The holidays are here and I’m excited to be in the cookie making groove. I’m joining in with the Natasha for her annual Houseful of Cookies holiday event. This year I made Belgian Waffle Cookies. These cookies are firm on the outside but oh so soft on the inside. They have just the right amount of holiday spice and will go really well with a jam or fresh fruit compote.
This recipe is totally inspired by my kiddos who love homemade waffles and cookies. The dough is pretty similar to how a waffle batter is made except it’s thick a requires a bit of rolling. My kids attacked the Belgian waffles cookies immediately. As in three batches were gone before I could take any pictures. They are really that good so I didn’t do my usual “you can only have two” mama rule.
Belgian Waffles CookiesPrint Recipe
- 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 2 sticks of butter, softened
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- pinch of nutmeg
On medium speed, cream butter, sugar, eggs, extracts until smooth and fluffy.
Reduce speed to low and add dry ingredients in two increments.
Mix until well combined.
Preheat waffle iron.
Roll and slightly flatten 1 inch round cookies.
Place four cookie rounds in waffle iron and bake for 45-60 seconds on each side.
Dust with powdered sugar and serve with fresh fruits.
Ok so mama is having a memory laps. The kids ate a bunch of cookies and I had dough left over so I would say this recipe makes 24-36 cookies. Don’t hold me to it.
Store cookies in an air tight container for 3-5 days. These cookies like most anything else taste better with age. They also freeze really well.
