Speculaas...

It is thought that the Dutch name Speculaas comes from the latin 'speculum' that means mirror.

 

Traditionally speculaas biscuits are the mirror image of the carved wooden moulds they are baked in.

 

Windmill shaped speculaas biscuits are known throughout the whole world, as are male or female speculaas figurines.

 

These days speculaas biscuits can take any shape or form. But you can do so much more with speculaas spice than just making biscuits.
