Remember the crazy Vegan Speculoos Spread Craze of 2009? All the vegan food bloggers and PPK-er's were raving about homemade spread made from Speculoos cookies. I mean, we're talking a peanut butter-like spread made from ground-up cookies! Nothing could be more awesome.
In America, Speculoos cookies are the same as Biscoff cookies. So back then, I bought a pack of Biscoff cookies at Walgreens and made my own DIY cookie spread using Mihl's awesome recipe. It was delicious, but it wasn't shelf stable. I had to store it in the fridge, and part of it ended up going bad.
But because Memphis is always behind a few years, I finally stumbled on a jar of official Biscoff Spread at Whole Foods last weekend:
I seriously almost pooped my pants! There was no price on the shelf, so I took my chances. I would have paid, like, $10 for that jar (see yesterday's post). But when I got to the register, it was only $4.99! Whoa! Less than $5 for cookies in a jar!
On Wednesday morning, I tried the spread on bagels in its pure, unadulterated form:

OMG! Best idea ever! Check your local Whole Foods for this stuff! You need it in your life. Yes, you do.
