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.

    I make these cookies and they are a family favorite. I have an old waffle iron too and it works just fine and fits into a farmhouse kitchen like mine.

    If your family likes cinnamon rolls, take the rolls and put them on the waffle iron, hold it down for 2 minutes and you have cinnamon roll waffles. I’ve done this and they are yummy! Little glaze on top or syrup! Even better!

    This looks good. Wondering if you could make a waffle size one and then cut while hot into 4 cookies so you could make 8 at a time.

    These were my favorite cookies when I was in grade school. I might have to dig out the waffle iron. And give them a try.

    My waffle iron is now 50 years old and still working like a champ. No need to replace something that still works like it’s suppose to.
