Tell me about this recipe!
- These easy Biscoff blondies are made with brown butter, which balances out the sweetness of the cookie butter. Brown butter gives a delicious nutty and toasted taste.
- The batter is swirled with melted cookie butter (or biscoff spread) just before baking.
- This all comes together in 1 large bowl, so you won't have a bunch of dirty dishes when you're done baking!
- I folded in chocolate chips but you could also use white chocolate chips or white chocolate chunks if you prefer.
- I add an extra egg yolk to make give these blondies a fudgy texture.
- Flour: I'm using all purpose flour here, also known as plain flour in the UK. I have not tested this recipe with gluten free flour.
- Lotus Biscoff Spread: you can find Cookie Butter at Trader Joes or you can use Biscoff spread! I make sure to melt it in the microwave for a few seconds to make it easier to swirl through the batter
- Baking Powder: I use a little bit of baking powder to help these bars rise just a bit, giving you the perfect texture between fudgy and cakey!
- Unsalted Butter: I always use European style butter in my baking. European style butter has a higher butterfat content, giving you a richer and creamier taste.
- Chocolate Chips: I used dark chocolate chips but it is also delicious with white chocolate chips!
- Lotus Biscoff Biscuits: To get that extra cookie butter taste, top the blondies with Biscoff cookies just before baking.
- Vanilla Extract: Try to use good quality vanilla extract.
How to make this recipe
Step One: In a small saucepan, melt the butter on medium-low heat. Once melted, increase the heat to medium until it begins to brown. The milk solids at the bottom of the pan will start to turn a light brown and the foaming should stop. You'll also have a nutty and toasted smell. Take off the heat and pour the melted butter into a large bowl. Let it cool.
Step Two: Once your butter has cooled, whisk in your granulated sugar, light brown sugar, vanilla extract and salt.
Step Three: Add your egg and egg yolk and whisk until smooth.
Step Four: Fold in your flour and baking powder into your wet ingredients. Fold until there are no more streaks of flour.
Step Five: Fold in your chocolate chips.
Step Six: Grease and line an 8x8 baking pan. Pour the blondie batter into the pan and use your rubber spatula to evenly press the batter down. In a microwave, warm up your Biscoff cookie spread in short blasts. You want it to be liquid enough that you can easily swirl it through the batter. Drop 5-6 large dollops on to the dough and use a butter knife to swirl it through. Place your Biscoff cookies on top and bake at 350 degrees for 21-23 minutes.
Recipes Tips & Tricks
- I highly recommend using a weighing scale and measuring out your ingredients the metric way. It makes a huge difference to your baking and is the most accurate way to bake!
- Don't overmix your dough! The more you mix it, the drier it will be.
- I make sure that all of my ingredients are at room temperature before I start the recipe, so pull out all of the ingredients about 2 hours before you start baking.
- If you want gooey blondies, don't overbake them!
- Let the bars cool completely before cutting into them.
