- 350 g of flour
- 170 g soft butter
- 150 g of brown sugar
- ½ organic lemon
- 1 big egg
- 80 g almond flakes
- 50 g of ground almonds
- 10 g speculum spice
- 1 teaspoon Baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- Put the sugar and salt in a bowl together with the butter and add the egg. With a hand mixer you should beat the ingredients until they are frothy. Our tip: take your time! The mass was to be whisked for at least five minutes.
- Carefully stir the speculoos spice and the grated lemon zest under the foam. Then add the ground almonds and carefully remove them.
- Now add flour and baking powder and gently knead everything into a compact dough. This should be formed into a ball and wrapped in cling film for about an hour in the refrigerator.
- Do not roll the dough too thin on a floured work surface after this time. Cut out the speculum with cookie sticks and press the underside of each cookie onto the almond flakes, which are best spread on a flat plate. Then you are placed with the almond flakes down on a baking sheet covered with baking paper and baked at 180 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes to the desired tan.
