I may chat about my books, what I'm writing or reading, or just general thoughts. You may read posts about my cats or just my crazy life in general. Comments are welcome, if anyone wants to interact with me. Maybe we can share war stories, whether it's writing related or just about life in general.

Time for Cookies

Holiday time is the time of year to indulge in things we limit the rest of the year.  Many of us participate on cookie exchanges or simply want to get the holiday sprit by taking something to the neighbors.  Or if you’re on a budget, these make nice gifts.  Who doesn’t appreciate something homemade?  So for the next twelve days I’ll be posting cookie recipes.  Maybe you’ll find something interesting to try.

This doesn’t mean I won’t post other things too.  I will if I have the time.

First up is:

Biscoff Oatmeal Cookie Recipe


·                                 Prep Time: 5 minutes
·                                 Cook Time: 22 minutes
·                                 Total Time: 1 hour
·                                 Yield: 16 cookies


·       3/4 cup all-purpose flour
·       1/2 teaspoon baking soda
·       1/2 teaspoon baking powder
·       1/4 teaspoon salt
·       1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted (salted or unsalted)
·       3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
·       1 large egg, at room temperature
·       1/2 cup Biscoff® Spread (this is available at Walmart)
·       2 teaspoons vanilla extract
·       2 cups quick oats*
·       Note: Do not use old-fashioned whole oats in this cookie recipe. You need quick oats, which are more finely ground (and smaller) whole oats.



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
Toss the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl. Set aside.
In a medium-size bowl, whisk the melted butter and brown sugar together until smooth. Whisk in the egg, then the Biscoff® until combined. Finally, whisk in the vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together with a large spoon or rubber spatula. The dough will be very soft and slick from the melted butter. Fold in the oats.
Roll the dough into balls, about 2 Tablespoons of dough each. Place 8 balls of dough onto each cookie sheet. 

Bake the cookies for 11-12 minutes. The cookies will look very soft and under baked. Remove from the oven and lightly press down on each cookie to slightly flatten, since the cookies will not spread all the way in the oven. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
