Sugar Waffles for your Sugar Pie...

I love crispy cookies and I'm especially fond of Pizzelles. So, when I came across this recipe for Sugar Waffles from King Arthur Flour, I thought these were worth a try. I used my heart-shaped waffle iron, as was called for, but you can use a regular waffle iron, just not Belgium-style. Someone on the their blog asked if you could use a Pizzelle iron, and even though I also own one of those, I opted for the "deeper" affect that a waffle iron would give. These cookies incorporate a couple of unique ingredients: malted milk powder and Vanilla Butternut flavoring. I used both so I would know how they were meant to taste before I started inventing other flavors. Here's the King Arthur Flour's version: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/sugar-waffles-recipe
These really turned out quite delicious; the perfect crunch, the perfect sweetness, and the perfect size.  However, since I'm such a chocoholic, no doubt I'll try a chocolate version, either flavored or dipped, especially with Valentine's Day just around the corner.  Enjoy!

  4. I totally understand. If it wasn't for my daughter, this blog wouldn't be possible. She set up the new template and made it more user-friendly. And yes, Kel, I am in the Valentine's Day mode, thinking how much I LOVE my family and know we'll all get through the tough things together.
