No Bake Speculoos Oatmeal Cookies
I love Speculoos - both in cookie and spread form. Love it! So when I saw this recipe, I expected the simple cookies to knock my socks off! Well, they were pretty good. But not that good. The texture was sorta strange, almost like raw cookie dough, but more wet. And for as much Speculoos spread as I had to use, I would choose to make these again instead (or just eat it with a spoon!).
6 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup whole milk
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup speculoos cookie butter spread
2 tsp vanilla
3 1/3 cups quick cook oats
In a large saucepan, combine butter, milk, speculoos and sugar and bring to a rolling boil, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat. Add in vanilla and mix. Fold in oats and stir well. Depending on your oats, you may either need a little more oats, or a little more milk. They should come together to be thick, gooey and hold their shape when placed on wax paper or a silpat.
Place rounded spoonfuls onto wax paper (or silpat) and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to completely cool and help set.
