Australians love their biscuits, and Iced VoVos are biscuits with pink fondant, raspberry jam, and coconut. We used strawberries instead of raspberries (you can use either) and marshmallows instead of fondant, and the result was utterly delicious, and honestly much better than the biscuit itself.
Speculoos cookies are spiced European shortbread cookies, common in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany and generally eaten around Christmas.
