De Strawberry Short Wafel is A Great Winter Treat

I must admit I was a bit skeptical when Wafels & Dinges announced their newest creation, De Strawberry Short Wafel. It sounds like a delicious option for summer time when strawberries are fully in season, but here we are in the mildly freezing month of January. And while I know that strawberries are now available yearlong, it’s still not the first flavor I’d think of for the winter.

Of course, that didn’t stop me from trying it. And I must say that the waffle geniuses in that big yellow truck have figured out a way to winterize strawberries. It’s not the prettiest of desserts, but it’s mighty tasty. Instead of fresh cream and honey, they spread a layer of sweet and tart mascarpone cheese on a warm liege waffle and then top it with cinnamon sugar, crumbled spekuloos cookies, and the aforementioned berries. The strawberries have a surprising crunchy caramelized sensation since they’ve been coated with cookie crumbs. Together the ingredients give this a rich, spiced flavor that is somehow reminiscent of Christmas in July. The winter treat is available at all their locations (including the extended Bryant Park kiosk) through next week.
