That pre – Diwali deep cleaning found my abandoned waffle iron sitting in a dusty corner of the store-room. How quickly I had forgotten the promises of warm fresh waffles for breakfast, savory ones for dinner, even some fancy canapes made to the family when purchasing the aforementioned appliance…sigh! Oh well, there is no time like now to make amends and so here we are with the cutest Waffle Cookies… made Gluten-free!
A basic cookie dough, liberally flavoured with orange zest and a hot waffle iron is really all you need for these beauties. The dough takes all of 5 minutes to make! And you can certainly add in chocolate chips or chopped nuts if you like. I ( of course!) decided to give refined flour a miss and used buckwheat flour instead. As always it didn’t let me down. Another winner ladies and gentlemen!!
Lovely orange-scented buttery, lightly sweetened cookies is what we got. They tasted fabulous as is, but since we are in the Christmas-y festive mood, they got a half dunk in dark chocolate and then a sprinkling of pistachio, desiccated coconut and chopped ruby-red cranberries by Santa’s little helpers!
So get that waffle iron out, get your kids or friends in the kitchen and make these beautiful novelty Waffle Cookies! You ‘d be surprised how fast they get baked and you’ll have warm cookies and happy faces in no time at all.
