Speculoos Cookies Infused With Cannabis

Speculoos Cookies Infused With Cannabis

It’s one of the Netherlands’ most popular kinds of cookie. And today, we’re making Speculoos Cookies Infused With Cannabis!

So what exactly is a speculoos cookie?

Otherwise known as a Dutch windmill cookie, the name Speculoos or Speculaas (speck-you-lass) literally means speculum or mirror.

These spicy, warm, and crunchy cookies are stamped or mirrored with decorations – most commonly; windmills, which of course are plenty in Holland.

For Christmas which is celebrated a little earlier in Holland, as opposed to North America, cookies are stamped with images of St. Nicholas.


“Speculaaskruiden” is the Dutch word for the speculoos spices and it’s made with cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and more warming spices you’re going to fall in love with.

As a time-old tradition during “Sinterklaas” or Santa Claus in the Netherlands, on the evening of December 5th, children put their wooden shoes out before going to bed, and if kids are good?

They’re rewarded by speculoos cookies in their shoes!

The surprising twist here is that we’re using Cannabis butter to elevate our cookies and you’re going to LOVE them!


Consider adopting this Dutch tradition in your home if you like, or make a batch and share with friends during the holiday season!
