  • 100 g granulated sugar
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 115 g unsalted butter, melted
  • 100 g speculoos cookie butter spread
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 170 g all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 100 g dried figs, roughly chopped


  • Combine sugars, salt, melted butter, and speculoos cookie butter spread in a mixing bowl. Mix until no lumps remain.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until batter is smooth.
  • With a large sieve, sift flour and baking soda into the batter. Fold until just combined. Do not overmix!
  • Fold in dried fig chunks, reserving a small handful for later (optional).
  • Cover mixing bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for about 30 mins.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. With an ice cream scoop, scoop out 1-2 inch spherical mounds of the chilled cookie dough onto baking sheet. Leave at least 2-3 inches between adjacent cookies and sides of the tray for spreading (about 6 cookies per large tray).
  • With the extra pieces of dried fig you set aside earlier, press a few pieces on top of each cookie dough mound (optional: skip this step if you don't care about "seeing" the fig pieces on the tops of your cookies)
  • Return tray to the fridge to chill for another 15-30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies just begin to lightly brown. Do not overbake! They should be still be soft and will firm up as they cool.
  • Let cool for 3-5 minutes on baking tray before transferring to a cooling rack. Preferably enjoy while still warm!
