French Fridays with Dorie – Speculoos

by Jessica on December 24, 2010

Speculoos |

Here we are in Week 13 of French Fridays With Dorie! As soon as I read Dorie’s story about these cookies, my mind immediately traveled to the Williams-Sonoma website and their Moravian Ginger-Spice Cookies. These are my absolute favorite cookies and I indulge in them almost every year (because, really, $26 for a tin of cookies? It’s a bit steep, even for these.).

I took Dorie’s ‘Bonne Idee’ and made a Speculoo sandwich with my favorite Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter (it was so amazing, I’m still thinking about it!). However, I need not worry any longer. I can save my 26 bucks and make these from now on. It’s just as well, since Dorie’s Speculoos are out of this world. Don’t tell Williams-Sonoma, though. 🙂

OMG that is expensive cookies! These were quite good with dulce le leche filling as well.

I love your mini cookie on top of the bigger cookie! Did you hold it in place with Nutella?

Too cute, Jessica! I love that little teddy bear. AND, I am going to try them with the dark chocolate peanut butter. Delicious, I am sure!

Glad you found a substitute for the expensive tin of WS cookies – they look great! Hope you had a wonderful holiday with your family 🙂

Your cookies are so lovely. I am really looking forward to making these! And Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter? Where have I been that I have never heard of it. Ooh.

The filling sounds wonderful! And hooray for finding home-baked substitutes for store-bought cookies – especially such expensive ones.

Merry Christmas indeed! Those look delicious! I could use that for a snack right now!

They look amazing! I know that I will have to tackle them soon, and I am looking forward. If you say that they are better than the $26.00/a tin, I am even more enthusiastic:)
Lovely photos:)
