Speculoos cookies are spiced European shortbread cookies, common in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany and generally eaten around Christmas. Personally, I don’t care for them that much, but Speculoos Cookie Butter is one of my favorite foods ever. It’s equally as delicious as Nutella, though a completely different flavor. You can put it on anything, but I prefer to eat it plain by the spoonful. Obviously, I had to turn it into ice cream, which is more socially acceptable to eat by the spoonful.
Speculoos Ice Cream
- 2-3/4 cups half and half
- 1 cup Trader Joe's Cookie Butter (or other speculoos cookie butter)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 10 speculoos cookies smashed into bite size pieces
It really is this easy.
