    Stroopwafel = Dutch Caramel Syrup Cookies

    My fiance lived in Amsterdam for a year, and as a lover of all things sweet he soon discovered one of the most popular Dutch cookies: the Stroopwafel / Syrupwaffle.

    Stroopwaffels, Stroopwaffles, or Stroopwafels (also known as Dutch caramel cookies) are two thin, hard waffle-indented round biscuits, wedged together with a caramel syrup.

    They are a bit too sweet for my taste, but definitely seem very popular and in recent years I have noticed that they have become available in supermarkets all over Europe and even in the Middle East.

    Some prefer their syrup cookies slightly warm, so you can simply balanced your stroop wafel on top of your cup of hot coffee or tea for a minute or so. This melts the syrup and makes the whole affair even gooeyier (is that a word? haha!)

    Bring Home Some Siroopwafelen!!

    A soon empty box!!

    Bring a box home and indulge! They sell them everywhere - but I didn't think about getting mine until I was in the airport coming home - I am glad I did! Each one has a soft layer of caramel sandwiched between two crispy textured waffle layers!! They were delicious, and the box of 10 didn't last long.

    There are various brands to choose between. Mine were called "Gouda's Gilde". According to the blurb on the box, these syrup waffles are baked to a secret original recipe dating back to 1864 using the finest cream and butter!!

    I guess they are a just a little fattening then!
