  2. The aromatic Christmas biscuits are very easy to make yourself and also offer vegan variants, as in the recipe presented.
  3. After baking, prepare a delicious tea or vegan mulled wine and enjoy!

Classic speculoos biscuits:

  1. Put the butter, sugar and egg in a bowl. Beat with a hand mixer until frothy. Stir in the speculoos spice or the alternative spices, lemon peel and ground almonds.
  2. Mix the flour and baking powder and knead everything into a dough. Wrap the dough in foil and put in a cool place for at least 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200 ° C (top / bottom heat, 175 ° C convection).
