Help! Anybody know where I can find Belgian "speculoos" cookies, sometimes sold in U.S. as "windmill" cookies (tan cookie w/slivers of almond)?

  1. The only place I know that would sell authentic speculaas would be the Dutch grocery in Norwalk, CT.

    1. Le Pain Quotidien should have them.

        Yes, Le Pain Quotidien sells them in baggies by the register. I tried a sample and they are sweet but tasty.

      2. I only see them during the holidays. This year they sold them at East Village Cheese. They had some covered in milk chocolate quite recently, maybe they are still in stock.

        Trader Joe's has a new product called "almond windmill cookies" that are thicker, less delicate, and more crumbly than speculatius, but they are quite delicious.
