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?

    • 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. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
