This is a recipe that I got from my grandmother who in turn got it from her mother. GG Blanche was part of a card- playing group and whenever she hosted would make these waffles for the group she played with. Doubles and freezes wonderfully.

These were spectacular! The cinnamon gave a different taste to the plain ole waffle. I also think that beating the egg whites, made a huge difference, on their texture. Thanks for the great recipe!
