It was cookie baking time and I wanted to try something different. We both love the flavor that comes from the speculaas spice and I thought using it instead of the traditional cinnamon would be delicious on a snickerdoodle cookie. And it was. This recipe is adapted from my The Perfect Cookie cookbook.

Drop dough balls – I used a small cookie scoop which is about a tablespoon– into the sugar mixture and coat before placing on the prepared baking sheets, 2″ apart.

place on prepared sheet

Bake in the preheated oven, one sheet at a time until the edges are just set, about 10 to 12 minutes. 

Rotate the sheet halfway through baking.

Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

How Were the Speculaas Snickerdoodles?

These are really yummy cookies. Crisp and buttery like a snickerdoodle should be but with that wonderful speculaas flavor that elevates the cookie to a whole new level.

Yummy!
