This post is sponsored in conjunction with ChristmasCookiesWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the ChristmasCookiesWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
For my third Christmas Cookies Week recipe, I wanted to try a little something different. I ran across this recipe for Waffle Iron Cookies from Taste of Home on Pinterest, and they looked so fun to make! Though I own two waffle irons, both of them are considered "Belgian" models. I used the one that seemed more shallow of the two, and just allowed extra time for them to cook.
The original recipe called for a dusting of powdered sugar, but I thought I'd make them a little more festive with a glaze and some sprinkles. I love how they collect in the little squares. Since my iron was a little deeper than a regular one, I got 24 cookies from the recipe. They disappeared very, very quickly. Thanks so much to Judy T. for sharing her recipe!
