- ½ cup of light brown sugar
- ½ cup of superfine sugar
- ½ cup of melted butter
- 1 medium egg
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon of table salt
- ¼ teaspoon of baking soda
- ½ cup of chocolate chips
Before diving into the recipe, start preheating your waffle maker. By the time you’ve finished the cookie mixture, your waffle maker should be hot and ready.
Start off by mixing the butter and light brown sugar together, and then add in the egg and vanilla extract. Once that is well mixed together add the superfine sugar, the all-purpose flour, the table salt, the baking soda and finally the chocolate chips.
I use chocolate chips, but of course you can mix it up. Walnuts, almonds or fruits instead such as blueberries or apricots would be great in waffle cookies.
Once your mixture is ready, spray your waffle maker with cooking spray and spread the cookie mixture evenly. Most waffle makers are non-stick anyway, but using cooking spray prevents any unexpected mishaps.
Depending on what waffle maker you have, it should take between two to four minutes to fully cook. If you’re careful you will be able to remove the cookie as one whole piece — this is where the idea of a giant cookie comes from — but often the waffle cookie will fragment into smaller pieces.
