SOUVENIRS – Stroopwafels

WHILST neighbour Belgium may have its waffles, Holland most certainly has its stroopwafels, a unique type of cookie that’s been around for centuries, but in 1784 was only known in Gouda. Made with 2 waffle-type caramel filled wafers, the waffle is cooked at a very high temperature on a waffle iron then sliced in half. The syrup is then spread on at which point the two halves come together once again.

Stroopwafels

These syrup waffle recipes are generally guarded secrets that are passed down from parent to child, generation after generation. Good recipes are notoriously difficult to find, in fact even if a good recipe is found,  there’s a tremendous amount of specialized equipment needed to bake a proper stroopwafel. All of which is why, given the opportunity, one should bring back as many home as possible! For all your stroopwafel need, just visit gouda-original.com for the real authentic goods.
