Kruidnootjes (Speculaas/Spice/Gingerbread cookies)

Print Friendly and PDF

Just before Sinterklaas we decided to keep some of the Dutch traditions in our new home in Australia. Therefore my lovely husband baked some gingerbread cookies for us.

Recipe Origin: Kruidnootjes - Recept

Amount: 60-80 cookies
  • 185 grams flour 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 85 grams dark brown bastard sugar
  • 15 grams speculoos spices
  • a pinch of salt
  • 125 grams butter
  1. Sieve the flour in a mixing bowl;
  2. Add the baking powder, spices and salt;
  3. Cut the butter in small pieces and added to the mixing bowl;
  4. Knead the mixture until the mixture has a dough texture;
  5. Warm the oven to 150 degrees Celsius;
  6. Add a baking paper on top of an oven baking tray;
  7. Roll small balls from the dough with the palm of your hands. The ball should be around 1cm in size;
  8. Place the balls next to each other on the baking tray;
  9. Cook in the oven for around 20 minutes or until they cookies are browned;
  10. Let rest and eat!
  • You can substitute the flour with wholemeal flour;
  • There are other versions of this recipe that use milk. I never tried the recipes with the milk but there shouldn't be much difference in taste;
  • The cookies will grow in size so the cookie dough balls should be quite small.
