Yes, we’ve all had breakfast, and I’m sure we’ve all had dessert at some point during quarantine. Cindy has made it possible for us to do both at the same time, introducing her “Waffled Chocolate Chip Cookies”! There are no rules in quarantine and there is a rumor that calories don’t count either; making this tasty treat ideal for any hour of the day. These crispy-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside cookies are a sneaky way to eat dessert for breakfast.
Here’s what you need to gather and the directions on how to make this tasty treat:
Waffled Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon fine salt
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
Nonstick cooking spray
Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Beat the sugars and butter with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat the vanilla and egg until incorporated. Adjust the speed to medium-low and add the flour in 2 batches, mixing until incorporated. Mix in the chocolate chips. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes if time allows.
Preheat a waffle iron to medium-low. Generously spray the top and bottom of the waffle iron with cooking spray. Scoop tablespoons of the dough, roll into balls and flatten slightly. Working in batches, place 1 dough round onto each section of the waffle iron, close gently and cook until slightly crisp, 3 to 6 minutes.
Serve the cookies warm or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day.
