These were so easy and delicious! I served them with ice cream and it tasted like a fresh ice cream waffle cone with it. You have to watch them carefully or they could burn. My belgian waffle maker got hot towards the end and started cooking them faster. Fun when you have company or kids. A great (large) cookie for a special dessert ending to dinner.
