Allspice Cookies ~ Speculaas

We ran out of biscuits to go with our afternoon tea.  Apparently there’s a cookie monster at home who keeps gobblin down all the cookies.   Ah well, it’s time to start baking something different anyway after the last successful Gruyere Crusty Loaf.   This is by far the easiest cookies  I’ve ever baked.  Only the first attempt and they turned out beautifully crunchy with that pleasant allspice aroma – Indonesians call it  “spekkoek”  spices.
