Speculoos (Biscoff) Spread
I was in NYC when I first tried Speculoos spread at a little waffle food truck in the middle of Central Park. As you do. I have since become an aficionado...and here is my version. You don't have to make the Speculoos cookies yourself...but you could. (If you are truly sticking to the make from scratch mantra!) This spread is fantastic on anything throughout the festive season. Bring a little bit of Europe to your ice cream sundaes, to your morning toast or waffle or make any smoothie a bit Christmassy with a dollop of the spread included. It is also a pretty speculoos gift...just saying.
My son has become obsessed with Biscoff cookie spread recently, this is just like it except with the Christmas spiced twist. YUM. Enjoy meine lieben.
