We’re getting closer and closer to Christmas and I promised you some Christmas recipes. This Homemade Speculoos recipe might be one of the best cookie recipes I’ve ever made. It’s the family recipe from my boyfriend. Now you know what they say, right? Whatever she makes, a grandma makes best! It’s the absolute truth ^^
If you can get your hands on some Christmas cookie cutters, you’ll have the cutest Christmas cookies ever! The Boyfriend made the Speculoos and I made them into Christmas ones 😉 He said I could choose which cookie cutters I wanted to use so it was pretty obvious I went for the whole “cute Christmas” look 😉
What we need for lots of cookies:
- 1 kg flour
- 800 g dark brown sugar
- 250 g margarine
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tsp bicarbonate soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- baking sheet
- parshment paper
- cookie cutters
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Roll the dough into a ball.
- Flatten the dough a bit and wrap in foil.
- Set in the fridge over night.
- Preheat the oven at 180°C.
- Roll out the dough on a floured surface.
- Cut out cookies (min 1 inch thick).
- Place the cookies on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
- Let the cookies cool on a rack.
I can’t really tell you how many cookies come out of this recipe because it all depends on the thickness and the size of your cookies.
If you use cookie cutters that leave a print, make sure to push deep enough in the dough. Otherwise the print won’t be visible on the cookie once it’s baked.
These speculoos cookies make the perfect cookie for coffee or tea time or as a little gift on Christmas!
Have a delicious day ❤
