Chocolate Dipped Biscoff Pillow Cookies
Happy #SundaySupper! I’ve had to skip the past two #SundaySupper events due to a research paper that I’ve been diligently working on for the past two weeks. As you read this post, I’ll be putting the finishing touches on it before I hand it in on Tuesday. To say I’m sorry, I made you a delicious batch of Chocolate Dipped Biscoff Pillow Cookies.
I’m excited to be back, especially since this week’s theme is all about cookies. The #SundaySupper team is baking up our favorite cookie recipes for a”Holiday Cookie Exchange.” I don’t know about you, but I bake several batches of cookies every year for the holidays. I like to give them away as gifts, arrange them on a pretty Christmas platter for holiday parties, and dunk them in a glass of ice cold milk while watching Christmas movies.
I found this recipe for Nutella Pillow Cookies on Buttercream Blondie and decided to adapt the recipe a bit to use cookie butter instead of Nutella. They are the softest and lightest cookies you’ll ever eat.
These Chocolate Dipped Biscoff Pillow Cookies literally melt in your mouth as you eat them. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that the recipe calls for two sticks of butter. Yum!
I made these cookies extra special with the addition of milk chocolate covered toffee bits that get mixed into the batter and, of course, the fact that I dipped them in luscious Ghirardelli chocolate.
The warm cinnamon notes of the cookie butter pair perfectly with the chewy bits of toffee and bittersweet chocolate. These cookies are a guaranteed crowd pleaser. How do I know this? I had the girls from my book club taste test them. They gave the cookies their stamp of approval.
These cookies will keep Santa coming back for years to come. I promise.
Chocolate Dipped Biscoff Pillow Cookies
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room-temperature
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup Biscoff or Speculoos butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup toffee bits
2 cups bittersweet chocolate (I used Ghirardelli)
1/2 teaspoon vegetable shortening or coconut oil
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with silpat or parchment paper.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy. Add the Biscoff or Speculoos butter and mix until combined. Add the eggs one at a time until combined. Mix in the vanilla extract.
- Slowly mix in the dry ingredients until combined. Fold in the toffee bits.
- Refrigerate the dough for at least 3 hours.
- Scoop the dough onto the lined pans with a cookie scoop. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.
- Glaze: Melt the chocolate and vegetable shortening in a heat-proof bowl over a pot of simmering water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl, until smooth.
- Dip the cooled cookies into the melted chocolate and top with festive sprinkles. Allow chocolate to set before storing in an airtight container.

I am drooling. Did you say Biscoff?
……….*slack jawed, glassy eyed, little bit of drooling*
oh my goodness, you’re finishing your degree in English and you still find time to blog, bake and read for fun?! you are my hero. I have a BA and MA in English and couldn’t finish a book for a year after I got each! I started my blog because baking was the only thing getting me through grad school. I give you major kudos for being able to do it all! And major props for these cookies because they sounds ahhh-mazing. Toffee bits and biscoff? No brainer.

I have a feeling I’d be super-addicted to these! I’m seeing so many cookie recipes using Biscoff this year, I need to get on it and make some since I love it so much anyway. I may have to start with these beauties.

Good lord, how decadent do those cookies sound/look? I blame you for the puddle of drool on my keyboard.
Pillow is the perfect word to describe this cookie! It looks so light and fluffy. I love the chocolate dipped-ness. Perfect with some hot chocolate or coffee!!!
What beautiful little cookies!! Mmmmm Biscoff! :D
Pillowy cookies are the best! Or actually chewy are but pillowy is close enough. :) And Biscoff ones at that?! Oh my. These look insanely delicious!
I am absolutely certain that what the plate says is “Cookies for Renee”…
I was drolling when Meghan made them, and now I want them all over again!!! Yours look incredible!
Why did you have to mention Ghirardelli? My biggest pregnancy craving has been Ghirardelli chocolate chips… by the bagfull! These cookies look awesome!
Thanks, Brianne! Sounds like that little bundle of joy has good taste. I don’t blame him/her for the cravings.
When I heard pillow cookies, I just wanted to curl up and lay my head on a bunch while eating another bunch LOL Isn’t it great how versatile Biscoff and Nuutella are? Sub one for the other no problem. Good luck on the research paper!
Thanks, Carla. I love me some cookie butter.
I have half a jar of Biscoff just looking for something to partner with…besides my spoon :)! I think I must make these while I’m in a baking mood now!

