Sprinkles For Breakfast Birthday Recipes Confetti Waffle Cookies

QUICK AND EASY CONFETTI COOKIES YOU CAN MAKE WITH A WAFFLE IRON.

I originally bought a waffle maker to make these Birthday Cake Waffles – which, in case you were wondering, I thoroughly enjoyed. But it turns out waffle makers are not JUST for waffles. They can also be used to make cookies! And the best part is, it bakes these cookies up in just 2 to 3 minutes! That’s the kind of immediate gratification I like to see.

These Confetti Waffle Cookies were actually the inspiration for my Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies. But for some reason, I never posted the original Confetti version. So here we are.

So are these just mini waffles? No. A regular waffle recipe is meant to be light and airy. This recipe creates a denser final product that is more in line with a thick sugar cookie than a waffle. But the waffle maker acts as a super fast oven – baking your cookies in no time -and it gives these cookies those awesome waffle ridges that trap all that delicious icing.

HOW TO USE THE WAFFLE MAKER

My waffle maker is non-stick – so I don’t use any sort of cooking spray or butter before putting the dough on. I just turn it on high and let it heat up. Once it is ready to go, I use a cookie scoop to drop balls of dough onto the bottom iron. They don’t have to be a perfect ball and they don’t have to be perfectly centered. Once you close your iron, it will even out the dough for you. Then you just let them sit for 2 minutes. Open your waffle iron to see how they are doing. If they have started to turn golden brown, they are ready to go! If they are still pretty pale, close the iron and let them sit for another minute before checking again.

For these cookies, I suggest icing them while they are still a little warm. The glaze seems to be able to adhere to the cookies better this way. And then make sure you let the cookies dry on a cooling rack (with a piece of parchment underneath). This lets all the extra icing drip off. And then of course, sprinkle away!

  1. I am planning on making these for my cookie plates for Christmas. Do you dip the whole cookie or just the top? I have the small scoop so it makes a better size for the plates and I will have to go to goodwill to get the smaller depth (I already have the belgian).
    Thank you – cute idea

    1. I just dipped the top part in! But you can totally use a spoon and just spoon the icing over the top as well. Either works. Excited for you to try these!

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. โ›„๏ธ

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles โค๏ธ
