Waffle Cookies

My Oma routinely made waffle cookies for family gatherings, and I thought I'd share the recipe with you, since they were always a big hit.  Here are the ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 cups of flour
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1.5 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 pound of unsalted butter, softened (NOT melted); don't get a light version
  • waffle maker
Sounds healthy, right?  Haha, it's not supposed to be.  It's just supposed to taste delicious!  I don't know how common it is for people to have waffle makers, but they're pretty inexpensive and you can get one at lots of places, including Target.


Combine all ingredients into a large bowl.  Mix until well blended.  Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.  After it's chilled, roll up the mixture into small balls.  Place a ball on each quadrant of the waffle maker and depress.  The cookies are done when they are mostly medium brown in color, with light edges.  Remove them from the waffle maker and let them cool.  Continue the process until you've used up all of the mixture.  Here is what the finished product will look like:
