SWEETTABLESCAPES is calling all cinnamon lovers. This recipe for the popular Belgian cookies will make you feel as though you’ve moved to Bruges or Brussels! Originally baked only on St Nick’s Day (December 6th) which was when some countries, especially Germany and Belgium, celebrated Christmas, these are now available all year!
Thin, crunchy and “cinnamony” this is the perfect cookie when you feel like a bit of spice in your life!!
Speculoos: (recipe from “Craquez pour les petits biscuits!)
1 and 1/3 cups flour (180 g)
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg yolk
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardamom
1 stick and 1 TBsp salted butter (125 g)
1 cup dark brown sugar (or vergeoise – you can find it here)
Preheat oven to 350F
Let cookies cool on rack. They will harden as they cool.
