Speculoos - Despite what I originally thought ... speculoos not a new form of eye wear or the act of pondering a subject. 😅🤦🏻♀️ Who knew that I've been enjoy speculoos, and even purchasing, it for years - without even knowing it.
When the kids were little - we called the little crunchy cookies - air plane cookies. When I bought them in the grocery store, I referred to them by their brand name - Biscoff. Talk about genius marketing. I always just assumed that Biscoff was the appropriate name for the gingery cookies - like the way that Kleenex has convinced everyone that the appropriate term for a tissue, is a "kleenex." 🤧
Now that I know the proper name for a speculoos cookie, I see them more than ever. Trader Joes sells the most delicious jars of speculoos butter. I've even seen some seriously drool worthy speculoos ice cream.🍨 These little cookies have gone way beyond their humble beginnings as in-flight snacks. ✈️
I've experimented with recipes like speculoos granola bars and speculoos cupcakes and now I'm trying my hand at speculoos biscotti. These dip-able cookies were a clear favorite when served alongside an assortment of biscotti flavors. I love the sweet, buttery flavor of these crispy cookies and the best part is that the recipe doesn't use the whole package of cookies. #leftoversforthewin 😂
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
20 speculoos cookies, coarsely chopped
Cool slightly. Slice into 1/2" slices on the diagonal. Bake for 10 more minutes per side.
