Dutch Stroopwafels, or Syrup Waffle

Stroopwafels are a yeasted cookies, cooked with a shallow waffle cookie press, split down the middle and filled with a gooey butterscotch filling.

A couple of years back my colleagues and I would buy these Dutch cookies almost every day at a grocery store on the way to work. And we were not alone, the store could not keep up with the demand. And then one day there were none ever to be found again, we were very upset. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw this month’s Daring Kitchen challenged was to make Stroopwafels, the very cookies I missed so much.
