Fill your home with the scent of Christmas Part 2

In Part 1 I showed you how to make the dough for spicy Speculaas biscuits. You can leave it in the fridge for up to three days, so it’s really easy to make your home smell lovely on Christmas day.

Roll the dough out onto a floured surface:

I dip the cookie cutters in flour so they don’t stick to the dough.

Speculaas are sometimes decorated with blanched almonds. They need to bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your oven. As they bake, they will release their spicy smell.

Then put them on a wire rack to cool down. Enjoy.!

  1. Dust the wooden Speculaas mold with flour, this will help prevent the biscuits from sticking to the mold. Next year you might like to make ‘Taai Taai’ another Dutch Christmas treat or Oliebollen for New Year’s Eve.
