Snickerdoodle Biscoff Sandwich Cookies

Jump to Recipe

On Saturday, I attended a food blogging brunch and cookie swap with some of my dearest Utah blogging friends. When I asked Josh what cookie I should make to take to the swap he said Snickerdoodles. They are one of his favorite cookies, so I know the answer was a little selfish. I am sure he was hoping to be the taste tester:) I didn’t want to take plain old snickerdoodles, so I created a Snickerdoodle Biscoff Sandwich Cookie. The Biscoff cinnamon filling takes snickerdoodles to a whole new level of goodness.

Josh babysat Caleb so I could have a day out with the girls. They both get bonus points for doing the Saturday chores while I was gone:) I had a wonderful time at the cookie swap. The brunch was delicious and I spent hours chatting and laughing with my friends. Of course, we talked about food and blogging, but more importantly we talked about life. I love social media and the online community, but it so refreshing to meet up with friends in person, especially during the holiday season. I am so blessed to have so many amazing friends. I am in continuous awe of their talents, accomplishments, beauty, and big hearts. I want to be like them all when I grow up.

The best part of the day, besides the good food, friendship, and cookies, was raising money for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. We all donated money to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, an organization that raises money  to support research for new and improved therapies for pediatric cancer. We are glad we could help raise a little money for such a wonderful charity. We plan on making our cookie swap an annual event.

If you have a cookie swap to attend or want to try a new twist on Snicerdoodles, make these Snickerdoodle Biscoff Sandwich Cookies. Snickerdoodles are a holiday favorite and the cinnamon Biscoff filling makes them even better. The filling compliments the cinnamon sugar snickerdoodle nicely.  I know I will be making these every holiday season…and probably before then because I can’t wait an entire year to eat these again:)

If you haven’t tried Biscoff Spread yet, I don’t know what you are waiting for. I’ve made Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies and Biscoff Blondies and both recipes are winners. I know I am obsessed, but it really is the best:) You can order it online or visit their website to find a store that carries it near you. Happy cookie baking!

Snickerdoodle Biscoff Sandwich Cookies

Classic snickerdoodle cookies with a sweet Biscoff cinnamon filling. These sandwich cookies are fun to make and eat. Make a batch for your holiday cookie swap.

Servings
24 sandwich cookies

Ingredients

  • For the cookies:
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup butter at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • For the Biscoff Cinnamon Filling:
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Biscoff Spread
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons milk

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. 2. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Put butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in eggs, one at a time. Reduce speed to low and gradually mix in flour mixture.
  3. 3. Stir together cinnamon and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into balls, I used a heaping teaspoon of dough. Roll balls in cinnamon and sugar. Place cookie dough balls on prepared baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, until edges are golden. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes and then transfer to a wire cooling rack. Let cookies cool completely before filling.
  4. 4. To make the Biscoff cinnamon filling: Combine the butter, Biscoff Spread, confectioners' sugar, and cinnamon in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Add the milk and beat until fluffy.
  5. 5. To assemble the cookies, find two cookies that are similar in size. Using a knife, spread about a tablespoon of the Biscoff filling on the inside of one cookie. Sandwich the cookies together.

  1. Well, I want to be like YOU when I grow up!! It was so fun to see you and these cookies were so good. And your oatmeal Biscoff cookies are one of my husband’s favorite cookies, so you are a genious with the Biscoff!!

  2. I was lucky enough to taste these cookies and they were delicious!! It was great to see you and I’m so glad we have such an awesome group of ladies to get together with!

  3. Props to you for raising funds for cookiesforkidswithcancer. I am so glad you got to enjoy time with friends, and share this amazing recipe with us, too! Winning all around 🙂

  4. FYI… I found Biscoff Spread at our local Big Lots store. I love the stuff and eat it by the spoonful! I strated buying 5 jars at one time because I seem to use it up fast!

  5. I attempted to buy Biscoff the other day but the store was out! I need to make another trip ASAP….these look too cinnamony delicious not to make immediately! And yay for a day out with the girls. It’s totally the best, isn’t it?

