To make this yummy treat, you need a Speculaas spice mix. Maybe you are lucky enough to find one ready-made where you live. But if you live outside Belgium or the Netherlands, chances are you won’t find it or it might be expensive. So here is my version. Use it to make Speculaas or add it to your favourite sugar cookie recipe. Try it sprinkled on top of your latte or hot chocolate. Use it for this year’s Thanksgiving pumpkin pie.
Speculaas spice mix
4 measures of ground cardamom
8 measures of ground cinnamon
2 measures of ground ginger
1 measure of ground cloves
1 measure of ground nutmeg
1 measure of ground mace (optional)
Mix the spices together and store in an airtight container.
