Tim Pierson works for us on Business development and nutrition research. His family has roots in the Netherlands, and these spiced cookies are a tradition. They are often referred to as "Speculaas" cookies due to the combination of spices. Here we call them Grandma's Spiced Cookies. The spices come together to create an almost gingerbread-like flavor that has just the perfect amount of sweetness. They will take you to Christmas in the Netherlands in no time.
