No Bake White Chocolate Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies
No Bake White Chocolate Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies are quick and easy no bake oatmeal cookies with cookie butter instead of nut butter. They’re dipped in white chocolate and garnished with dried cranberries for a festive holiday cookie!
It’s another day of sugar! Sugar, sugar, sugar. I have to admit, even my sweet tooth has been more than satisfied. I have been making real food too, as we cannot live by cookies alone. I feel like I can only inundate you with sweets so much, so an appetizer is making it’s way here soon. Notice it’s not dinner, only an appetizer. Baby steps. 😉
So we’ve all had those awesome no bake cookies with oatmeal, yes? In fact, I have the classic No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies version here on the blog, which I posted 2 years ago (note the no-so-hot photography!). They’re so amazingly good, and I wanted to do one with Biscoff a long time ago. If you’re not familiar with Biscoff, it’s cookie butter, and I love using it as an ingredient in my baking….or no-baking. 🙂 I’m sure you’ve seen Trader Joe’s version of cookie butter — same idea.
You may wonder why anyone would want to add cookie butter to cookies. My answer is for the sport of it! In all honestly, the cookie butter has a wonderful flavor with a hint of spice, and it jazzes things up. Basically, if a recipe calls for nut butter and you’d rather not use it, Biscoff is a great substitution.
Because Biscoff does contain more sugar than nut butter, I like to decrease the sugar content in my recipes slightly when I’m using it. Plus, we are using white chocolate here too, which is sweeter as well. White chocolate is not my norm…I’m a dark chocolate girl…but it tastes heavenly with Biscoff. And it gave these cookies a beautiful winter wonderland kind of appeal. Win-win. 🙂
I love pairing tart, sweet dried cranberries with white chocolate, and I thought they would really make these cookies Christmas-y. They certainly did the job, and these cookies are perfect for holiday gift giving as (1) they’re too easy to make, (2) they keep well, and (3) they’re pretty. I should include an obvious fourth reason there, but yeah, we already know they have to taste good!
Here’s to no-bake Christmas cookies! Gotta love ’em. 🙂
