One of the effects of recent events is that people are spending more time at home than ever, and in turn, cooking more meals than in recent memory. As old-fashioned comfort foods, both cookies and waffles are popular dishes to cook at home. But can you combine them by putting your favorite cookie dough in a waffle maker?
In a traditional waffle maker, cooks pour batter over the top of each griddle section, then close the clamshell top. Batter fills the deeper wells in the waffle maker surface while staying shallower over the opposite areas.
While the batter cooks, the rising action of the baking powder lets it fill the top plate of your waffle maker. In this way, the batter has its rise regulated by the segments with a higher or lower surface.
What do we get when the cooking time of a waffle is up? Those distinctly shaped sweet treats that everyone loves. Waffles are crispy on the outside and in thinner areas and fluffy inside the thick portions where the batter was allowed to rise.
Cookie dough that rises while cooking in your waffle maker develops a pleasant mixture of chewy and crispy bits. Similar to waffles, the thickness differences mean that some parts of the cookie are thin and brittle.
Lets look at this in the context of baking your cookies in an oven. Most of us are familiar with how a cookie will expand on the sheet during baking, which is partially horizontal and sometimes vertical, depending on the recipe and baking methods.
With cookies baked on a waffle maker, this effect is more pronounced. After all, there are many thick and thin sections within the same cookie. Its almost like you have many edges to the cookie and several center sections.
When you place cookies into an oven, whether its a full-sized range or a toaster oven, they are on cookie sheets. Metal cookie sheets do more than keep your cookies from making a mess in the oven.
For years we didnt own a waffle iron. Then one day I picked on up at a garage sale. I see them almost every time I shop yard sales priced for around 5. Definitely try to buy one used before paying full price.
The short clip, which currently has over 2 million views and 183,000 likes, shows a store-bought frosted sugar cookie going into a waffle maker and coming out as a totally new, crispy treat. Some commenters who tried the hack for themselves called it genius and game changing while others noted the disrespect to their favorite cookie.
It could've been that I'm used to eating these desserts at room temperature or cold, or maybe the frosting melted into the dough and made the cookie itself the center of attention, but the change was drastic.
My dear friend Melissa Bahen of Lulu the Baker just published her first book, Scandinavian Gatherings, and its absolutelystunning!I couldnt have thought of a better person to write a bookall about Scandinavian entertaining. Melissa can typically be found wearing a braid crown while whipping up something in her gorgeous farmhouse kitchen. The book is packed with tons of delicious recipes and beautiful DIY projects that are both very doable.
These cookies are sweet and buttery and taste like a freshwaffle cone intertwinedwith a sugar cookie. They would be the perfect complement to an afternoonfika, or Swedish coffee break, or as dessert. Melissa also has otherrecipes youll totally drool over including braided cardamom bread, homemade strawberry ice cream, and nutella swirl crumb cake. There are also recipes for savory meals to, everything from finger foods to main courses.

For my third Christmas Cookies Week recipe, I wanted to try a little something different. I ran across this recipe for Waffle Iron Cookies from Taste of Home on Pinterest, and they looked so fun to make! Though I own two waffle irons, both of them are considered "Belgian" models. I used the one that seemed more shallow of the two, and just allowed extra time for them to cook.
Den oprindelige opskrift krævede en støvning af pulveriseret sukker, men jeg troede, jeg ville gøre dem lidt mere festligt med en glasur og nogle sprinkler. Jeg elsker, hvordan de samler i de små firkanter. Da mit jern var lidt dybere end en regelmæssig, fik jeg 24 cookies fra opskriften. De forsvandt meget, meget hurtigt. Tak så meget til Judy T. for at dele sin opskrift!

Og så længe vi taler om bagning helte, kan jeg også bringe vaffeljernet op. Vaffeljernet har vundet jorden i de seneste måneder som et værktøj, der er godt for mere end bare vafler. Vidste du, at du kan bage kanelruller i den ting?
Disse cookies krævede noget ekstra mel for at gøre dem stive nok til at bage i vaffeljernet, men den samme kombination får dem til at vende rockfaste sig inden for en dag eller deromkring. Stol på mig, du vil gerne spise dem varme.
Disse er så sjove og så gode! De er varme og gooey ligesom en cookie og er så nemme at lave. Jeg brugte min hjerteformede ævleproducent ligesom Lina, og kan ikke vente med at prøve de andre former med denne opskrift. Hvor sjovt ville det være i andre klassiske cookie smag?! Børnene beder om disse igen allerede!
Mens jeg ikke er sikker på, at opvarmning af cookies er, hvad Mini Waffel Irons var beregnet til, kan du ikke nægte en god, innovativ Ny brug af et apparat. Og hvis du vil se mere tilfældige foodsincluding kylling nuggets, en burger og friesmashed i en mini vaffeljern, har skaberen masser af flere videoer, hvor det kom fra. Alt kan koges med en ævle jern, hvis du prøver hårdt nok!
