What are stroopwafels? In Dutch, stroop means syrup and wafel means, well, waffle. Stroopwafels are made with an iron where a dough is cooked into a thin cookie, then the cookie is split in two. A syrup like caramel is spread across the inside of one half and then the other half is sandwiched on top. A caramel cookie sandwich is the result. And possibly the best treat to accompany coffee ever created. Stroopwafels are form the town of Gouda (pronounced: how-da) in the Netherlands and they have been made there for over 200 years (or nearly 200 years depending on who you believe). They weren't available outside of Gauda until 1870! So I guess they tend to travel slowly. Maybe that is why it has taken so long for them to arrive in the United States. Making our homemade stroopwafels: Unless the process is industrialized, making a stroopwafel is much more labor intensive than a normal cookie or say a muffin. And with our stroopwafels you can taste every bit of thought, hard work and love we put into them. We hope you enjoy them!
