When handed a sample of Biscoff cookie spread at a trade show a couple of years ago, I was skeptical at how a spread made of ground-up cookies would taste. I ended UP being addicted to the creamy European export, and now easy-to-find domestic versions are popping up at Trader Joe’s and even in drugstores! CHOW’s version is made with graham crackers, powdered and brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, all ground together in a food processor. To get the texture even smoother, the mixture is ground again in a spice grinder until powdery. Finally, oil is added until you have a smooth cookie butter that’s delicious spread on toast or used as a dip for apples or pretzels.
Special equipment: You’ll need both a food processor and a spice grinder for this recipe.
