Biscoff-Glazed Soft Oatmeal Cookies
Biscoff-Glazed Soft Oatmeal Cookies are a great holiday cookie or for any time of the year! The Biscoff glaze gives them a little hint of gingerbread for the perfect Christmas dessert.
I can hardly handle that November is already here. This year is going by way too fast. How was everyone’s Halloween? For the first time ever, I stayed home and handed out candy to the trick-or-treaters. It was a lot of fun and nice to meet some of our new neighbors. I was afraid I was going to run out of candy as I was warned that there are a LOT of kids in our neighborhood and some kids that come back for round two – but I actually ended up with a lot of leftover candy that I’ll probably still be eating at this time next year. It’s good and it’s bad…mostly good. 🙂 I was also afraid that some of the neighbors that came up to the door would notice my gigantic 9-foot fake Christmas tree that I impulsively put up a couple of weeks ago. Yup, did I mention before that my Christmas tree went up in mid-October? Well, now you know. Just don’t give up on me now – I know I’m weird, but I blame it on the fact that I was overly excited about putting up my first Christmas tree in my new home and it just sort of happened. Mr. Wishes and I went to pick it up because his parents were holding it for us as it was too big of a box to keep at our old apartment. We went to get it out of their storage space one night and brought it home. I got a little curious what it looked like outside of the box so I started taking the pieces out…just to “look”. Two hours and many Christmas songs later and our Christmas tree was up! I haven’t decorated it yet because I want to save that for closer to Christmas (like, tomorrow) but it does have lots of pretty lights on it. And now that it’s officially November, I can light it proudly at night and not worry about the neighbors seeing it from the street and thinking we are crazy.
Let’s talk about these Biscoff-Glazed Soft Oatmeal Cookies. Biscoff was love at first bite for me. One of my favorite Biscoff snacks so far has been these white chocolate Biscoff pretzel bites. People, if you haven’t tried Biscoff yet, it’s TIME. I might even have attacked the jar with a spoon once or twice in my life….maybe even more. I don’t like to keep track of those things. Plus, oats and Biscoff spread in the same cookie? Talk about delicious! I already love oatmeal cookies, so once you add the icing, it only gets better with these Biscoff-Glazed Soft Oatmeal Cookies.
Biscoff love forever and ever, amen.
- 2 cups quick-cook (1-minute) oats
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- ½ tsp. kosher salt
- 1 & ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ (1 stick) cup salted butter
- 2 TBSP vegetable oil
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 6 TBSP plain Greek yogurt (2% or full-fat)
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- ¼ cup Biscoff Spread
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 & ½ cups powdered sugar, sifted
- 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
- Whisk together the oats, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and flour. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter, oil and sugar. Add the egg, beating until fluffy. Beat in the yogurt and vanilla, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.
- Add in the flour mixture in three additions; beat on low just until incorporated. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- Use a two tablespoon cookie scoop to place the dough onto the prepared sheets. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until light brown.
- Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
- While the cookies are cooling, make the glaze. Whisk together all of the glaze ingredients until smooth. If the glaze looks a little too thin, add more powdered sugar. If it looks too thick, stir in a little more milk. You may omit the corn syrup, but it does add a nice shine.
- Put the cookies close together on a wire rack and place the rack over a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Pour the glaze over the cookies. The glaze will spread and smooth; and after about 30 minutes, will set.
