Sugar, spice and everything nice that is best enjoyed with a cup of afternoon tea. According to the internet, Moravia is a very old region of the Czech Republic, that no longer technically exists but is still commonly referred to as an area of land to which people identify themselves with. I don’t know anything about Moravian people, but I do know that they must have good taste in cookies. AND fun fact, in just a little over two weeks, I will actually BE in the Czech Republic! So all the more reason to celebrate with cookies.
These little treats are thin and crisp with a blend of the warmest spices that make them reminiscent of those lovely little Speculoos/Speculaas or Biscoff cookies that are highly sought after WORLD WIDE and now often served on airplanes!! I feel like I’ve won the lottery when the snack trolley offers me one of those little gems. Maybe I will get a spiced cookie on my plane ride who knows... But for now I can bake something similar at home. They’re not an exact replica of the Lotus Brand biscuits, but they are darn tasty cookies. The best part is that these work excellent as “ice-box” cookies, meaning you can slice and bake from frozen as you need them. Keep the dough in your freezer, and you are always prepared for afternoon tea emergencies.
