If you give a mouse a cookie, he or she will be more willing to chip in on the cost of utilities. Soften up small housemates with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get eight strooples (an $11.96 value) at American Pressed Bakery, located in Old Greenwich.
American Pressed Bakery’s crew of cookie crafters usher packaged pairs of their signature strooples into the pleading palms and ajar jaws of salivating patrons. Birthed from baker’s scraps in Holland during the 18th century, traditional Dutch stroopwafels wed a pair of crispy, thin waffle cookies with a gooey caramel center. The traveled staff at American Pressed Bakery infuse these tempting treats with worldly flavors and flair, dubbing its reincarnation the stroople. In addition to the original flavor, the bakery concocts a Brazilian coconut stroople, an American chocolate-chip stroople, and an English toffee stroople that is quick to admonish breaches in tea etiquette.
American Pressed Bakery’s thorough staff constantly evaluates every strain of stroople, and the development of new confectionary blends is unending, as symbolized by the circular form of each cookie. In an act of sticky-sweet reciprocation, a portion of proceeds from every stroople sale goes to unique causes in the countries from which each cookie siphons inspiration.
