There are two things I am quite obsessed with: Spekulatius (spice cookies similar to speculoos) and nougat. For everyone who reads this blog it must feel like Groundhog Day: Every single year I proclaim that I have just come out with the perfect Spekulatius recipe. But this cookie is very special to me and believe me, it deserves all this attention. Especially since there’s a lot to experiment with: different spices, sugars and even different fats always give this cookie a new dimension and no recipe is the same. While last year it took me some time to figure out how to make Spekulatius cookies with oil instead of margarine, this year’s recipe came together pretty quickly with the help of refined coconut oil.
