These biscuits are packed full of flavour and are easy to make. The biscuit batter is allowed to dry out overnight before being baked. Enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee.
Use this aromatic blend of warm spices in my Speculaas apple cake, also on this site. A favourite in many Dutch treats, including Speculaas biscuits.

A workmate of mine from Bangalore taught me how to make this spicy tikka masala from scratch. He normally makes it with mutton. It's not quite the same as the one you're used to from a takeaway but it still tastes gorgeous (and is very low in fat). It's really not that hard to make. If you have a food processor, it does most of the work.
Dainty little biscuits flavoured with aniseed extract. Drizzle a simple anise flavoured icing on top to finish them off.
