Dutch Windmill Speculaas Biscuits

Prep Time:1 hour

Cook Time:1 hour

Serves:Serves

Ingredients

  • 120g butter
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 200g standard flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp Equagold Speculaas European Mixed Spice
  • Pinch salt
  • 1tbsp milk
  • 50g Ground almonds

Method

Cream the butter, salt and sugar together in a bowl on low speed until mixed, but do not over mix. Sieve the flour, baking powder and speculaas together and blend into the butter and sugar mix. Fold in the milk and the ground almonds, and form the dough into a ball. Wrap dough in a plastic bag or plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 4 hrs or overnight if you can. Remove from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature. Knead the dough until soft, but firm enough to work with. Sprinkle some flour on the bench, and roll to a thickness of about 3-4 mm. Use a biscuit cutter to cut into shapes—or use a genuine Dutch wooden windmill biscuit mould if you have one to press out the shapes. Place shapes on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Bake at 170 degrees C for 12-15 minutes until golden and firm to the touch. Remove from the oven, and cool on the tray for 5 minutes, then place on a rack. Store in an airtight container.
