A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to work as a kitchen assistant for Jamie Dunn at the Taste of Home Cooking School. What does a kitchen assistant do, you ask? Well, I got to chop and prepare the ingredients for the recipes that were being made for the show. As a foodie, it was a great “behind the scenes” experience. So I decided to try these Chocolate chip waffle cookies and they turned out FANTASTIC!!!
Taste of Home was also nice enough to give me a couple of magazines to take home and a free one-year subscription to their magazine. One of the magazines I took home had a recipe for Waffle Cookies. I would never have thought to use my waffle maker for anything but waffles. The recipe was easy to make and the kids LOVED the chocolate chip waffle cookies.

In a large bowl, combine the sugars, butter, egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda; gradually add to sugar mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop batter by tablespoonfuls 1 in. apart onto a preheated waffle iron coated with cooking spray. Bake for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove to wire racks; cool completely. Dust with confectioners’ sugar if desired.
