Crispy German Spice Cookies, the Spekulatius

Jump to recipe


Spekulatius are crispy, spiced cookies that most people probably know because of their beautiful shape

The typical German spice cookies are made with cinnamon, cloves and cardamom, that also gives the cookie not only taste but also a wonderfully dark brown color

The relief shape can be easily obtained by wooden models, or silicon baking molds with corresponding patterned shapes, or a molding roll. With such a Spekulatius roller you only have to roll out the dough. Of course you can also simply cut out the cookies and eat them without elaborate reliefs.
