These are absolutely the BEST cookies I have EVER tasted! Make a double batch and keep your waffle iron hot, as these disappear quickly!

I have to agree with AprilShowers, the finished cookie does taste more like a waffle, so to help out in flavor, I added a little pumpkin pie spice (that was an off-the-wall idea because I was out of cinnamon) and I added chocolate chips. The spice added a nice subtle flavor and the melted chocolate added extra sweetness which made it a little more like a dessert. I enjoyed making these and I really liked the chance to be creative. Thank you!
These were a fun little experiment. I have to say the dough tasted WAY better than the finished product. When cooked, they tasted more like a waffle than a cookie, and not nearly as chocolatey and sweet as before being cooked. I dropped in tablespoonfuls from my cookie scoop and baked on my waffle iron for 1 1/2 minutes. Then I used a rubber spatula to remove. If I didn't use the spatula they came off in pieces. The kids really liked them, and they cooked up quick. A fun little recipe to try!
