Grandma’s Waffle Cookies

It's Pie Time!

I now bake enough for and army every year.  I give a lot of it away, and eat more than I should.  Hey, It’s just once a year!

Now, my Waffle Cookie Recipe.  These are so yummy!  Don’t ask how many calories we are looking at here, because I don’t want to know.   I really have no clue.  This recipe make a gazillion cookies!  Seriously!  That is a number…a gazillion.  It is huge!  You can cut it in half!  They also freeze really well!  Great for putting in a gallon ziploc in the back of the Freezer and finding them in February!  What a nice surprise.

Shhh…..don’t tell anybody, but you can also dip them in melted chocolate….dark or white!  So good!  These are great with a cup of coffee or cocoa, or just by themselves.  Oh, and you need a waffle iron to make them.   You guys will have to tell me what you think of my Grandma’s Waffle Cookies!

  • 8 eggs

  • 1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 Cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • about 9 Cups of flourDSCN3215


Plug in Waffle Iron to preheat. DSCN3232

Melt Butter.  Mix with the sugars until well blended.DSCN3217

Add eggs and vanilla, mix on medium speed for 2 minutes.DSCN3222DSCN3224

Add salt, baking soda, and enough flour to make dough stiff (about 9 cups give or take.)
It all depends on where you live and the humidity.  I used 9 1/4 cups today in Florida!DSCN3227

Roll into walnut size balls and place in waffle iron about 2 minutes or until done.  I used my handy cookie scoop!  Much faster.DSCN3233

This is a great job for an older child! Because….It is time consuming. DSCN3234DSCN3236


This is only about half of the cookies...minus what we already ate! :)

For Dairy Free just use Dairy Free Margarine or Crisco instead of butter.

  1. We are making these right now. I halved the recipe because I only had 4 eggs and we still have a TON of cookies! These are super yummy too. I added some Craisins to a few and that was great too. I might also try adding orange or almond extract next time I make them.

  2. How excited as I!! When I was 9 we lived in a very poor neighborhood. There was this lady living across the alley from us. She would invite my sister and I over to curl our hair in rags and make waffle cookies. I have been looking for this recipe for 42 years! Thank you for making my day. I can’t wait to make these with my grandchildren. Bless you!

  3. How cute! If I had a waffle iron, I’d make em. They also look like snowflakes…well the edges do anyways :)

  4. We add cocoa to our to make the superlicious!!

  5. I’m wondering if you could add chocolate chips??? Or would I be better off melting milk chocolate chips and dipping the cookie in it?

  6. I made these over the weekend and they are awesome! I cut the recipe in half and it still made a ton. I drizzled milk and white chocolate on top and it adds a little extra sweetness. I am definitely going to be making these in the future.
