Stroopwafels by jb030958


My daughter went to Holland a few years ago and she brought back this tin of Stroopwafels. I had no idea what a Stroopwafel was then, but I sure did like them. That tin was empty in no time!
I have no idea what they are either. It’s a cute tin though

@kjarn oh sorry I should have described them. They are a sort of cookie with a wafer top and bottom and a creme type center. I've seen them here now with chocolate in the middle! Also they are the perfect shape to lay on top of a tea mug!

Wikipedia :
According to Dutch culinary folklore, stroopwafels were first made in Gouda either during the late 18th century[4] or the early 19th century[2] by bakers repurposing scraps and crumbs by sweetening them with syrup. One story ascribes the invention of the stroopwafel to the baker Gerard Kamphuisen, which would date the first stroopwafels from somewhere between 1810, the year he opened his bakery, and 1840, the year of the oldest known recipe for syrup waffles.[2] Stroopwafels were not found outside Gouda until 1870, by which point the city was home to around 100 syrup-waffle bakers.[citation needed] (As, however, the Netherlands lacked a culinary tradition of waffle making,[citation needed] it is possible that the stroopwafel originated in Belgium or Flanders.)

After 1870 stroopwafels began to appear in other cites, and in the 20th century, factory-made stroopwafels were introduced. By 1960, there were 17 factories in Gouda alone, of which four are still open.[2] Today, stroopwafels are sold at markets, by street vendors, and in supermarkets, and since 2016 United Airlines has been serving stroopwafels as a breakfast snack on its domestic flights.[5][b]

As a former Dutch colony, Indonesia also inherited the dish. It is locally known as wafel setrop or wafel sirop and is often eaten with sweet dressings such as honey and sirop

@pyrrhula Thank you for all of that information! They really are delicious and I left out the part about the “syrupiness” (my own word, lol!)
