Waffle Cookies


I  had the waffle maker out to make waffles for the kiddos for breakfast.  As I was making them I remembered that I had a recipe to make waffle cookies…now if only I could remember which recipe book the recipe was in….  After a short hunt I found it.

Being these cookies are so unusual I thought I would add some pictures showing how I made them.  (My waffle iron is ANCIENT but it works wonderfully so just ignore it’s lack of beauty)




Yummy looking right??  Well if you want a chance to give the recipe a try, here it is:

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup shortening
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa

Cream the sugar and shortening.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Beat until smooth.  Add dry ingredients.  Drop a heaping teaspoon full on a hot waffle iron.  Close.  Watch carefully as they only take a minute to bake.  Frost when cool.

They are a little tedious to make but a fun change up from regular cookies.  The childcare kids had fun with the frosting.

On a frosting note I make a chocolate cream cheese frosting that I don’t have a recipe for…something like this

3 tablespoons butter softened
3 ounces cream cheese softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
Enough powdered sugar to make it the consistency you want

Mix and frost.

The recipe really doesn’t make a lot of cookies.  I would be tempted to double it but making these four a time in the waffle maker is a little tedious.

Playing Catch Up


Wow…am I ever on a different clock.  I sat down to the computer and looked and I didn’t have a blog post up.  Then I thought that’s okay.  I often take Sunday nights off from blogging but then it dawned on me.  It’s not Sunday.  It’s Monday.

I took today off as a vacation day from childcare.  So today I actually started working on Kalissa’s wedding quilt.  Kelli was here and we had a plan of attack.  She would start cutting…I would start sewing.  Hubby had a meeting tonight so that gave me a free pass to the quilting room too so we cut and sewed and cut and sewed making some progress.  She is almost done cutting but I am far from done sewing.

Plans are for her to be back on Saturday to finish up the cutting…hopefully I’ll have made lots more progress by then but before I get back to the quilting room I have to tackle my dining room table….

It’s filled with goodies that retreaters brought for me.  I can’t tell you how blessed I feel…goodies for me and even goodies for my childcare kiddos.  Thank you-thank you!!  I had some chocolate from Mary today…AMAZING!!  Hubby had some chocolate from Dorrine..wonderful too.

This week it’s my goal to find a place to put all the little keepsakes.  I said something to Hubby hinting that maybe he could finish up on the cabinet that is going in the sewing room and his reply was-”What do you think I did the time you were gone?”  He’s watching out for me too I guess.

In our sorting and clean up we found this ruler that was left at Deb’s in West Union.  Is this anyone’s??

We also heard that Nell (West Union group) is missing her square ruler.  It’s a square “cut for a cure” ruler.  I am wondering if someone grabbed the wrong one by accident.  If you could just drop me a note I’ll do my best to help get these returned to the right owners.  Here’s my email….  rogjok@iowatelecom.net.

That wraps up today.  I am off to bed….I’ll catch you in the morning.    If you’re looking for more info the retreat check out Bonnie’s blog and Doris’ blog.
