Halloween is in the air. Time for the tricks and treats and scary costumes, pumpkin designs and zombie paining. Cookies go a long way in making this holiday memorable. I have put together here 11 delightful cookies you won’t let go in a long time to come
1. Cookie butter crunch cups
This basically is homemade Reese’s cup with a crunchy butter filling. The only setback is that no one is going to believe you baked it yourself.
2. No churn butter icecream
If you’ve been saying you can’t make your own ice cream because you’re averse to churning (or don’t have an ice cream maker), you are out of excuses. Get into that kitchen and make one of the best ice creams you’ve ever tasted.
3. Speculoos milkshake ice pops
This one takes a little willpower. First you make delicious cookie butter milkshakes. Then take whatever you don’t drink right away and make splendid ice pops for later.
4. Speculoos granola
Full of sweet, creamy cookie butter, this granola is really more of a dessert than a breakfast. But if you do eat it in the morning, no one needs to tell you not to bake them again
5. White chocolate chip speculoos cookies
You know what makes white chocolate even better? Speculoos, of course. Make your own white chocolate and speculoos chips, then make white chocolate speculoos chip cookies, and then inhale every single one. Or maybe just a few, if you’re into moderation.
6. Homemade speculoos spread
No cookie butter at your favorite grocer? Don’t fall into a deep melancholy and curse your very existence. Simply make your own following this easy recipe.
7. Speculoos mousse
Working cookie butter into a fluffy mousse is the perfect union of everyday and special occasion. Like kicking off your heels and dancing on the lawn at a wedding. But in dessert form.
8. Salted chocolate cookie butter bark
Sweet, salty, chocolaty — this cookie butter bark’s got it all. And then some.
9. Speculoos banana bread with speculoos cookie streusel
This soft banana bread has just a tiny bit of cookie butter in the topping. So it won’t be overkill when you slather a slice with it too.
10. Cookie butter doughnuts
- Preheat the oven to 435 degrees F. Grease 2 doughnut pans (baking spray with flour).
- In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment (or with a hand mixer), combine the butter, oil, cookie butter and sugars until smooth.
- Add the eggs and mix until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl.
- Add the baking powder, baking soda, fresh nutmeg, salt and vanilla and mix until smooth.
- On low speed, alternate between adding the flour and half and half, finishing with the flour.
- Spoon the batter evenly into the doughnut pans. I recommend not filling them all the way, just slightly under.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
- While the doughnuts are baking, prepare the glaze by whisking the half and half into the cookie butter. If using the powdered sugar, whisk the half and half into the sugar before combining with the cookie butter to avoid lumps.
- Remove from the oven, wait 5 minutes and then turn them onto a cooking rack.
- Either dip half of each doughnut into the glaze or drizzle the glaze over the doughnuts.
11. Speculoos toffee ice cream cake
Cookie butter. Toffee. Ice cream. Cake. If you have any reservations about this, it’s probably that it’s too much. But there can be never be too much. Believe it.
