The most popular cookie in Belgium, this crunchy treat gets its distinguishable taste from an aromatic blend of nine spices, including cinnamon, cloves, pepper and cardamom. Traditional to 17th and 18th century, when Speculoos cookies were cut into shapes that reflected the popular trends, these cookies are carved into shapes that reflect memories of the artisan. The sweet and woody tastes align perfectly with a warm cup of your favorite coffee or tea.

When Evy Ballegeer first moved to the United States from her hometown in Belgium, she was a correspondent for a newspaper and was writing about start up companies and entrepreneurs, until one day she decided to stop writing about other people’s dreams and start living her own. Evy entered culinary school in San Francisco where, following her graduation, she created a cookie recipe that would become a delightful company called “Little Belgians.” The first year and a half Evy did everything herself – packing, labeling, marketing and even driving her orders down to her first customers! A team in Chicago now handles her sales but she is still cooking and baking, packaging and shipping every day. Although she loves her job, she still faces the challenges that many small businesses are confronted with. She once read some good advice by a fellow business owner that said, “We all face problems every day. We just have to make sure they’re new problems.” This quote has always stuck with her.
