Speculoos and Chocolate Cookies

Hello everyone!

{Spanish here}

Today's recipe is a great one. Easy too. And, of course, delicious. It's made with speculoos spread, which is great by itself (a spoonful every once in a while can't hurt, right? Right???) but it's frankly amazing in these cookies.

They are soo good. Chewy in the middle and crispy on the outside, just how I like them. I brought them to class, so my classmates could taste them and to avoid the temptation at home. I mean, I would have devoured them in one sitting, my self restraint is efficient like that.

The drizzle on top is just great. The cinnamon and speculoos spread mix gives the cookies an extra spiced flavor. And you won't be able to wait for it to dry!
