No bake cookies were probably the very first thing I ever learned how to make – along with a box of mac and cheese of course. It seems as though I made them once a week growing up because they were so quick and easy. I always made the original chocolate and peanut butter version but recently I discovered the fabulous Biscoff version. They are what dreams are made of I tell you! When you have a cookie that is made from a spread which is made out of those famous Biscoff Airline cookies, then how could you go wrong with these? I can still remember the first time I tried Biscoff cookies, of course it was on a flight. I don’t remember at all where I was traveling, all I remember is those delicious, Belgium made, brown sugar, lightly cinnamon-y cookies. Whomever thought to turn those cookies into a spread is pure genius!
I didn’t know if I’d ever have a no bake cookie I liked as much as the original but these are definitely equal. The other thing I love about no bake cookies is that I can make a half, or even a quarter batch if I don’t want to many cookies sitting around to tempt me or if I’m down to just a few tablespoons of Biscoff.
This recipe is perfect for these hot summer months, you don’t even need to turn the oven on and you’ve got cookies in 10 minutes. Enjoy!
