Speculoos

Introduction

At Maison Dandoy, our speculoos recipe comes straight from our great-great-great-grandfather. We still make them the traditional way with real butter, brown sugar and handcrafted wooden moulds. As crunchy as they are cheeky, they have the power to instantly set your mood and make your day.

Valere Rombouts Dandoy

Several times a week, two very discreet men came to buy crushed speculoos. Once, they ended up telling me that they were for the King Leopold. As Astrid didn’t want him to eat sugar, he hid them at the bottom of his jacket pockets before going hunting.

When I’m beat, all our biscuits are my allies but the almond bread is still my favourite treat!
