Keep a close eye on the speculaas during the later stage of the baking, because you don’t want your speculaas be too dark, (you will taste and smell it, burned sugar!). 
Transfer them to cool on a rack.


Sprinkle flour in the speculaas molds. 


Place  them on the baking tray.
Bake for 20 minutes (depending on your oven) until brown and ready.

Take them out and leave the speculaas on the baking tray for a few minutes to firm up. 

And Enjoy !!

Speculoos or Speculaas?

Is it Speculoos or is it Speculaas?

It is actually the same:
Speculoos is the Flemish name for Speculaas. The spread we sell is actually called Speculoos because it originates from Belgium. It is a spread made of biscuits. It is also known as cookie butter or Biscoff spread.
The biscuits we sell are called Speculaas because they are made in Holland.

Speculoos Pasta with caramelized biscuits, is a delicious spread, ideal for those who want something different for breakfast or lunch.
The result is amazing: on bread or
toasts at breakfast; this spread is distinctive in taste, a pleasure for Speculaas lovers.

Replaces the well known speculaas biscuit on a sandwich.
Speculoos contains good, unsaturated fats, is rich in Omega 3 and does not contain artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, and most of all: is really delicious.
