What is the Flavor of a Biscoff Cookie?
Biscoff cookies are delicate shortbread cookies with a whole lot of spice and deep caramel flavor. Here are the ingredients listed on Lotus Biscoff packaging: wheat flour, sugar, vegetable oils, candy sugar syrup, raising agent (sodium hydrogen carbonate), soya flour, salt, cinnamon.
Best Piping Tips to Use
The cookie dough is thick, so make sure to use a large piping tip with about a 1/2-inch opening. The smaller the size, the harder it will be to pipe. I highly recommend an open star piping tip. For this photo, I use French star piping tip which cuts produces fine, deeply-grooved patterns.
Pro Tips For Making Biscoff Butter Cookies
- Use room temperature butter. It refers to soft and pliable butter, but still cool to touch. There should be an indent when you press with your finger.
- Measure your flour correctly. Adding too much flour to the recipe is the most common mistake. To best and easiest way to measure flour is by using a scale. If you still insist on using volume measurement, make sure to fluff your flour and spoon it into your measuring cup. Then, use a knife to level it off.
- Add more milk if your dough is too hard. Finding the right consistency of cookie dough is very crucial for butter cookies since you need it to be creamy enough to pipe. I find the recipe ratio is perfect for me, but if your dough is too hard to pipe, try to add a teaspoon of milk to the dough.
- Use finely ground Biscoff cookies. Make sure to finely ground the Biscoff cookies because you want the dough to be smooth and creamy enough to pipe. You don’t want the crushed Biscoff cookies to clog the piping tip.
- Use a cookie press to shape the cookies. if you are not confident about your piping skill, you can alternatively use a cookie press to shape these cookies.
