speculoos (cookie butter) soft bake cookie recipe


I grew up eating dutch treats and foods of all kinds. One of the most popular among us first generation Canadians, were speculaas cookies. They are sooo darn good; I will forever have an addiction to those tasty treats. I was recently introduced to Speculoos cookie spread and what do you know.. there is a plethora of recipes that use it out there. Not only can you spread it on a piece of toast, but you can use it in a variety of desserts too!

The cookies above are super delish, soft and chewy. I followed the recipe from Averie Cooks – you can find it here.
