A few weeks back, A came home from the health food store across the street with a bag full of stroopwafel. I was delighted. Have you ever had a stroopwafel? It's a chewy syrup soaked thin waffle cookie from Gouda, in the Netherlands, that maintains a crispness and finely pressed texture that's incredibly delicious. I had my first stroopwafel at a bakery not too far from our hotel in Amsterdam. If you can find them, pick some up and enjoy with a hot cup of coffee. They are better when warm and gooey, fresh from the bakery, but they aren't bad from the box either; in fact, you will wish you knew about them sooner.
