Holiday season in the Netherlands has begun!
Sinterklaas arrived in the Netherlands last Saturday and is scheduled to appear in Leiden on the 19th of November. Decorations and festive lights have started appearing... and there's a sudden proliferation of holiday treats in the stores and oliebollen stands outside.
One such treat is the speculaas.
Today, I went speculaas crazy in the store and purchased Speculaas, speculoos paste, speculaas hagelmix and speculaas spice for cooking.
Then I did what any normal dutch person would do (ok, maybe not true).
I put it all together on white bread.
If only there was a speculaas flavored beverage!!
