One of the judges said the following about our stroopwafels:
"The winner of Best Sweet went to iLoveStroopwafels.com. I did take a picture of this entry, but all you see is waxed paper with the entry tag on top. I do wish now that I had opened it up to photograph it, because it was adorable. Imagine a very thin waffle, about like a waffle cone, but softer and chewy, cut into the shape of a heart. Take two of these, and spread a thin layer of caramel-like syrup (with perhaps a hint of cinnamon) on one and stick them together to make a large sandwich cookie, and you have a stroopwafel.
The taste was surprisingly good. I donít mean I expected it not to be good. I mean that when I bit into it, it was startlingly delightful. I recommend this highly. I can imagine that one might be tempted to dress it up with vanilla ice cream or dipping part of it in chocolate, but that would be overkill. This cookie is just right as it is. I wish I had one right now.
