She came over last night after dinner and once we'd had some wine and watched "Iron Man," it seemed like a logical next step to take some of the cookie dough I had in my freezer and see what would happen if we tried to cook it in my waffle maker.
As you can see, they turned out pretty well:
I have to disagree with the estimate of 90 seconds. They really took a good four or five minutes to be done enough to hold together, although that could have something to do with the fact that my waffle iron is 15 years old. The cookie texture was nice and soft with just a hint of crispiness on the edges.
I'm sure it was psychological, but both of us thought they tasted like a weird hybrid of waffle and cookie. I used white chocolate macadamia nut dough, but there was a distinct waffle-y flavor that almost overrode the cookie flavors. Still tasty, though.
We made a total of four and I probably could have eaten more, but decided that two was plenty.
So if you have a tub of cookie dough from some kid's fundraiser that's languishing in your freezer, this is something fun you can do the next time you're in the mood for a cookie or two. If you decide to try it, let me know how it worked out for you.
