Description

Speculoos are spiced cookies that usually show up in most markets and bakeries in December in Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands. Bring all the flavor of a continental European Christmas to your kitchen with this recipe for the Belgian variation of speculoos. You can buy speculoos spice for these cookies or you can make your own with ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and white pepper. Crunchy, spicy, and sweet, these cookies beg for a cup of milk or tea to dip them in.
