Welcome to Baker’s Corner, Panther Press‘ new spot, giving you recipes and ideas for those potluck dinners or just a night when you feel like baking. I will give you step-by-step instructions to make the most delicious and artistic treat for the season.

Is it a waffle? Is it French toast? Is it a cookie? Yes!… It’s all combined into a special treat for the wintertime blues. This recipe has been passed down through the family and baked every year with a dash of love mixed into each batch.

1 2/3 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup melted butter
1 Tablespoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon salt
2 eggs
powered sugar

  1. Grease waffle iron and turn to medium high
  2. Separate egg whites and yolks
  3. Beat egg yolks and set aside egg whites
  4. Using a hand mixer, beat flour, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, salt and beaten egg yolks until a crumble texture
  5. Fold in egg whites separately
  6. Drop balls about 1 inch wide onto waffle iron (I use two small spoons for size)
  7. Bake for about 2 minutes or until slight color in middle
  8. Take out and set on wire rack (I use two forks to take out)
  9. Sprinkle powdered sugar over warm cookies (put parchment paper underneath for easier clean up)
  10. Cool and enjoy!
    Makes about two dozen cookies.
