Spekulatsius (Spiced German Biscuits)

Spekulatsius (Spiced German Biscuits)

Holland, Germany and Belgium all have very similar versions of this spiced biscuit, which is made for St Nicholas’ feast in early December. Fragrant with lovely spices and rich molasses, these biscuits can be stamped with an intricate design or cut into simple circles or squares.
