Holiday Cookie Countdown: Biscoff White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Biscoff white chocolate oatmeal cookies_small

Welcome to Day 3! I feel like every cookie series needs a good oatmeal cookie, but here’s the problem: I detest most oatmeal cookies. Oatmeal raisin? Blech. That’s like a cookie posing as a granola bar. Oatmeal cranberry? Where’s the indulgence? Oatmeal butterscotch? Tolerable. (But who wants tolerable on their cookie platter?)

So I spent a considerable amount of time playing with this recipe until I made something that was worthy of a cookie exchange or holiday party.

Buttery, toasty, spice-scented with hints of white chocolate…these are my favorite oatmeal cookie to date. Do not skip the toasting-the-oats step. It’s a dealbreaker in these. If you can’t Biscoff cookies, sub any spice cookie.

Holiday Cookie Countdown: Biscoff White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies


3/4 cup quick-cooking oats

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup finely crushed Biscoff (or other spice) cookies

3/4 cup white chocolate chips


Lightly toast your dry oats by placing in a large frypan over medium heat; cook about 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until oats turn golden and become aromatic. Remove from heat and cool.

Use an electric mixer to combine butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla, mix until combined.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt and Biscoff crumbs. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating just until combined. Stir in toasted oats and white chocolate chips.

Chill 30 minutes (up to overnight). If chilling overnight, let sit on counter for 10 minutes or so before scooping.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheet Bake 10 minutes or until barely golden brown on the edges. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.

Makes 18 cookies.
