Author Notes: Speculoos is a Belgian spiced shortcrust biscuit.It's delicious to dip in milk or coffee but I also use them as a base for cheesecakes (like Graham crackers) and other crusts.My grand mother used to make these small pies even before Speculoos spread was invented a few years ago.You can find Speculoos in Montreal so I'm sure they can be found somewhere in the US as well.If you do not find them, I believe a recipe can be found online.
You can also top each pie with slices of pears to make it fruity —MarieGlobetrotter
tablespoons Speculoos spread or 4 crumbled speculoos
tablespoons brown sugar
- Preheat the oven on 300F
- For the piecrust: crumble the Speculoos biscuits in a blender. Add the melted butter and mix well to obtain a nice pie crust. Put this mixture in 6 mini pie pans, covering both the bottom and the sides.
- Whisk the mascarpone with the egg, the Speculoos spread and the brown sugar.If you are using crumbled speculoos mix everything well to obtain a smooth filling. Pour the filling onto the crust.
- Bake for 20 minutes on 300F. Let cool and serve cold.
