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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
