Makes about 3 dozen cookies
Here’s what you will need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
2 sticks butter, unsalted
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons red food coloring
PAM cooking spray
Cream Cheese Glaze:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk
Pinch of salt
Red and pink sprinkles, optional
Reddi-wip for garnish
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and cocoa powder. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, sugar, and salt until smooth (about 4 or 5 minutes). Mix to combine.
Turn the mixer to medium and add the eggs one at a time until incorporated. Then mix in the vanilla and red food coloring. Finally, set the mixer on low speed and slowly add the flour. The batter will be sticky.
Next, turn on your waffle iron, lightly spray with PAM cooking spray, 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 are golden brown. Let the cookies cool and crisp up on a wire rack.
For the glaze, beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar and salt until smooth. Slowly begin to incorporate the milk until you achieve the desired consistency. You may not need all of the milk. Dip the tops of each cookie into the glaze and return them to the cooling rack. Decorate with sprinkles. Serve with a whoosh of Reddi-wip.
