FFwD - Speculoos.......day 5 of Cookie Week
I had never heard of Speculoos before this assignment. I may need to get out more. According to Dorie, these originated in Belgium and they are the cookie that celebrates the name day of Saint Nicholas.....or Santa Claus. Hmmmm....."here comes Speculoo, here comes Speculoo, right down Speculoo Lane....." Don't think so.
These are a brown sugar cookie with the typical Christmas spices of cinnamon, ginger and cloves and they smell fabulous when they're baking. I opted for sandwiching some of mine with dulce de leche and others with Nutella, but they're also really good all on their own.
Check out Dorie's book, "Around My French Table" for the recipe.
