Waffle Iron Cookies

Written by Tad. Posted in Cookies

I recently shared a recipe I got from a Daughters of the Utah Pioneers cookbook my wife got from our friend, Louise. This is the only other recipe in that book that was unusual enough to interest me. Who every heard of cooking cookies in a waffle iron rather than baking them? Obviously, they look like no other cookie you have ever seen before. We only have a Belgian waffler you heat on the cooktop. I am pretty sure the author (Mary Nordin) used a regular waffle iron, which would probably be a bit easier.

    Tad, we make a chocolate Cookie like this on a regular waffle iron and then put a fab of green frosting on top and call them “Turtles”.

      How fun! I had never heard of such a thing before. Green icing sounds great!
