Instructions

Sugar cookie batter in clear bowl

Step 4: Using a silicone or wooden spatula, transfer the cookie waffle to a cooling rack and let cool for 2-3 minutes to allow wafffle to get crispy on the outside.

Handy tip: Use Potholders

If you’re having a hard time removing the waffle from the waffle maker because it’s too soft, use potholders to pick up the waffle iron and “pour” the cookie on the cooling rack. It will get nice and crispy as it cools.

Variations


  • GLUTEN FREE – Need these to be gluten free? Easy! Choose the gluten free sugar cookie mix of your choice.
  • DAIRY FREE– Need these to be dairy free? Easy! Use the dairy free sugar cookie mix of your choice.
  • ADD AN EXTRA EGG – If your first waffle is too sticky and won’t hold together, add an extra egg to your sugar cookie batter. This will help it hold together.

Why Refrigerated Cookie Dough Just Doesn’t Work

  • Refrigerated cookie dough just doesn’t work in the Dash Mini Waffle Maker – as much as I want it to! It is a sticky, ooey, gooey mess that will leave you frustrated and wishing you hadn’t put cookie dough in the waffle iron.
  • Stick to mixes that you can whip up yourself – bonus if it’s a “just add water” mix. The thicker the better – and don’t forget our tip about adding an extra egg.
