Dutch biscuit trivia
Speculaas was originally made to celebrate St Nicholas day (Sinterklaas), children will put shoes by the chimney before going to bed, and well-behaved children are rewarded by speculaas cookies in their shoes. These days speculaas is available year round.
The spices used were common in the Netherlands in the 1600–1700s due to the Dutch East Indies spice trade. In those days couples in love would express their desires through the gift giving of speculaas, shaped as humans or even in a representation of St. Nicholas himself. While originally based in religious iconography, nowadays speculaas comes in a variety of shapes.
