This recipe makes hands down the best Stroopwafles I've ever tasted. For the syrup I replaced the dark corn syrup with light (the one with a touch of vanilla), and I made sure the brown sugar was dark as opposed to the light browns...I don't know if this made much of a difference, but oh my heavens I've never had a more perfect Stroopwafle!

If you don't have a pizelle iron (to make the wafles) has a gorgeously latticed one...

Waffle cookies

* 4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 cup granulated sugar
* 1 cup unsalted butter
* 2 large eggs
* 1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
* 1/2 cup warm water


* 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar (I used dark brown sugar)
* 1 cup unsalted butter
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 6 tablespoons dark corn syrup (I used light with a touch of vanilla)


1. Preheat a pizzelle iron.
2. To Make Waffles: Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Cut butter into the flour. Mix in the sugar, cinnamon, eggs and yeast mixture. Mix well and set aside to rise for 30 to 60 minutes.
3. Roll dough into 12 small balls; Squeeze each ball into the preheated pizzelle iron and bake for about 30 seconds. Cut the waffles into two thin waffles and spread with filling.
4. To Make Filling: In a saucepan boil the brown sugar, the remaining one cup of the butter, cinnamon (this is a must-have ingredient), and dark corn syrup until it reaches the soft ball stage (234-240°F, 112-115°C), stirring constantly.
5. To Assemble: Cut each waffle (only if home-made waffles) into 2 thin waffles and spread with filling. Repeat this process until all the filling is used. If using store bought, simply spread about 1 tablespoon of filling on one waffle cookie, let it cool about 1 minute, and squeeze a second cookie on top.
6. Makes 12 servings (more if using store-bought). Best if eaten after they've cooled, less messy that way!
7. Tip: Try eating stroopwafel by resting it over a warm cup of coffee or tea -- the steam will warm these up just right.

I'm not a huge waffle cookie fan but I have to say that I still want this latticed pizelle waffle maker.
Badly, I tell you, BADLY! It makes me want to divorce my husband, register for this waffle maker and remarry him. It's that serious!

So you can use pizelle irons for stroopwaffles?
