Biscoff Spread

Hi Neighbors!

We are on a quick trip again!  This time we are visiting Louisville KY and then on to the Creation Museum!  The children are so excited!  They love to visit the Creation Museum.





Well, back to the reason for my post.  Have any of you ever tried Biscoff Spread?  My family tried it on Bagels!  It is great!  The smooth cinnamon flavor!  It is a sweet, creamy spread made with Biscoff cookies (57%).  They say you can enjoy it just like a chocolate spread or peanut butter. Biscoff Spread is from Lotus Bakeries.  You can purchase (2) 28 oz jars for $12.95.  Biscoff Spread does contain wheat and soy.

Here is one of their recipes that I would like to try.

About Lotus Bakeries:
"For more than 75 years, Lotus Bakeries has been baking Europe’s favorite cookies and sweets.    With 1,245 employees and production facilities in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Sweden and Canada, Lotus Bakeries produces and sells products under the Lotus, Peijnenburg and Anna’s brand names.  Lotus Bakeries products are enjoyed in more than 25 countries worldwide.

As with all Lotus Bakeries products, Biscoff is made with only the highest quality ingredients.  Strict adherence to the original recipe and caramelization process created in 1932 gives Biscoff cookies’ their consistently unique caramel flavor and crisp texture.  An expert panel of bakers and Boone family members judge the flavor, color and texture of the cookies daily to maintain their incomparable taste.  The Biscoff name is a derivative of “bis”cuit and “coff”ee, as the cookies are designed to be enjoyed with cup of coffee – which is how they are enjoyed by Europeans.   Each cookie is made with all natural ingredients, no artificial colors or preservatives and contains no trans-fat or butter.  At only 38 calories a cookie, Biscoff cookies make each day a little sweeter."

Look for a post coming up with a special recipe using Biscoff!
