Cook's Notes:

I always flour my baking sheets rather than greasing them when baking I personally think it has a much better quality. If you do not want to flour the baking sheet, you must grease it.

If you really want to have a lot of fun, purchase a speculaas plank, which is a wooden mold created especially for these cookies. Flour the mold and gently press the dough in. Flip the mold over the baking sheet and peel the cookie out. I am constantly praised and asked about my gorgeous, delicious cookies and frequently use them as Christmas gifts and treats when I've used the mold.

Baking Tips for Great Speculoos Cookies

  1. Use room temperature unsalted butter.
  2. Cream the butter with the sugar until it becomes paler in color (this may take a while!).
  3. Use a room temperature egg.
  4. Preheat the oven and prepare the baking sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Whisk the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl before adding to the butter/sugar/eggs.
  6. Do not over mix the dough. Mix until all ingredients have come together, then turn the dough out on a clean surface and mix by hand, if necessary.
  7. Roll between two sheets of parchment paper, anchoring the bottom of the sheets between your body and the work surface and rolling in an upward motion.
  8. Allow the dough to chill for 20-30 minutes before cutting into shapes.
  9. Once from the oven, place them on a rack to cool.

Spekulatius (Spiced Cookies)

One of my favourite Christmas recipes, spekulatius are spiced cookies moulded into delightful shapes. If you do not have the wooden spekulatius forms (from the Netherlands), look for ceramic cookie forms in kitchen stores.

One of my favourite Christmas recipes, spekulatius are spiced cookies moulded into delightful shapes. If you do not have the wooden spekulatius forms (from the Netherlands), look for ceramic cookie forms in kitchen stores. Cookie cutters in star, heart or moon shapes also work well. I like this particular recipe for spekulatius because it makes many cookies.

7 cups (3.5 l) whole wheat flour
2 tsp (10 ml) aluminum-free baking powder
1 3/4 cup (435 ml) butter, soft
3 cups (750 ml) natural sugar such as Rapadura or Sucanat
2 free-range eggs
1/2 cup (125 ml) almonds,
finely ground (optional
2 Tbsp (30 ml) ground cinnamon
2 tsp (10 ml) ground allspice
1/2 tsp (2 ml) ground nutmeg
2 tsp (10 ml) pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp (2 ml) almond extract
Zest of 2 lemons
1/2 tsp (2 ml) sea salt
Milk, for topping
Blanched almond halves, for topping (optional)

On a flat surface or in a large bowl, mix flour and baking powder. Make an indent in the middle and add butter, sugar, eggs, ground almonds (if desired), spices, vanilla and almond extracts, lemon zest and sea salt. Knead into a dough, then wrap in plastic and refrigerate overnight.

The next day, preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease spekulatius forms with vegetable oil and sprinkle flour in every nook and cranny.

Roll out dough to one-eighth-inch (two millimetres) thick, then cut pieces large enough to cover each spekulatius form (about two inches/five centimetres in diameter). Press dough onto forms, making sure there are no air bubbles. Cut excess dough off the edge of the forms. Turn forms over and tap them lightly on the cookie sheet to release the dough. Brush them with milk and bake on the middle oven rack for 15 minutes or until cookies form a golden-brown rim. Cool on a rack, then place cookies in jars or tins.

Gingerbread Cookies

Gingerbread is so beloved in Germany that we have several recipes for capturing their flavor at home. These simplified gingerbread cookie versions make great personalized gifts for friends and family. Place them in a decorative jar or a nice box lined with decorative paper and a festive ribbon. The complex flavor and texture of true classic Lebkuchen might pose quite the challenge to the home baker and is best experienced in the many high quality, brand name Lebkuchen in North American grocery stores.
