Speculoos cookies are a traditional spiced biscuit-style cookie that are thin and crispy. They are filled with fragrant spices like ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.

These traditional cookies are very popular in areas like the Netherlands and Germany. Some people also refer to them as Biscoff cookies! They are buttery, fragrant and oh-so-delicious!

Tips

  • Make Without a Food Processor – If you don’t have a food processor, you can make this pie crust by hand. Place the cookies in a bag and use a mallet or rolling pin to break them up, then combine ingredients and press into greased pie dish and refrigerate.
  • Grease Pie Dish – This will prevent your crust (and pie) from sticking and allow for easy removal. This is my favorite baking spray.
