Overview

Biscoff spread is a creamy, spreadable version of the traditional Dutch and Belgian spéculoos cookies (called biscoff cookies or biscuits in the U.S.). The slightly caramelized taste is addictive.

Add it to cream cheese frosting to give a special touch to carrot cake, carrot cupcakes, zucchini bread or anything that can benefit from a touch of ginger and cinnamon.
