Sinterklaas is a very special festivity around family and children. This day, 6th december, smells specially to speculoos (the traditional Sinterklaas cookies in Belgium) or pepernoten (in Holland). It is a very Christmas smell, is like “Allpice” smell (cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves) and is delicious and OBVIOUSLY! The children love it.
To celebrate start os Sinterklaas season, I baked a very tiny doughnuts -for my children- which they found “Exquisite!”. Baked with allspice, filled with mascarpone cheese and speculoos cream, and very simple decoration, allusive to the Sint colors; this delightful treats, are perfect to go with the favorite autumn and winter drink. Warm chocolate milk!
