Waffle Cookies

These little darlings are just sweet enough to make kids and adults alike believe they are cookies. And they are such a novelty no one will think twice!  I tried tossing in a few dried tart cherries, and they did well, so now it's time to try adding a few more healthy ingredients.  Nuts? Coconut? Raisins? Chocolate? The possibilities are endless.

Thanks, Mary Ellen, for sharing your real "Belgian wafel" recipe.  =)

The healthier version is listed here...the original recipe is noted in parentheses, and tastes more like a regular cookie.

Waffle Cookies 
2/3 c. butter, melted  (original:  1 c.)
2/3 c. sugar (original 1 c.)
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1-1/4 c. white flour + 1-1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour (original: 3-1/8 c. white flour) (Note:  I had to use up to 1/2 c. more flour as my eggs were larger than normal.  Should be able to roll into balls easily.)

Chill.  Shape into balls.  Bake 4 at a time in waffle iron.  Hide them.
Makes approx 3 dozen.
