Speculaas are a traditional Dutch biscuit or cookie baked on St. Nicholas' Eve (Dec. 5).
PREHEAT OVEN TO 325F. Mix all ingredients but the almonds and candied fruit peel together. Add milk until it makes a stiff paste that can be rolled out. Roll into sheets and then press blanched almonds and chopped candied peel on top, if you desire. Cut into rectangles roughly 2-by-4-inches and transfer to a greased cooking sheet. Bake until light brown.
