Sometimes a photo just captures your attention like nothing else could. Case in point: Cookie dough waffles piled on top of one another. Too good to be true? Luckily for us, the answer is no. The popular site, Dine and Dish, profiled the recipe and the cookbook it comes from, The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook. Sure, this is certainly a departure from talk of antioxidants, superfoods, protein and fiber. Health-wise, you could certainly do better for breakfast. But I remember as a kid sitting around and thinking of all of the genius things you could add to pancakes and waffles: M&Ms, Junior Mints, chocolate covered cherries. My much-younger self is smiling right now with this Belgium waffle recipe featuring bits of actual cookie dough. And chocolate whipped cream? Yes, please.
The recipe makes just enough cookie dough to fold into the waffle batter, and relies on a pretty standard waffle recipe. This is a great one to do on an indulgent weekend morning with wee ones. Or with your partner. Or best friend. Or cat.
