Today we've baked some Speculaas Dutch Cookies according to the recipe of Ed and Marieke from Weekend Bakery in Amsterdam.

Those look very good~ now I have to search for a recipe... Got it from the Weekend Bakery link in your post... Thanks... I am definitely going to try this one.
Happy Holiday Baking,
I made it according to this recipe:
I am sure scientifically it has no effect on the taste but the traditional shapes do more than make them look pretty. Years ago they were made using boards, I wonder if they can still be found.
Thank you for sharing the speculaas link. Having been to the city and sourced aniseed, today I have made a test bake up. No moulds, so used biscuit cutters - star and christmas tree shapes. Have tried many recipes over the years to try and duplicate the 'windmills', but have never been satisfied with texture or taste. These are wonderful. I'll be making more as Christmas gifts.
Thank you very much.
