Servings: 15 Yield: 15 waffle cookies Active Time 30 mins Total Time 1 hr

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 16 ounce can vanilla frosting
  • Assorted colors of coarse sanding sugar

Make It

1. In a large bowl combine the eggs, sugars, and almond extract. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until pale, about 4 minutes. Beat in the butter. Beat in flour and salt until incorporated.

2. Preheat a waffle iron on high. Lightly coat waffle iron with cooking spray. Spoon 2 Tbs. batter onto each section of the waffle iron. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Using a fork, remove cookies from waffle iron. Repeat with remaining batter. Let cool.

3. Microwave frosting in 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until just melted. Dip waffle cookies into melted frosting and decorate with sanding sugar.

Variation

For chocolate waffles:
  • Substitute vanilla extract for the almond extract and reduce flour to 1 cup. Add 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, and 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon when adding the flour.
