Ingredients  Speculoos of Saint Nicolas

Number of persons




500 g flour

300 g brown sugar (Belgian!)

150 g of soft butter

1 egg

1/2 glass of milk (10 cl)

1 teaspoon of baking soda (on sale in pharmacies or grocery stores in supermarkets)

1 teaspoon of allspice "

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

1 pinch of salt

Preparation  Speculoos of Saint Nicolas

Total time : 1 h

Preparation: 45 min

Cooking: 15 min

Mix the sugar, spices, salt, baking soda, diced soft butter, the egg (all in a food processor for example).

Pour the preparation into a large bowl, add the flour and work by hand. Quite tedious work because the dough sticks strongly to the fingers: the dough is dry, thick and sticky. Add the milk to bind everything together.

Form a "ball" that is left to rest (I prepare the day before for the next day). Wrap in cellophane and place in the fridge.

Take out for a while and rework the dough which has hardened in the fridge (make several balls, it's easier).

Flour the molds or the work surface.

Form the bicuits: no more than 5 mm thick. Bake 10 to 15 minutes at 175 ° C (thermostat 5-6). They should not be colored: the dough being very dark at the base, there is a risk of toasting the cookies.

Good cooking: bicuits still a little soft in the center when they come out of the oven, which harden outside.
