The original Dutch "Oreo"

Gooey. Irresistible. Sugar and spice. The humble stroopwafel is the crispy crown jewel of the Dutch food export into a cookie-charmed world. In this video, meet Alex, the son-in-law of Ruud, Amsterdam’s beloved godfather of traditional Goudse stroopwafel. Salivate as Alex spreads the stroopwafel gospel by showing you exactly how it’s made — from dough to deliciousness — and discover why this 18th-century creation is the original Dutch Oreo. Enjoy!
