Sugar Cookie Waffles with a Berry Glaze. (Grain/Gluten/Dairy Free)

Sugar Cookie Waffles with a Berry Glaze. (Grain/Gluten/Dairy Free)

Sometimes a girl has to just let loose and break a few rules.

I spend the majority of my days in the kitchen developing recipes thinking sternly - NO grains, No eggs, No Starch, No Milk. No Sugar.. and on and on and on. I actually love doing this- as I thrive on a good challenge. BUT Sometimes, I just want to to say EFF it and throw wild ideas into my mixing bowl without constraint to see what outrageous thing I can create.

Today for the first time you are witnessing a moment of I, Brittany Angell letting loose. I love color, I love unique things, I love most of all being creative. I was an art major, a degree I didn't think would follow me into my food career. But here I am- attempting to paint with color and frosting. It makes me really happy inside.

So this recipe.. well. Think of it like this: A soft waffle and a sugar cookie just got smooshed together. The texture of these cookies is literally an exact hybrid of the two. And yes, that was exactly the texture I wanted. Odd? Maybe a little. But delicious.. OH YES! On one hand they taste like a pizelle cookie, on another like a sugar cookie, but then you will get this awesome hint of waffle. I mean golly.. just get ready to enjoy them.

Eat em hot or cold or however you want! Spoon ice cream on top, slather them with glaze, poor a bucket of sprinkles on. Do whatever you want. Just make sure to have fun.

Sugar Cookie Waffles with a Berry Glaze.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/3 cup + 2 Tbs Starch (Tapioca, Arrowroot, Potato or Cornstarch)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar (ie. organic cane, coconut palm. sucanat)
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch Salt
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg white.
  • 2 Tsp. Oil or Melted Butter
  • Glaze:
  • 1 /2 Cups Berries of choice (fresh or frozen)
  • 3 Tbs Water
  • 2 Tbs Sugar (any variety)
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract OR Lemon Juice
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Starch (Tapioca, Arrowroot, Potato or Cornstarch)
  • Powdered sugar to thicken. To make your own powdered sugar out of ANY variety of sugar simply place the granulated sugar of your choice into a powerful blender or coffee grinder. Blitz until powdery. Add a pinch of starch and you are good to go.

Instructions

  1. Make the glaze: In a sauce pan heat the glaze ingredients until thickened. Using a fork or mashing device crush the berries (OR place into a small food processor to create a puree.) Allow the glaze to cool and then add powdered sugar to thicken it as much as you want. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl combine all of the dough ingredients- stir and then kneed with your hands until it comes together into a ball of dough.
  3. lightly oil and heat up a waffle maker.
  4. Coat a sheet of parchment paper with starch and place the dough into the parchment. Dust with as much starch as you need to prevent sticking.
  5. Roll the dough out as you would for cut out sugar cookies- leaving it about 1/2 inch thick. Cut the dough into a square or circle the size of 1 waffle. Cut the remaining dough in the same fashion.
  6. Place the cut pieces of dough into the waffle iron and seal shut. Cook in the iron 1-3 minutes. (1 minute for a softer cookie, 3 minutes for a crisper firm cookie). Re-oil the waffle iron and continue until all the dough has been cooked.
  7. Drizzle the waffle cookies with prepared glaze and EAT.

Notes

I have a belgian waffle maker and therefore ended up with about 8 big cookies. Your yield will depend on the size of your waffle maker.

    Wow, I haven't seen the word "golly" in a long time. These cookie waffles sound like pure fun and deliciousness!

    Everything about this makes me happy! Nothing like a super fun recipe. And I love the idea of starting off a new recipe with the mindset of "Eff It!" Only good things can come of that :)
    Thanks for a super fun and beautiful recipe!

    Any chance there is a flour that could be substituted for the almond flour without ruining the essence of the recipe? I am DYING to give it a try when I get home from work tonight but I'd rather not literally die in the process. ;)

    These are officially my family's favorite cookie. :) Good job, Brittany! My husband isn't really a sweets fan, but these impressed him. I loved them too. :9

    Can I use garbanzo bean and GABA flour or other flour alternatives than almond? We already use a lot of almond in dairy alt and I like to try to divi up the uses so as not to create a new allergy in over use.

    Hey Brittany,
    I'm so happy I found your website recently! Your recipes look fabulous! I can't wait to start making them :)
    Question for you... can I use a different type of sweetener like maple syrup or honey in place of the sugar?

  9. Liana

    Can you make these in to sugar cookies?

    I have a little boy that has Autism and he is very limited with his diet When we started feeding therapy, he had only 2 things he would eat. Today he has a few more things.. and now that he will eat GFCF pancakes (I made your round pancakes with the sausage in my nordicware pan) and the kiddos ate them up! He even ate a bite of the flax pasta! I could go on and on about how picky he is.. if I choose a different brand he won't eat it ect. So the fact that he likes your recipes makes me want to cry tears of joy. It has been a long hard journey for us. I am trying to cure his candida and terrible leaky gut issues. With his limited diet and other issues it has been near impossible. His biomedical Dr. told me that when he eats milk and possibly wheat his body turns it into a drug that continues to fog his brain.. and it contributes to the candida and gut issues. You seem really to really understand these type of issues. I have yet to find a Dr. or anyone that has really been able to help. Let me know if you have any info that may help me with my little boy. I think that my daughter(4) and I also have many food intolerances. Didn't realize it until I was trying to help my Son!

    Oh by the way.. made these waffles, and my daughter gave me a high 5! Gonna try them on the picky one tomorrow, and see if he likes them as much as little sister does. :o) Husband was also very impressed with these waffles. Forgot to post that in my prior comment!
