White Chocolate Caramel Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies

The name of these cookies seem like a mouthful, but it`s only because they are so wonderful. :) Haha. I`m definitely posting this week later than I had planned. I`m on my second week of my last quarter of college and it`s been pretty busy with my fraternity`s rush events, so I`m sorry!! It`s ending this week, so the craziness will end soon. My Google Reader is telling me I have about 650 unread posts of blogs I follow. I am definitely behind, which makes me sad, because I miss reading the wonderful blogs I follow!

I love Biscoff spread. I have so many Biscoff recipes saved in my bookmarks, it`s crazy. Since my last Biscoff treat was so delicious, naturally, I wanted to try making more desserts/goodies using the delicious spread. There have been lots of Biscoff cookies recipes out there, but I wanted to try making my own. I can happily say, these were a success! They took a few tries and I`ll definitely keep working on them, but I think they`re definitely blog worthy right now. :)

I love the combination of white chocolate and caramel with the Biscoff flavor. I added a small amount of oatmeal to add texture, but not enough to make it an oatmeal cookie. I love crunchy everything, so I always have Biscoff crunchy spread in my pantry, but the regular creamy spread will work just as well.

As much as I am a fan of cookies, I like baking in small batches, so this recipe yields about 19 cookies (using my medium cookie scoop). If you plan on making more, just double the recipe.
