In Malaysia, Lotus Biscoff doughnuts are hard to find. So, why not make your own? This recipe uses Lotus Biscoff biscuits to glaze the finished doughnuts. The end result is a fluffy snack that’s set off with crumbled toppings for a slight crunch. To achieve well-shaped rings, use a doughnut tray for the mixture to set in place. As a tip, don’t immediately remove the doughnuts from the tray after they’re done. Instead, allow them to rest at room temperature for about five minutes before gently nudging them out with the edge of a knife.

Cookies

Be careful not to overstuff them to avoid the filing from leaking in the oven.
