Speculaas Cookies

Ingredients

    0.5 cup butter or margarine
    1 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1 egg, beaten
    2 Cups flour
    2 t cinnamon
    1/2 t baking powder

Tips

The dough will be difficult to work with when first removed from the refrigerator. I typically work with half at a time and knead a VERY little bit to get the butter slightly warmer to start with for the first rolling. I also typically roll these a little thicker than 1/16" - I like them to have a little more chew. The number of servings is for a thicker cookie.


Directions

Beat butter with sugar until creamy. Beat in egg until fluffy. Mix dry ingredients together and add to creamed ingredients, mixing a low speed until well blended. Cover and chill at least 2 hours. Roll to 1/16" thickness on generously floured board, cut out with standard or molded cutters. Place on well greased cookie sheet (or silicone baking mat) 1/2" apart.

Bake at 350 until edges begin to turn dark: 6-8 minutes for thin rolled cookies or 8-10 minutes for thicker molded figures.

Store airtight at room temperature.
