The giveaway has ended. Congrats to the winner, Donna P! Enjoy your new KitchenAid Stand Mixer!

Today’s Fall Cookie Week (FCW) post is special because it’s Friday (Yay!), and it includes a giveaway!

Yep, I decided to make FCW extra sweet by giving away a KitchenAid Mixer. With the holidays fast approaching, I figured this would be the time to do so. Whether you need a mixer for yourself or would like to gift someone with one, this is your chance if you’re the lucky winner. Hooray!

But first, let’s talk about today’s cookie (All the FCW recipes can be found here in case you missed any). Then I’ll tell you more about the giveaway. Cool?

Today we are trying something totally different. We’re baking cookies in a waffle iron: Cinnamon Waffle Cookies with Maple Glaze.

I know. I know. My inner Leslie Knope just exploded.

People love waffles and people love breakfast for dinner, so why not bite-sized waffles coated in a maple glaze? You can eat them any time of the day. It’s genius.

These cookies are a bit time consuming because you can only “bake” four at once (depending on the size of your waffle iron.), but they bake quickly, and I think the results make the time totally worth it.

You wouldn’t think this technique would work, but it does. The cookies come out of the waffle iron feeling a bit soft and waffle-like. Once they start to cool, they get a semi-firm, almost-crusty exterior which makes them much more cookie-like.

And since waffles aren’t complete without maple syrup, these cookies get dipped into a maple syrup glaze. – Be sure to use pure maple syrup. It makes a big difference.

I have to recommend Finding Home Farms maple syrup because it’s the bomb.

You may recognize that name. Finding Home Farms is also the name of the blog of my friend and fabulous entrepreneur Laura! (She coordinated the Fall Home Tour series.) Anyway, check out her syrup. You’ll love it.

Cinnamon Waffle Cookies with Maple Glaze

Makes about 3 dozen cookies

Here's what you will need:
2 sticks butter, unsalted
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour

Maple Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth (about 4-5 minutes). Add the salt and cinnamon. Mix to combine.

Turn the mixer to medium and add the eggs one at a time until incorporated.

Set the mixer to low and slowly add the flour. The batter will be sticky.

Next, turn on your waffle iron and set the temperature to medium-high (400 degrees F). Add about a tablespoon of dough to each section of the waffle iron. "Bake" for 2-4 minutes or until the cookies golden brown. Let the cookies cool and crisp up on a wire rack.

For the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar, maple syrup, and salt until smooth. (If the mixture seems too thick, you can thin it with a little milk.) Dip the tops of each cookie into the glaze and return them to the cooling rack to set. Pack and store your waffle cookies in an air-tight container.

So unique and simple, right? These will definitely add some interest and delight to any cookie tray. They are ideal for the holiday gifts, too.

    These waffle cookies look like snowflakes. Perfect for the holidays and I’m sure Santa would love them with his glass of milk. Wonderful cookie recipe series. Oh yea… I’ll have my mixer in lime green; pretty please! Mine is cream and after 25 years of abuse, it’s still a stallion. I call it my “big mama”. Thanks for sharing and giving.

    Been having trouble entering the sweepstakes. I’ve followed you on Pinterest, Instagram, etc since you opened an account (years). This sweepstakes entry system isn’t giving me credit for already following you on Instagram & Pinterest & Linkedin. Only gave me 4 entries out of all of the things I did. Hope that’s enough to have a “fighting chance”
