These Waffle Cookies are so delicious! Made in a waffle iron and topped with a maple glaze they are a unique and tasty cookie everyone is going to love.
It’s Fall Cookie Week! Let’s talk about today’s cookie (All the FCW recipes can be found here in case you missed any). Today I’m so excited to share my recipe for Waffle Cookies with Maple Glaze!
That’s right, 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.
How do you Make Waffle Cookies?
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.
So unique and simple, right? These Waffle Cookies will definitely add some interest and delight to any cookie tray. They are ideal for the holiday gifts, too.
Waffle Cookie Recipe:
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
2 cups all-purpose flour
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.
