💭 What is Biscoff?
Biscoff is the name of caramel-flavoured biscuits (cookies), which were created in Belgium in 1932 and served in cafes and restaurants with coffee.
It became a bit of a trend to crumb the biscuits and serve them on bread or toast, so the bakery decided to make a spread as well as the biscuits.
The Biscoff spread is the main ingredient in these quick air fryer cookies.
Biscoff spread is also called Lotus or Speculoos spread.
I've even heard it called biscuit butter or cookie butter.
🍪 Making biscuit spread into biscuits
It may seem a bit crazy to use a biscuit (cookie) spread and turn it back into biscuits (cookies).
I know, I know, but it's a quick way to add that caramel flavour to the cookies and the texture of the Biscoff spread is a great binder so you don't have to use egg or egg replacements.
It's delicious stuff!
🍫 Be generous with chocolate chips
The Biscoff adds a caramel flavour, but for the perfect cookie, try adding chocolate as a contrast.
I used dark chocolate chips, but you could use chunks of chocolate instead.
Do add the chocolate though.
If you eat the cookies when they are warm the chocolate will be all soft and gooey.
🍪 Baking cookies in the air fryer
Air fryers are great for all sorts of baking including cookies.
If you have an air fryer with shelves, you can rub or spray a little oil onto the mesh shelves and bake the cookies directly on the shelves.
This allows the top and bottom of the cookie to bake without turning them.
If you have an air fryer with a drawer, you can bake the cookies on non-stick baking paper, but you may need to flip them if the underside isn't well baked.
🍪 Small batch cookies
Sometimes you just want one or two cookies, not a whole trayful.
Or you would like a whole trayful of cookies, but you know that would not be a good idea.
You know those evenings when you get a craving for something sweet or if you want to give your kids a quick treat?
10-minute cookies from start to finish!
This easy air fryer recipe just makes 2 or 3 cookies, depending on the size you make them.
The cookie dough doesn't make big cookies either, so no need to feel guilty when eating this cheeky wee snack.
They are much requested by my son.
🍪 Crisp and chewy cookies
These air fryer cookies, once cool, are crisp on the outside and soft and chewy inside.
Just like a cookie should be.
I hope you try them.
