Spekulatius is a traditional Christmas cookie that is made out of a shortcrust. The cookies are typically formed by using a cookie mold, but you can use any kind of cookie cutter that you have anyway.
Combine flour with sugar, gingerbread spice, and salt.
Add butter (cold if kneading the dough with your hands, soft if using a food processor) and knead the dough well.
Form dough into a ball, place in a sealable bowl and leave in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
On a floured working surface, roll dough and either use cookie cutters or place roll onto a spekulatius form in portions.
Bake cookies at 350° F (180° C) for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
