Mixed spices, speculaas spices, cookie spices or pudding spice, is a British/Dutch blend of sweet spices, similar to the pumpkin pie spice used in the United States. Cinnamon is the dominant flavour, with nutmeg and allspice. It is often used in baking (the typical airline cookies), or to complement fruits or other sweet foods.