  6. Trader Joes is the best. The only people I know who don’t shop there are those who don’t have a TJ in their town. These look yummy. Making sandwiches out of cookies is fun, except my kids say “but I only had one” when in reality they’ve now had 2 cookies 🙂

  7. Completely brilliant, Maria.

    Can you believe I still haven’t tried the Biscoff spread yet?!?! I’m going to have to break down and buy it online…I can’t find it in any stores. I’m sure it will be totally worth it, though! 🙂

  8. I just scored my first jar of biscoff this week! how excited was I? I haven’t even tasted it yet, can you believe it. I really love these cookies and want to make them for my husbands office and neighbors. Looking at the ingredients I have exactly everything I need…these may be happening very soon.

  9. Made your biscoff brownies and they were a huge hit with all who tasted them. Looking forward to using the spread in this new way.

  10. I had never heard of biscoff spread but wanted to try these cookies to share with family for Christmas. So I bought the spread and other ingredients today. I couldn’t resist and tried the spread. Amazing! Rachel asked me how it was, as I licked the spoon clean. I said, tastes like cookie dough in a jar. She immediately grabbed a spoon and tried. We both had another heaping scoop before putting it away (for our own good!). These cookies are going to be amazing! Can’t wait to bake them later this week. Thanks for turning us on to this delicious spread.

  11. I made these cookies recently and WOW! they are amazing. They have been such a hit with friends and family. My dad took a bite and said they literally tasted like a bite of Christmas!

    1. If you have to make the cookies tonight, I would keep them in an air-tight container or bag and wait to make the filling. You can spread the filling on a day before serving. Of course fresh cookies are best, but if you have to do them ahead, that is my advice:)

  12. Thanks Maria! Some cookies taste better with age like tricolor rainbow cookies – but I know not many. Maybe I’ll see if I can freeze the dough and bake as close as possible. Either way, thanks, I’ll be sure to put the spread on no earlier than day before. Hope you guys have a Merry Christmas with your little man 🙂

  13. I always like to leave a comment after I’ve cooked/baked. We made these as part of Christmas Cookie goodie bags. Delicious! The biscoff spread makes an already tasty cookie even better. We’ll be featuring this recipe on this weeks Taste Test Thursday – thanks for a delicious recipe, it was a hit with family 🙂

  14. What an you use instead of Biscoff? I’m in New Zealand and we don’t have that here =(
    Love this website by the way, I found it on StubleUpon and it’s not one of my favourites =)

  15. These were divine, so soft amazing tastes like a snicker doodle w no cream do tarta, I think that is why they stayed so moist, Delish. Thanks.

  16. These were amazing.. Snickerdoodles normally get hard over time, I think because this recipe does not call for nutmeg they stayed so so moist. Will never put nutmeg in the cookies again. So yummy!

  17. I used the exact same recipe to make my own snickerdoodles! (except I baked mine at a higher temperature – b/c I found that this gave the cookies more of a chewy texture while the lower temperature made slightly cakey cookies. Both are super yum though!)

    I never thought to make sandwiches out of them, using Biscoff. Genius!

    Here are my cookies and some further explanation on the temperatures!

  18. Yum these snickerdoodles look delicious! These are by far my favorite cookies. The only thing I like as much as snickerdoodles are firearms in easton pa. Unfortunately you can’t eat those, but they’re still good.

  19. I didn’t think this recipe was too great. First, there was way too much baking powder. I expected the cookies to be flat like the picture – instead they were very rounded. When you put two together, they are huge – almost too big to take a bite, and certainly too big to pack in small gift packages.

    I also thought there was too much butter and milk in the icing. The icing was very loose, and the cookie sandwich halves slid around as a result.

    The snickerdoodle cookie itself was delicious on its own, and if I weren’t trying to sandwich them, I’d be fine with the roundness. I’d skip the biscoff icing entirely – it didn’t add anything but work to the cookie.
