One of my favourite Christmas cookies are spekulatius biscuits, they are also known asspeculaasor speculoos. I remember we always used to get a special parcel fromLebkuchen Schmidtin Nürmberg from my Granny. In amongst all the beautiful tins and lebkuchen would be a few packs of their spekulatius cookies. I loved their different shapes.
They are remarkably simple to make and the spice mix brings on those classic clove heavyaromas of the festive season.
