I had the pleasure of trying these delicious cookies last summer in England. They are amazing with a nice cup of tea or coffee. Made in Belgium these cookies have a slightly caramel taste and a nice crunch with each bite. They have been around since 1932. Recently I was on a flight to NYC and they were handing out Lotus Biscoff cookies. Thanks to the flight attendant on Delta I went home with a nice little stash! Walmart sells them however finding them in Toronto is like looking for a four leaf clover. I stock up when heading stateside so I recommend you bring back a few if crossing the border. Or ask a friend to bring them back for you, you won't regret it!
The reason why speculaas spread is so popular is because of this biscuit. This was the reason why I look forward to snack time on a Westjet flight (and almost forgive them for not giving me a meal for a long flight.) Crisp and light with a sweet cinnamon taste (and other spices.) It is a strong tasting, but delicious biscuit that is many steps up from the standard gingerbread cookie.
