Speculaas is a delicious type of biscuit with a rich taste as it is usually cooked with a lot of spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cardamon and white pepper. Some of its varieties are sold all year round. Others, such as small cookies kruidnoten, are available just during Sinterklaas or Saint Nicholas holiday. It's impossible to imagine a Dutch Christmas without speculaas so don't hesitate to try this traditional sweet treat.
