    I’m overwhelmed with joy as we enter into December. It’s such a festive season filled with lights, wonder, endless activities, songs and movies that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside and scents of cookies baking, fresh greens and coffee brewing.

    Through the month of December, my mom would brew flavored coffee that would fill our home with a beautiful aroma and now I’ve found my own coffee to create the same effect, the new Green Mountain Coffee® Cinnamon Sugar Cookie. ‘Tis the season!

    I’m excited to celebrate the joys of the season with family and friends. As you know, I love to entertain, but now that I’m more limited in time, I entertain a little differently. These incredible stroopwafels are perfect for a morning coffee get together, but also stack beautifully {in a smaller portion} to make a great gift to go along with a Keurig® K55 brewer.

    Last month when I was en route to San Francisco anticipating the usual dry pretzels and prepared to decline when the flight attendant passed me something that caught my eye – a stroopwafel! Hesitant, I took a bite. It was good, but then I started reading the package. You can place it on top of a hot cup of coffee or cocoa to warm the caramel-like syrup inside. I was sold.

    What is a stroopwafel?

    Two layers of baked dough with caramel filling to create a crispy one of a kind cookie that originated in the Netherlands. United Airlines serves this popular treat on their morning flights where I first enjoyed it.

    • ½ tsp cinnamon
    • ½ c sugar
    • 2 eggs
