Let’s talk about go-to cookie recipes. It looks like I’ve found a new one. Peanut Butter Blossoms certainly might feature in my top 10 but that was until I baked these divine Biscoff Blossoms.
I adapted a recipe from Hershey’s: switching biscoff for peanut butter and using a dark chocolate Kiss to pair with it. Other than that, I recommend making no changes to the recipe. This is a classic cookie recipe and guaranteed mood enhancer.
A cinnamon-y and caramel-y rich but surprisingly light textured cookie, it is rolled in sugar and piled high with a dark chocolate Hershey’s kiss.
- ½ cup butter, softened
- ¾ cup creamy Biscoff spread
- ⅓ cup packed light brown sugar
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 48 Hershey’s Kisses, unwrapped ( I used Dark Chocolate)
- Extra sugar, for rolling the cookie dough
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a cookie tray pan with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine butter and biscoff spread until light and fluffy. Add in the brown sugar, and sugar. Beat together on medium high speed until light and creamy, about 3-4 minutes, scraping down the bowl as necessary.
- Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
- Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined.
- Shape dough into 1-inch round balls. Roll each ball in sugar until it is coated completely. Place on the prepared cookie tray about 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookie is lightly browned.
- Immediately after removing cookies from the oven, place a Hershey’s kiss in the center of each cookie, pressing it down gently. After a few minutes, transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.
- Store the cookies in an air tight container.
