Flexible Speculaas flavouring for making cookies, desserts, or just about anything!
Speculaas cookies are like comfort food in cookie form. Typically eaten in the colder weather, these aromatic, delicious cookies are wonderful any time of the year.
Speculaas spices go back quite a long time. Originally, they were baked into animal shaped cookies and offered to the gods in return for a bountiful harvest. As Christianity gained in popularity, the shapes changed from animals to saints.
