Spiced speculaas

Too few ratings

“I love spiced speculaas and developed my own recipe for them out of some of my favorites. It's worth using dark muscovado sugar in them, which really gives them a special flavor. I have silicone speculaas mould that is really useful! However, you can also roll the dough out, press out the shapes, and bake on a lined baking sheet.”
