The History of Speculaas

Speculaas is a traditional Dutch spiced cookie that was first crafted in the 17th century when the Dutch East India Company had a monopoly to the spice trades in East India.

When the Dutch began to receive the exotic East Indian spices, local bakers guilds started to experiment with different recipes. Speculaas mix (or speculaaskruiden) became exceptionally popular and has gloriously survived the ages.

The cookies were brought to North America when the Dutch founded New Amsterdam (present day New York) and, to this day, they remain a special treat among the Dutch Americans.
