Jackie's Waffles

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sweetiebarbara

My sister gave me a cookbook back in the 60's that had this marvelous waffle recipe in it by Jackie Kennedy. Truly it is fit for our White House. I copied the recipe over many times, and like to use it for company or leisurely weekend mornings. One of the marvelous things about this recipe, is that the waffles freeze well. I bought a new Waffle iron, and the waffles fit into a (wide opening) toaster. I plan to make these for Christmas morning, and have it become a tradition.

If you're looking for a waffle recipe that produces a nice, light, airy waffle - then this is your recipe. I used 2 tbsp. of sugar but that was the only modification I made on the original recipe. The next time I will double it because my family commented throughout breakfast about how delicious they were. I used a belgian waffle maker for mine.
