Method

1. Combine all the spices together for the Speculaas spice mix and set aside.

2. Mix the flour, sugar, salt and spices together in a bowl.

3. Add the sunflower spread to the flour mix and lightly mix in with you fingers, add in some of the water and gently bring together with your fingers, add in more water until you get a soft but slightly sticky mixture, 6tsp should get you to the right consistency but you may need a little more or less.

4. Grease and line a baking tray, preheat oven to gas mark 4.

5. Break of pieces of dough and roll into balls about half in inch big, just about the size of a marble. Place on the baking tray, you can put them about a centimetre apart, they don't spread too much. Press down lightly to flatten, then bake in the oven for 15 minutes. You should get 80-100 cookie treats from the mixture.

6. Leave to cool and store in an airtight container.


If dairy free isn't required you can use any margarine or butter instead of sunflower spread

Am going to give these a try, but as I don’t like cinnamon very much I will reduce the amount needed. Thank you for sharing.
