This great idea was uploaded to our Offbeat Home Flickr pool. Erinandaaron12 blew my mind by letting us know that you can “bake” cookies in a waffle iron. Adding that it’s “super-fast and fun!”

Now who’s breaking out their waffle iron and favorite cookie recipe today?

Comments on Bake cookies in a waffle iron

    • If you’re not a fan of cleaning your waffle iron, I suggest sticking to a basic cookie recipe that doesn’t include anything melty and isn’t rolled in sugar. I’m also thinking that a dense cookie probably won’t cook through in the waffle iron, though you might be able to finish it in the oven.
      We tried doing the Pinterest cook your cinnamon rolls in your waffle iron, and there’s still sugar-cinnamon-gunk in there.

    • I’d try 60-90 seconds and fine tune from there. Typically you’re making 4 at a time, so if one batch doesn’t turn out, you can re-calibrate without ruining half your dough.

      • Yep, I usually do mine at 1 min 15 sec. (my waffle iron is from the late 70’s, though!) Definitely do a test one first. Also, they work better with the smaller grid waffle irons, belgian waffle irons didn’t seem to work as well for me.

  1. It also works with brownie mix, but as I was not the one manning the waffle iron, I don’t know the crucial details.

    • How did I not know this?! Brownie-waffles sound AMAZING! (Especially served warm with ice cream… mmmm…)

  2. We always made cookies like this called Turtles. They were soft chocolate cookies, and you frost them with green frosting so that the waffle pattern shows through the frosting.

    This is a recipe that would probably work. I looked but couldn’t find anyone who used green frosting like we did.

  3. I’ve seen this on Pinterest using refrigerated cinnamon-roll dough. It always seems too good to be true!

  4. I’ve done this. Just used regular chocolate chip cookie dough. The ended up more doughy than cookies usually are. Great to serve with ice cream and look all fancy!

  5. OMG! That’s my picture! I’ve made two kinds of waffle cookies, chocolate chip and snickerdoodle. (the ones above are snickerdoodle) The chocolate chip is definitely easier. I have a *perfect* recipe that works beautifully at sea level, but not at altitude. Since moving to Colorado, I have been trying to find the perfect ratio of ingredients without avail. Snickerdoodles also worked well, but @Dootsie Bug is right, the sugar on the outside makes a mess. I always get a ton of compliments on them every time I make them. 🙂

    Let me know if anyone is interested in my recipe(s) and I’ll post them somewhere.

    • Ha. I’ve lived in Colorado for 20 years and I feel your high altitude pain lol. It’s super rare to find recipes that have been adjusted for baking here and I never, ever buy boxed pancake/biscuit mix for this reason. (Cake mixes usually have high altitude directions in the tiny print.) I did find this website, tho, which is specifically for Colorado residents, I swear.

  6. Awesome, I don’t know that waffle iron can make cookies. My kids love cookies very much, I will surely try your recipe to make it for them and hope they will love it. Thank you so much for sharing this.
