One of my favorite Christmas Cookies. The kids love to help make this simple Waffle Cookies Recipe! They are perfect for cookie exchanges and for gifts!
I bake enough for an army every year. I give a lot of it away, and eat more than I should. Hey, It’s just once a year!
Now, this Waffle Cookie Recipe has been made in my family for as long as I can remember. They are one of my Christmas favorites and they 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 makes 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! That is a pleasant 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!
