Biscoff Macarons by Picky Palate

Biscoff Macarons

I know, I know, more macarons. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I want to make them all the time! You do not want to miss this one. I crushed up the crunchy biscoff cookies into the macaron batter and used creamy Biscoff spread for the buttercream. Let’s just say this is one of my favorite Macarons yet!

I won’t keep you waiting any longer, let’s take a look at the process. Please note, for full step by step photos and an explanation on my shortcuts please see my Cookies and Cream Macarons post.

How to Make These Macarons

Biscoff Macarons-1

Here’s what you’ll need to get started plus a food scale. It will be worth your investment, trust me 🙂

Biscoff Macarons-2

You can find these crunchy Biscoff cookies at most grocery stores. If you can’t find them you can always check Amazon.

Egg Whites and Sugar

Start by beating your egg whites and sugar until stiff peaks form. It takes about 5 minutes depending on your mixer.

Biscoff Macarons-9

Pretty peaks.

Biscoff Macarons-5

Here you have your weighed out powdered sugar, crushed Biscoff Cookies, and almond meal/flour. This is one step you cannot short cut. Must be weighed.

Biscoff Macarons-6

I love putting my son to work, sifting those ingredients through a fine sieve. You can use a traditional hand crank sifter too. Why haven’t I bought one yet? Sheesh!

Biscoff Macarons-10

Once your ingredients are sifted, gently fold in your egg whites.

Piping Macarons

Place the folded macaron batter into a piping bag or large Ziploc bag with a large round tip attached. Pipe your macaron batter right onto your parchment paper, like so.

Biscoff Macarons-13

They’ll look a little something like this when they’re baked. Let them cool completely.

Biscoff Buttercream

Make your Biscoff Buttercream to get ready for the filling. I am finding more and more grocery stores are carrying the Biscoff Spread. Thank heavens. It’s to die for.

Biscoff Macarons-17

Pipe your buttercream into the center of half of the macarons.

Macaroon Ingredients
  • 95 grams egg whites About 3 lg egg whites
  • 65 grams almond flour or almond meal
  • 200 grams powdered sugar
  • 25 grams granulated sugar
  • 45 grams biscoff cookies finely ground up
Biscoff Buttercream Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup creamy biscoff spread
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 280 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Weigh your egg whites, almond flour, powdered sugar, granulated sugar and ground Biscoff Cookies on your food scale.

  2. In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment add your weighed out egg whites, and sugar beating on medium speed. Beat on medium-high until stiff peaks form. Takes close to 5 minutes. See pictures for visuals. Set aside for a couple minutes.

  3. Place the powdered sugar, almond flour and cookies into a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Place in a sifter or fine sieve and sift until all dry ingredients have passed through.

  4. Gently fold in the egg whites to the dry ingredients, mixing only until just combined

  5. Place batter into a large pastry bag with a large round tip attached. Pipe rounds, about 1/2 inch apart onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Give a good tap or two of the pan to remove any bubbles.

  6. Bake macarons for 22-25 minutes. You'll see a shell on top with "feet" around the edges. Let cool completely before removing. Once cooled, take an offset spatula to loosen from parchment. Pair the macarons close in size to each other to prepare for filling.

  7. To prepare buttercream, beat softened butter, creamy Biscoff Spread and powdered sugar until creamy and smooth. Place buttercream into a medium pastry bag with a large round tip attached and pipe a dollop of frosting on the center of a macaron and top with a second macaron. Serve room temperature. Store any remaining macarons in the refrigerator.

    I made these macarons this past weekend, using the Trader Joe’s brand of Biscoff (Speculoos). Although the macarons didn’t turn out as well as I hoped, I love the way they taste! So yummy! Thanks for the great recipe… I am definitely going to try again.

    I was just thinking last week that I wanted to attempt a Biscoff buttercream recipe and here it is!! The fact that you put it in a macaron makes me want to give you a hug… and then steal one of these from you 😉 I think I will be poking around your site now to see what other goodies I can find.

    An employee of mine’s birthday just came up and she LOVES Biscoff cookies. When I did a search of ways to bake with Biscoff this came up, and oh my goodness – these are amazing! I made three batches and a team of 20 devoured them. Thanks for sharing!

    Jaclyn says:

    obviously like your web site but you have to check the spelling on quite a
    few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to tell
    the truth then again I will definitely come again again.

      Tiffany says:

      How rude, Jaclyn. Your comment has several grammatical errors, too, which other people may find bothersome, but you feel the need berate her on spelling?

    Jennifer says:

    Can I substitute the biscoff spread to Nutella?
