Biscoff Gooey Butter Bars have a butter cake layer topped by a cream cheese layer flavored with lots of Biscoff spread. These magical squares make an unbelievably delicious sweet treat.
This is a from scratch recipe that’s easy to make.
I love any kind of Gooey Butter Cake, but this Biscoff favorite one is wonderfully different and special. Biscoff spread has so much buttery, brown sugar flavor with a little spice. It tastes just like Biscoff cookies, but with the consistency of peanut butter. It’s such a unique flavor to add to baked goods and it is a great flavor for fall and winter. In addition to making delicious Gooey Butter Bars, it also tastes great spread on pancakes, waffles, or toasted English muffins.
Tips for making Biscoff Gooey Butter Bars:
- Line your baking sheet with parchment paper for easy removal. It’s easier to cut into squares once you remove the whole thing from the pan. Dip your knife in hot water before each cut to get a nice, clean cut.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will be fine left out for a day, but any longer than that, they are better off in the fridge because of the cream cheese.
- Make sure the cream cheese is very soft or at room temperature before making the filling.
- I accidentally overcooked mine a little and that is ok. It will not ruin them. They just turned out less gooey. For ultra gooey bars, only bake for about 40 minutes.
