Easy Dutch Stroopwafels

These Dutch Stroopwafels are made up of a crisp and chewy sugar cookie-like waffle base, sandwiched between a warm cinnamon Homemade Salted Caramel. These are best served over a warm mug of coffee, when the caramel gets gooey, but they are just as good room temperature!

These Dutch Stroopwafels are for episode 5 of our “Around the World Series!” From the Netherlands, Stroopwafels were created in the city of Gouda (yep, Gouda cheese is also from there) when a baker used extra breadcrumbs and added a syrup making a sweetened dough! 

Homemade Salted Caramel:

The caramel is the filling you sandwich in between the two waffle cookies! We made a seperate blog post for the Caramel which you can read here.

Now if you’ve had a packaged stroopwafel before, you know they are good! But homemade is sooo much better, tastier, and fresher! Plus it’s really fun to make them! They are time consuming, but the whole process is overall easy and so worth it, once you bite into the gooey, crisp cookie!

How to Serve them:

Stroopwafels are traditionally served over a steaming cup of coffee, keeping the coffee and the stroopwafel warm! Smart, right? But of course, they are super delicious just served on their own!

What Makes These Easy?

Traditionally, in a Stroopwafel, the cookie it sliced in half, spread with caramel, and is then sandwiched together. We find that since they are super thin, it’s hard to slice them in half, and can be a bit dangerous. So we just skip the cutting part! It’s a whole lot easier, and you can’t even tell the difference!

Dutch Stroopwafels


Description

These Dutch Stroopwafels are made up of a crisp and chewy sugar cookie-like waffle base, sandwiched between a warm cinnamon Homemade Salted Caramel. These are best served over a warm mug of coffee, when the caramel gets gooey, but they are just as good room temperature!


Ingredients

Units Scale

For cookie:

4 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup melted butter

1 1/2 cups white sugar

4 and 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast

1/2 cup lukewarm milk (80 degrees F.)

1 large egg

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. salt

Homemade Salted Caramel Recipe.


Instructions

1. To a stand mixer, add all of your ingredients. Flour, butter, sugar, active dry yeast, milk, egg, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Knead that with a dough hook attachment, until it’s fully combined, about 5 minutes. It should look something like cookie dough. Cover with plastic wrap, and let that rest for 45 minutes.

2. Once the dough is done resting, preheat and grease a waffle cone maker or stroopwafel iron. Divide and shape the dough into 40 even balls. Place each dough ball one at a time onto the preheated waffle cone maker, and cook for about 1-2 minutes, or until lightly golden. They should be very thin.

3. Immediately, while it’s still hot, cut the stroopwafel with a round cookie cutter. Don’t wait too long, or the stroopwafel will harden, and won’t cut easily!

4. Pipe, or spread the caramel on one of the stroopwafels, and place another stroopwafel over it sandwiching them together.

5. Serve and enjoy!
