Speculaas kruiden

Speculaaskruiden also called koekkruiden is a typical Dutch spice mix used in Dutch baking like speculaas biscuits, ontbijtkoek, pepernoten or kruidnoten.

It’s a combination of rich, warm flavors that are perfect for fall and winter. With cinnamon being the dominant flavor it’s very understandable that this mixture is so appealing during the colder months.
