#Cookies, Cookies and more... Triple Chocolate Chip Biscoff Cookies

We are having a Cookie Party on Foodie Friends Friday starting tonight at 9pm EST.
I hope you will all join us with your favorite cookie recipes.
I can't wait to see what you will bring.

So in honour of this party I decided to make my own cookies.
I was looking for a recipe to make for a bake sale that my hubby had to bring baking for this week and found this wonderful recipe from Isabelle at Home.  I love Isabelle, not only because she is Canadian but she has a wonderful blog and wonderful recipes.  You have to head over there and check them out, her post will make you want to come back for more.
This recipe had biscoff and as we always have biscoff in the house, I knew we would have the ingredients.  My husband goes through a jar a week.  Biscoff and chocolate chips, were could a person go wrong. 
I had sent the couple leftover cookies that I didn't pack for bake sale with my hubby and he sent me and email yesterday saying "So can u make some of the cookies made yesterday again?  They taste very goooooood!!!".  I made a second batch just for him... But remember to check the temperature of the oven.  I thought I had turned it to 375 but it was closer to 400 so a few got burnt.  But the cookies must be gooooood as he is even eating the burnt ones :).
Yesterday afternoon I got another email from hubby that he received from one of the guys at the bakesale ~~" Your cookies were a huge hit- we had a few people come back to buy more after getting one."
These are one good cookie.  Thanks Isabelle for the recipe!

Triple Chocolate Chip Biscoff Cookies

3/4 cup biscoff spread
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp cream
1 egg
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cup white flour (King Arthur Flour)
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla (I used Mimi's Magic Apron Vanilla Extract)**
2 cups chocolate chip or broken baking chocolate ***

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Cream biscoff spread, butter, brown sugar, cream,egg and vanilla together.  Add flour, baking soda and salt until just mixed.  Stir in chocolate.  I used my  pampered chef cookie scoop and dropped them on the cookie sheet.  Bake for 12-14 minutes.  Mine didn't flatten out like Isabelle's did.
*** for the first batch of cookies I use 1 cup milk chocolate Ghirardelli, 1/2 cup semisweet Ghiradelli baking chocolate, broken in pieces and 1/2 cup Ghiradelli white chocolate broken in pieces.  For the second batch I use 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips, 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup white chocolate pieces.
** I won Mimi's Magic Apron Vanilla Extract and love the flavour.  It also makes me believe that my mom is baking right beside me as my mom's name was Mimmie.

I even broke down and had a cookie, although I am not supposed to have one as I am on a no sugar, no grain, no legume program right now.  But they smelt so good I just had to try them.

Host Favorite... Honey ButterFinger Bites

If you follow my blog, you know that I pick one recipe to be my host favorite and I try to make it before the next Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party.  Last week, I found Honey-Butter Finger Bites from The Nerdy Farm Wife.  I am not sure if I have ever eaten butterfingers as I can't remember and I am sure that isn't possible for me not to have tried them as I have eaten every type of  candy there is.... but I don't remember what they taste like.  But this recipe intrigued me and it only had 3 ingredients.  I also love Nerdy Farm Wife's picture of them with the fallen leaves... So great.
The only thing about this recipe that I needed to change was the peanut butter.  We have a peanut sensitivity in the house, so I try very hard to stay away from it, so I decided that biscoff would work great and I also had some nutella.  That is what I am going to try  and both worked.  The biscoff bites were soft and chewy... just how I liked them and the nutella were harder... they also were good and I didn't put chocolate on the nutella ones.

adapted from The Nerdy Farm Wife
2/3 cup honey
1/2 cup peanut butter - I used crunchy biscoff in one recipe and nutella in another
chocolate chips for coating - I used Ghirardelli 60% chocolate

Place honey in saucepan and bring to a soft boil stage, (around 275 degrees).  Remove from heat and add either biscoff or nutella and stir for a few minutes.  Pour in pan that is covered with parchment paper.  Place in refrigerator to harden.  I took mine out after about 15 minutes to score so that it will be easier to cut when they hardened.  Once hard, bring out of fridge and break or cut into pieces.  Dip in melted chocolate and place back on pan covered with parchment paper and return to fridge to harden again.

I didn't dip the bites that I made with the nutella as I thought the chocolate in the nutella was enough.  The ones that I made with biscoff were softer than the ones that I made with nutella.
