bake: Biscoff Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookie Crumble

While I was dreaming (I mean, taking a shower) about where my mind was headed this week for themes…clarity suddenly arose!  I decided to go with “EXPERIMENTATION” for my weekly theme :)

Quite a broad subject, I know, so broad it could really encompass my entire blog.  Every DIY, kiddo craft, recipe, etc. is really an experiment.  But I thought I’d break the barrier & REALLY experiment, like let my hair down (well, have you seen how long my hair is?  What I really meant is tie it up very tightly – bun style ;)  That’s how you know I’m about to get serious.  If all of a sudden it looks like I’m sporting a short pixie cut, well, yeah, that’s my “game hair” – let’s get down & dirty!

Okay, back on track, Melissa…on with an experimental recipe today!

So, I am not a huge fan of Nutella.  I know, I’m an awful, AWFUL person – what is wrong with my taste buds?!!  I mean, if I was starving and it was just me & a jar of Nutella, I’d eat it, but I’m not going out of my way to spread it on my toast!

With that being said, I’ve often wondered as I passed it in my grocery store drooling, how would it be to make a cookie with Biscoff spread?


This led me to this experiment!

Behold, “Biscoff Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookie Crumble!”

It’s a whole mouthful of words that is oh-so-yummy!


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup Biscoff Spread
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Cream the butter & Biscoff spread in mixer; once combined, add vanilla.
  2. In separate bowl, combine flour, powdered sugar, and salt.
  3. Pour flour mixture into butter mixture slowly, a little at a time, until the dough comes together; the dough will be crumbly.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon.
  5. Roll dough into a log & wrap up tightly in wax paper; chill the dough for 2 or more hours.
  6. After chilled, preheat oven to 325° F.
  7. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Unroll dough from wax paper and cut into 1/4 inch slices.
  9. Now, here’s where things get dicey.  The dough is crazy crumbly, so you can either mold it all into individual cookies, OR, you can “experiment” (get it?!), mama♥miss style ;)
  10. As I was cutting the slices I got all crazy and just let it get all crumbly.  Some were cookies, some were not (they still bake and fill your belly just the same – serious yumminess, ahoy!)
  11. Bake cookie crumbles for 12-14 minutes; don’t let edges get brown.
  12. Allow to cool 3-5 minutes on cookie sheet; transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
  13. Yum, yum, yum!  (and these are hubby approved!  He loved them! :)

Yields a pile of yummy cookie crumbles (see pic!) :)

  6. Hello.
    Visiting from Serenity Saturday.

    I am not ashamed to admit that I’m a complete chocoholic! These look delicious…I’d eat a few of them no matter what they look like! (LOL) Happy baling and thanks for sharing.

    • :) ME TOO-complete chocoholic! I honestly was hesitant to make a post about them because I thought they should have turned out perfect – LOL! But that’s what the experimentation is all about, right? The hubs loved them (and so did I)! So, I just might have to experiment a little further in the future to make them a little prettier (or I could just be content with all their crumbliness ;) Thanks for stopping by!
