Simple Stroopwafels at Home

We’ve all had a Stroopwafel… Right? If you haven’t, you’re surely missing out! But not to worry, we’re about to share with you an easy-peasy way of making them at home. And better yet — this recipe uses our beloved Peter’s Caramel.

A Stroopwafel is a cookie made of two thin wafer-like cookies, joined together with a caramel filling. In this recipe, our good friend Paige who works here at Gygi, actually uses a traditional Krumkake recipe. Krumkake, while Dutch, is a descendant of the Italian Pizzelle cookie! This becomes a fun (and delicious) little collision of cultures.

Instead of making a traditional caramel sauce for the inside of the cookie, we are using Peter’s Caramel because, well, it happens to be our favorite, obviously. And this cookie is a super simple way to use up your leftover caramel after dipping apples!

A new, easy take on the traditional Dutch Stroopwafel


  • 1/2 C (1 stick) Butter, melted
  • 4 Whole Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 C All Purpose Flour
  • 1 C Sugar
  • 2 Tbs Cornstarch
  • 1 Tbs Cinnamon
  • 1/2LB (About 1 C) Peter's Caramel, melted



Pour melted caramel into a sheet pan lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Let cool.


In a bowl combine melted butter, eggs and vanilla. Set aside.


In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon.


Add dry mixture to wet mixture and stir until incorporated.


Drop 1-2Tbs of the batter in a waffle cone press or pizzelle press.


Once cookies are removed from the waffle iron but still warm, use a round cookie cutter or biscuit cutter to cut an even, round shape.


Use the same cookie cutter to cut out circles from your cooled caramel.


Layer your caramel cut-outs between two cookies.


Serve immediately or store in an airtight container until serving.


Serve over a cup of hot cocoa, coffee or tea. The steam from your hot drink will help make the caramel center gooey again. You can also microwave the cookie for a few seconds to achieve the same texture.
