Recipe insights & TIPS

There's a reason why Biscoff  Cookie recipes dominate the world of food blogging. It's creamy, rich and full of addictive flavor which is irresistible on or in almost anything! Biscoff spread is a version of the famous European cookie we have all come to love, and myself originally being from Scotland I remember the cookies well growing up.

Did you know that this spread version was invented by a food lover who presented her idea on a television show? Lotus Bakeries liked the idea so much they worked with the creator together and the spread was a sell-out from the moment it hit the shelves.

Made from all-natural ingredients with zero preservatives and vegan, it provides an indulgent treat for snack time. Spread a little on toast, dip some apple slices in it or even just spoon it straight from the jar. Be warned though one scoop usually leads to a jar missing half of it's content!I added some Biscoff to an ice cream base that I regularly use and magic happened.

It tastes 100 times creamier than the best gelato I've ever tasted and the toasted almonds add a fantastic toasty crunch. I wanted a really rich Biscoff flavor so I added a half cup to the ice cream base, it looked like a lot and I wasn't sure if it would be okay, but if you yearn to make ice cream soon, you have to make this flavor. I guarantee you wont be disappointed!
