Speculoos Spice Mix

Move over pumpkin spice, there is a new kid on the block! 

[Did your mind just automatically start singing, “You got the right stuff…baaaby”? Welcome, friend!
This unexpected mix of spices will break through your Fall doldrums and power you into a whole new world of flavor! Obviously I use this spice mix for my homemade Speculoos Cookies, but I have also been sprinkling it in my oatmeal with a little bit of molasses.

Speculoos Spice Mix Gifting and Storing

You can put it in a jar and then give them an antique mold for gifting! And then the gift recipient can put it in *anything* you’d put pumpkin spice mix in! It is just delightful on top of oatmeal, or on top of apples with a little bit of peanut butter…yes. Ooooh, in pumpkin pie! The world is your Speculoos oyster!

Speculoos Spice Mix

What a weird word, right? There are rumors it derives from the Latin word “speculum” which means mirror and could refer to the stamp used to decorate speculaas. “Speculoos” is the Belgian spelling, in comparison to the Dutch “speculaas” and apparently spices were more expensive to import to Beligium so there are less spices in that mixture.

    I love this spice blend! I made the cookies for a New Year’s Eve party. My friends are all foodies, and they really liked the cookies. I will use cookie cutters, until I find the cookie molds.
    Thank you, once again for a great cookie and a new tradition!
