On the 4th Day of Christmas Cookies Around the World I bring to you a Dutch Stroopwafels recipe. In my Facebook post where I asked you all what your favorite Christmas cookies are, many of you said stroopwafels. So, here today I have stroopwafels that I made using my mini pizzelle iron because that’s what I have. And it works. You can get one of those at our store or you could also get a waffle cone iron that would work well too (and be more traditional).
Stroopwafels are one of the most popular cookies from the Netherlands. They’re made out of two sweet waffles which are held together by a syrupy caramel filling.
Yes, my stroopwafel wafers are thicker. That’s because I found it difficult to slice them in half. I did succeed with a few of them, so it IS possible. I just takes some practice. Traditionally, stroopwafels are sliced in half, so if you can manage it, go for it. But if not, it’s okay to just use two wafers and sandwich the caramel between them.
