An Intro *Plus* Waffle Cookies

Hi!  My name is JeNae.

Yep.  I can be a goofball in the kitchen when it comes to baking.  Which, by the way, is one of my most favorite things.  Baking, Cooking, and Photography are what keeps me creatively going {and maybe a little crafting on the side}.

Today I thought I would share one of my most favortite cookie recipes.  Want to see????

Bam! 

There you go.  One my most favorite cookies I've have had growing up.  These lovelies are my families "Waffle Cookies" {I bet you can't guess why ;) }

These cookies start with a nice fudgy dough......thick and chocolatety.

 Plopped into a hot waffle iron {plopped because of it's thickness}


 And sprinkled with powdered sugar


Lot's of powdered sugar.


And because I have a Belgian waffle maker, my cookies came out thick & big.......but I don't mind ;)


Waffle Cookies
1 Cup of Butter {melted}
4 {heaping} TBL of Cocoa
1 1/2 Cups of Sugar
4 Eggs {slightly beaten}
2 Tsp Vanilla
2 Cups of Flour
  1. Preheat waffle iron
  2. In a mixing bowl combine: butter, cocoa, sugar, eggs, & vanilla.
  3. Slowly mix in the flour; you want a nice thick dough.  Add more or less according to those guidelines.
  4. Spray down your waffle iron & plop down some dough.  Cook as you would any other waffle.
  5. When cooked, place onto a wire rack; let it cool for just a bit; sprinkle with powedered sugar.
  6. Enjoy!
