Deliciously spiced and gluten-free! Indulge in the irresistible flavors of homemade gluten-free Speculoos cookies!
Speculoos is a type of spiced shortcrust biscuit or cookie that originated in the Netherlands and Belgium. It is traditionally made with a blend of aromatic spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and cardamom. The cookies have a distinctively crunchy texture and are often enjoyed with a cup of coffee or tea.
Speculoos has gained popularity worldwide, and you can find it in various forms such as spreadable paste (commonly known as speculoos spread or cookie butter) and as a flavoring in ice creams, chocolates, and other confections.
While speculoos can be enjoyed throughout the year, it is particularly associated with the holiday season, especially in Belgium and the Netherlands. It is often made and consumed during the festive period, including Saint Nicholas’ Day and Christmas.
