Can you believe I tried to make Spekulatius Cookies and ran out of sugar? I didn’t have any muscovado sugar so I was going to sub in some brown sugar but I didn’t have much so I used demerara sugar as an experiment. You can see the little crystal sugar crumbs on the plate. They were tasty and crunchy! I was pleasantly surprised. While they would probably be better with dark brown sugar I made a pretty good substitution here. It would have been an even better substitution if I had run it through the food processor like the instructions said. I glossed over that part, hah!
I made the margarine version because I wanted something not round. See? Two in a row! Anyway, the main part of these cookies is the spice blend, and it was SO good. I can’t wait to mix it into my oatmeal tomorrow morning. Yum. I’m glad you come out with extra spice mixture, this is some tasty stuff!
