Red Velvet Waffle Iron Cookies from JensFavoriteCookies.com - SO fast and easy to make, with a red velvet cake mix!Some days I like baking complicated desserts that require long amounts of time to prepare.  I like the love that goes into a good dessert like that.

And other days, I just don’t want to mess with it.  You know?

These are the days I love cake mix cookies.  Simple, delicious, very customizeable… cake mix cookies save the day.

And, as long as we are talking about baking heroes, I may as well bring up the waffle iron.  The waffle iron has been gaining ground in recent months, as a tool that is great for more than just waffles.  Did you know you can bake cinnamon rolls in that thing?

Upsides to using a waffle iron: you don’t have to heat up the oven and consequently the whole kitchen, and stuff cooks in half the time.  Downsides:  You can only cook a few at a time.

Even heroes have their flaws.

I always think waffle iron cookies are best eaten warm.  I like to let the icing melt onto the cookie.  That combination of warm cookie + cool icing is heavenly. Mmmmmm.

These cookies required some extra flour to make them stiff enough to bake in the waffle iron, but that same combination makes them turn rock solid within a day or so.  Trust me, you’re going to want to eat them warm.

There are lots of great waffle cookie recipes out there.  I love this one for Molasses Waffle Iron Cookies with Chocolate Frosting.  They are a delicious winter-flavor option.

But basically, waffle iron cookies are fabulous any time of year!

Molasses Waffle Cookies with Chocolate Frosting

Ginger cookies with molasses;  These easy ginger molasses cookies are made in a waffle iron and topped with chocolate frosting.

ginger-cookies-with-molassesIt’s fall, and I have a lot of cookie recipes planned to share with you.

A LOT.  So many, in fact, I was having trouble deciding which to share first.

I polled my Facebook fans… most of them voted for an eggnog cookie.  I polled my children… they voted for cookies I’ve already made.  I polled my friends… many of them suggested an apple pie cookie.

Oh, the decisions!

Here’s the thing.  I already made an Apple Pie Cookie.  Alright, the photos are pretty bad (practice makes perfect, right?) but the cookies are pretty good.  And I have ideas for eggnog cookies but I haven’t worked out the details yet.  And I don’t have any eggnog in the fridge today.  (If you’re having eggnog dessert cravings, I recommend these bars or these cookies.  Both excellent, if I do say so myself.)

Ultimately, the deciding factor was that my life got a little nuts.  I forget what it’s like when Robb leaves town.  My already crammed full schedule gets even worse, with no support from him.  It was lucky we had dinner this week, let alone cookies.

Have you ever made cookies in the waffle iron?  Granted, you can only make 4 cookies at a time, but they cook quickly, and you don’t have to heat up your oven. Continue reading “Molasses Waffle Cookies with Chocolate Frosting” »

Cinnamon Waffle Cookies

Whose idea was it to break my vacuum the same week I got a dog?  Thanks for that, universe.  Good one.

My bedroom has been in a pretty desperate condition, overflowing with useless crap, and dirty clothes, and dust.  I just keep putting new containers on the floor.  My husband has about had it with me and the bedroom mess.  I’d love to tell you that I put it off because my vacuum broke, but honestly, I was putting it off long before that.

Today, I borrowed a vacuum from my neighbor, and tackled the bedroom.  I’m allergic to dust, so I was not really enjoying myself, but I distracted myself from the discomfort with some episodes of What Not to Wear and The Office.

Did I ever tell you how much I love having a DVR?

Chocolate Waffle Iron Cookies

A very quick recipe for a chocolate cookie baked in a waffle iron.

Source: My son’s junior high cooking class.

Yield: about 30-40 little blobs

My son is required to take this class at school which takes them through several practical vocational studies, including computers and bookkeeping, wood and metal shop, and cooking and sewing.  Surprisingly to me, he liked computers the least.  He really enjoys cooking and baking, and was very excited the day he brought home this recipe.  He made them for the family, and they disappeared in less than 30 minutes.  This is when I knew I needed to try it myself.

I have rarely come across a cookie that was easier or faster to make.  Even the stove-top no-bake cookies need time to cool.  These can be eaten in less than 10 minutes from the moment you decide to make them.  I’ll admit, they are not fancy, they don’t look cute on a nice platter.  They look like little blobs of dough that have been in a waffle iron… because that is exactly what they are.  However, when you have a house full of junior high age boys after school, and they need a snack, these are the perfect solution.
