Today i went for gevuld speculaas. This is almond spice between two layers of speculaas. Speculaas is a spiced cookie dough. It might seem a bit like ginger biscuit, but there are more spices in it: pepper, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cardamom and nutmeg.
I went for the filled with almond paste version. One my alltime favourite cookie.
The coukie dough is like a short crust pastry.
Last Friday i got the flour and spices. It was dumpster dived.
At the back there are a couple of recipes for speculaas.
The almond past goes on top of the first layer of speculaas. On top is the final speculaas. Yummy!
A whisked egg is spread on top.
A cross section. I have way too much. Tomorrow i will bring most of it to the garden to share.
