*Guest Post* Cherry Biscoff Blondies

blondies1

Today I have an extra special treat for you. My dear Erin from Big Fat Baker is here to share some killer blondies with you. I’m so grateful to have sweet blogging friends to help out while I’m in Costa Rica for my honeymoon!

Hello to the readers of The Baker Chick! My name is Erin and I am from Big Fat Baker. Today I’m here to help Audra out a little while she enjoys her honeymoon!

I want to know, have you hopped on the cookie butter bandwagon yet? I finally have! One day at the store I broke down and bought a jar of creamy Biscoff spread. Some of you may only know Biscoff as those little speculoos like cookies you get on Delta flights. But now they have a peanut butter like spread the tastes just like those tasty little cookies and it is good on just about everything! I’d say it’s even good enough to rival Nutella.

So to prevent myself from eating the whole jar by the spoonful I baked with it and the result was this cake-like blondie creation. These blondies are thick and chewy, but also have a crisp top and edges – just like a brownie!

I chose to add some fresh bing cherries for some seasonality and color. You can skip them, or switch them out for chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or even blueberries. Here’s the recipe to make your own Biscoff Blondies today!

    Hi Erin! So nice to “meet” you on Audra’s blog today. I am a sucker to fruity-type desserts AND I prefer blondies over brownies any day of the week. There are so many possibilities! Biscoff is just…. heavenly. I love the combination of these! Never thought to combine cherries with cookie butter. :)

    Nice to *meet* you too! :) These are pretty awesome and super easy. I think that any fruit would work well too…have fun with it!

  3. I need to try this “speculoos” everyone keep talking about!! Looks delish! Awesome guest post, Erin. Have a great honeymoon, Audra!

    Oh, yum, these look great! I just made cookies, so they’ll have to wait till we eat all the cookies to make (most likely about 2 hours, haha). Do you think it would work to use another brand of cookie butter? I have some from Trader Joe’s that I’d love to try in this recipe :-)

    I can’t find biscoff spread anywhere! I so wish I could try the stuff since I love peanut butter.

  6. Oh my AWWWWDDD. I’d lick the screen if this wasn’t a new computer.

  7. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie says:

    What a wonderful flavor to add to Biscoff!

    These blondies look amazing, but I really just want to say I hope Audra and the new hubs are ok–I just saw the headline of the earthquake in Costa Rica. Thoughts and prayers headed to everyone down there.
