Chocolate chip cookie waffles

Hack your waffle iron with this simple, fast cookie recipe.

  • Yield: About 48 cookies
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 5 minutes

While they are hardly as attractive as chocolate chip cookies baked in the oven, these waffle chocolate chip cookies cook faster, are extra gooey and can be made to order. They're also perfect for small-batch cooking.


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips
  • Cooking spray


Mix sugars, butter, vanilla extract and egg in a large mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Now typically these cookie recipes use baking soda, but the best part of waffle cookies is that they can be made to order. This recipe will keep for a few days in the fridge, which is why you need to use baking powder. Baking soda would flatten.

Fold the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, and then mix in the chocolate chips.

Prepare a hot waffle iron with cooking spray and then scoop the cookie dough mixture into the iron, and cook for about 3-5 minutes.