Looks absolutely delicious! I would so love to try some. I am sure they taste amazing.
Thanks, Spencer! They were so good.
I’m so glad you switched out the Nutella! I always miss out on good recipes with Nutella because I’m allergic. I must say, I’m in love with cookie butter too! :)
Oh no, MoniQue! I’m so sorry to hear that you’re allergic to Nutella. Cookie butter is just as good though. Thanks!
Thanks, MoniQue! I eat the stuff right out of the jar with a spoon. So good!
I’m pretty sure I’m the only blogger on the planet who hasn’t tried Biscoff yet. But that doesn’t matter – these look amazing!
Oh Donna, you must try it; it’s amazing. I love Speculoos butter, too.
Thanks, Donna! We need to get some biscoff in your mouth ASAP!
These look (and sound!) incredible, Jennie! I must try these soon!!
They need to bring us Biscoff!! Dang Canadian lack of availability
Jennnie, these cookies look so delicious! Wow! I wish my pillow was made like this! ;-) Happy eating to you too, Jennie! Thanks!
gorgeous Jennie! I’ll take some pleeeease :)
Gorgeous photos and beautiful cookies – they look so cute and festive! The flavour combination sounds out of this world. I admit though – I’ve never had Biscoff and desperately want to try it. We don’t have it in Canada (and believe me, I’ve looked!) so I’ll probably have to buy a crate of it the next time I’m in the US. I hope the paper-writing went smoothly and that you’re happy with the final product. Welcome back – I’ve missed all of your delicious baked creations!
We need to get you Canadians some biscoff spread. I think you need to make a huge sign and start picketing outside the grocery stores. Thanks for your lovely comments.
Any extras? ;)
If only I wasn’t so far along with my cooking baking this year! :( I’d love to sample of of these to see if they are as light as you say — of course I trust you! I make cookies to give away too . . . which doesn’t make my youngest daughter very happy! Lovely blog you have here.
Thanks for visiting Barb, and for your lovely comments.
These look so scrumptious! I’d be worried that I’d eat the whole plate!
Wow, those look tempting!!! Besides, how can anyone resist a “pillow” cookie? :)
Gorgeous cookies! Good luck with the paper.
Holy smokes Jennie, these look soooo good and festive. The chocolate covered toffee bits in the batter are making me want to squeal! As are the biscoff. We don’t get Biscoff here or cookie butter so that makes me sad.
Thanks, Lisa! Oh no, no biscoff? Boo! I think you need to revolt against the grocery stores ;)
Oh, the gorgeousness!!!! I am a Biscoff fanatic…and these cookies sound right up my alley! Thanks for sharing :)
Love these Jenny!!! Love the chocolate dipping too, that just completes it for me.
This is an amazing recipe! Thanks for sharing!
How pretty and festive are these cookies, lovely!!
Biscoff and toffee bits???? I’m in LOVE with these beauties!!! So glad to have you back for this Sunday Supper!
Oh girl you used Biscoff spread…..OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I am new to Biscoff, and love that delicious cookie:-) This is a fun cookie, and your cookie would be perfect with my cup of coffee! Delicious, Hugs, Terra
Oh wow these do sound like a melt in your mouth cookie

So I just had to come by and tell everyone that I experienced these cookies first hand from Miss Messy Baker herself. I approve 1000%! I actually went to grab one for breakfast this morning, and I forgot I ate the last one.
Thanks, Carla! I’m so glad you enjoyed the cookies.
