cookie
2 cup.. all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (I used Vietnamese Cinnamon )
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a small bowl, whisk the flour, spices,baking soda and salt together; set aside.
In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on low speed, cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar together. Add the vanilla extract.
Gradually blend the flour mixture into the butter mixture.
