Ok, this is it. I have used up all my leftover sugar cookie mix. Phew! I still can’t believe how much stuff I filled up my pantry with over the holiday season. The pile is finally getting smaller. I thought these waffle sticks would be cute for the kids. I think I only used my Bella Waffle Stick Maker once so far. I bought it at Target for $10 or something on clearance. One of those impulse purchases that always happen to me at Target. The sprinkles are from the Target $1 bins. I might have to call up Target and ask if I can be their new spokesperson because I buy so many things there.
For this recipe I just slightly adapted my Mini Sugar Cookie Donut recipe. I added a little sugar and some corn starch to make the waffles more crispy on the outside.
I used my Bella Waffle Stick Maker. I know Babycakes make one also or you can use a regular waffle maker. I just don’t know how many waffles it would make.
My machine makes 6 waffle sticks at a time. I use my Tovolo Pancake Pen to fill each cavity with batter like I do for my donut maker and cake pop maker.
It just so much easier and more accurate than a measuring cup. You can also use a plastic bag with the tip cut off if you like.
These baked up in about 3-4 minutes. It just depends on whether it is the first couple of batches or the last batch. When warm, straight out of the machine, the outside of the waffles did come out crispy with a soft center, like a Belgian waffle. You can eat them with some maple syrup or slather them with jam. You can probably freeze some and reheat in a toaster oven later.
I wanted to have a little fun with them, so I let them cool completely and placed them in an airtight container until I was ready to glaze them. A little glaze and sprinkles always makes dessert more fun. The waffles did lose their crispiness at this stage, but didn’t lose their flavor. They came out tasting similar to the Mini Sugar Cookie Donuts. And that’s not a bad thing since those donuts were oh so yummy.
