This week I purchased a jar of Biscoff, a spread made with the popular Belgium spice cookies. If that sounds strange to you, you’re in good company. But if you see it at your local Central Market or Wal*Mart (or the grocery store in your area that likes to give shelf space to new and interesting items), it’s worth picking up a jar. I paid $6.00 for mine, but it was worth it because I’m finding lots of ways to use it. Yesterday’s pumpkin squares were good, but these scones were even better. You can definitely taste the Biscoff in the scone itself, but what makes the scones really good is a hidden filling of straight Biscoff.
Biscoff Filled Scones
Scones made with Biscoff spread
- 2 cups all-purpose flour 9 oz
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 scant teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 7 tablespoons unsalted butter very cold and cut into bits
- 1/3 cup sour cream mine was cold
- 1 large egg mine was cold
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup Biscoff spread
- 3 tablespoons addition Biscoff spread for filling approx.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, both sugars, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the cut up butter over flour mixture and pulse until mixture is crumbly.
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk sour cream, egg and vanilla until smooth. Whisk in the ¼ cup of Biscoff.. Add sour cream mixture to flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Transfer mixture onto a lightly floured surface (my dough happened to be very cold and not too sticky, so I was able to get away without a floured surface) and shape into two rectangles, each about 3x6.
- Cut each rectangle into 4 triangles so that you have 8 scone pieces. Working one triangle at a time, slice dough in half through the center to make two layers. Put about a teaspoonful of the extra Biscoff spread between the two layers of dough so that its hidden between the two triangles, then kind of pinch around the sides to seal it in. Repeat until you have 8 Biscoff filled scones. Sprinkle tops with sparkly sugar, turbinado sugar or whatever you have around (I used coconut palm sugar), then bake for 15-20 minutes or until the scones are browned around the edges and appear done.
If you have the Biscoff but are trying to get the most out of your jar and don’t want to use too much in one recipe, this recipe halves very well. Just cut all the ingredients in half and use 2 tablespoons of beaten egg.
Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!
Maybe you got a bargain. For $6, did you get the 28 oz. size, instead of 14 oz. for $3.79?
Wegmans sells Biscoff Spread for $3.79. I like Kim’s idea of serving it with ice cream.
Biscoff has kind of a gingery, spicy taste. It has no nut ingredients. Be careful…it is SO addictive. It’s good on all kinds of stuff. We melt it to pour on ice cream, put it on waffles and toast, and even eat it straight from the jar with a spoon!

How funny! I saw Biscoff at Cost Plus this past weekend, and was standing in the aisle debating whether or not to buy it. I’ve never had it before; do you like the taste? I love Nutella and peanut butter, so I thought I might like this, but then again, Biscoff has no nuts in it?
Another thing we don’t have here :(. That means I could have a peanut butter, cookie spread, and jam sandwich?… *tear*
@Lisa — If you haven’t had them, McVities are the best Digestives on the planet.
I’ve become a big fan of the imported cookies like Digestives, and I’m assuming Biscoff fits in this category. I’ve been seeing them on the shelves lately and now I want to try them after reading your posts. I’m trying to imagine what the spread would be like, too. It looks great!
I’m really going to have to start looking for this more. Scones sound great.

I’ve seen this spread at Central Market but was wondering on if I should try it and you convinced me!
What a great idea! And this looks like a terrific recipe. Be very proud of yourself Anna!
I picked up 2 jars on special for 2.79! So keep the recipe ideas coming!
I still haven’t found the spread. Our Walmart carries the cookies, but not the spread. As soon as I find it though….I’m making these!! I love a good scone!

Now I REALLY wish I hadn’t the whole jar so I could make this! Looks like I’ll be taking a trip to the grocery store today :).
