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
- 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
- 1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
- 2. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Put butter and 1 ½ 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. 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. 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. 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.

How have I not yet tried biscoff spread?!
There is nothing better than a really good snickerdoodle.
Except of course if it has a schmear of Biscoff spread (love that stuff and the new TJs speculoos spread) and you make sandwich cookies out of the snickerdoodles. YUM!
I’ve been looking for a way to use the Cookie Butter from Trader Joe’s… this might just be it!
I am reading this before breakfast and thinking that these cookies would be so good with a glass of milk right now. 🙂 They truly look amazingly awesome.
I just bought biscoff this weekend — can’t wait to use it and this sounds like a good first victim! 😉
That is like two good things in one, I’ll have to see if they sell it near me.
oh my goodness, maria…these look INsane! i love the sandwich cookie thing too…more cookie in every bite!
LOVE that the swap was for a good cause !How awesome. And a morning off for you? VERY awesome 🙂 They look fantastic
Totally yummy idea for my favorite cookie!
Cookies for Kids Cancer is such an amazing charity! I bet these cookies were a HUGE hit!
words can’t even describe how much i love these.
I can attest, these cookies rock on crouton. Big thanks to Josh for the inspiration!
You’ve got me totally sold on the biscoff spread! I had never heard about it until I read about it on your blog and you just make it look SO GOOD!
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!!
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!
perfect. am baking cookies all week. Pretty pics.
I love Snickerdoodles, and this takes them over the top!!! Love it 🙂
A day out is what every mom needs!
Biscoff is such a lovely treat! Great idea here! Another awesome Two Peas and Their Pod cookie 🙂
I must try this spread after seeing these! Love all of your cookies Maria!!
I love Biscoff…great idea to include with snickerdoodes, love the combination!
I just bought the new TJ’s cookie butter which to me tastes exactly like a crushed biscoff in butter form so while I’ve never had the real biscoff spread, I bet it would be a great substitute in these!
I’ve heard about the TJ’s spread. That will work too! We don’t have a TJ’s though:(
These are the best holiday cookies! Did you see the USPS commercial mentioning Snickerdoodles? Feel free to stop by the USPS Facebook page to share your recipe with all of our fans! http://on.fb.me/ujGGtE
These are everything I could ever ask for in a sandwich cookie! Oh, how I need a jar of Biscoff in my life right now…
oh. my. goodness. These look to die for!!! I am obsessed with Biscoff spread… and snickerdoodles for that matter 😉
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 🙂
I think my dad would fall in love with these, I might have to make them for the family!
OH MY GAWD. These are brilliant!! I lovveee Snickerdoodles!
Sounds like a blast and these cookies look awesome!!! I need to get me some of that Biscoff!
I need to get to Trader Joes and pick up some Biscoff!
Lucky friends at the cookie swap who got some of these cookies! Must get some Biscoff spread to keep in the pantry.
These are some beautiful cookies! I bet they taste great too 🙂
oh man, i don’t even know how to tell you how happy these make me! they sound so amazing!!
These look great! I love sandwich cookies!
Those cookies are just what I need right now, cookies and a glass of cold milk.
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!
What is Biscoff?
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?
What a fantastic combo, and I just so happen to have a jar of Biscoff spread in my pantry. It’s meant to be 🙂
What a great combo, love that Biscoff spread!
Biscoff is just sooo tasty – such an awesome cookie idea!!
How good do these look? I’ll give them a try I think! Sounds like your day with the girls was a blast.
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 🙂
These look and sound amazing! I’ve never met a snickerdoodle I didn’t like! Still searching for that Biscoff spread…
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! 🙂
Mmmmmm, biscoff and snickernooodles, brilliant! These look fabulous!
Ils sont bien gourmand et garnis
Je te souhaite une belle soirée
I still need to try that Biscoff spread. What am I waiting for? I’m glad the cookie swap was such a success and I’m so sorry I had to miss it.
These cookies were great! The biscoff spread definitely helped set them apart. So fun seeing you Saturday!
My kind of sammie 😉
Yum Yum Yum!
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.
Love it! Those look so yummy. Snickerdoodles are my mom’s favorite. I think she is getting these for her next 49th b-day. 🙂
Snickerdoodles are one of my favorites. These look great! So glad the guys did some chores and hung out while you got to get away for a bit to connect with friends. I’m sure he didn’t mind getting some Daddy time in 🙂
I loved the chewy texture of these cookies. A great contrast to the creamy middle.
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.
These cookies look fabulous! I love Biscoff spread so I can’t wait to try these!!
Love the idea of putting Biscoff in between a snickerdoodle! Yum!
What a great idea to take this good cookies…and make them great!
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.
This is a recipe I use which is similar.
This is officially the greatest idea of all time. I WILL be making them for Christmas!
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!
Question for you – I want to bake these tonight for Christmas day. Will they hold up if I seal in a plastic bag? Or would you recommend trying to bake as close as possible?
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:)
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 🙂
These sound great, Snickerdoodles are my husband’s favorite!
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 🙂
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 =)
If you can’t find Biscoff Spread, you could try a cinnamon buttercream to fill the cookies. Or just eat them plain:)
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.
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!
Do you have to flatten the balls at all on these, or will they flatten as they bake?
I just made these last night and they are fantastic! I think this is my new favorite Snickerdoodle recipe. Thanks for the great recipe!
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!
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.
These were amazingly good!!! One of the best cookie recipes I’ve made in quite a while. Thanks for the recipe!
I love these. Love, love, love. I use my own snickerdoodle recipe, but this frosting is to die for. And I know this sounds weird, but next time you make these add some thinly sliced strawberries to your sandwich. Heaven. Thanks for the recipe! I blogged about it over here: http://thefoodcharlatan.com/2013/04/03/snickerdoodle-biscoff-sandwich-cookies/
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.
Made with TJ’s cookie butter. Delicious!!!! These were everyone’s favorite of all the holiday cookies we baked!
