Spiced Waffle Cone Cookies
If you are a coffee/hot cocoa/tea drinker, this recipe would be great for you!
If you know someone who likes eggnog during the holidays, or biscotti with their beverages, this might be a nice alternative this year.
If you know how to make a waffle, you already know how to make waffle cones, because it is the same method. With little practice, you can start making yummy waffle cone treats quickly. This is even easy enough to have your kids participate!
You may not have considered buying a waffle cone maker, but I highly recommend you take the plunge and go buy one. A great model will run you $40, and you can use this recipe to make all of your Christmas gifts this year. Waffle cone makers are also handy for making waffle cones and bowls for family ice cream sundae nights at home and other special occasions.
This is the maker I got for my daughter's first birthday party where we served ice cream in waffle cone bowls. It is a nice model and can easily be purchased on Amazon.
For these cookies, I altered the recipe for a regular waffle cone. This version adds a nice spiced flavor to the cookies and makes them perfect for the holidays!
2 whole eggs
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tbs vegetable oil
1 cup cake flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground Cinnamon
1. Turn on waffle cone maker
2. Stir eggs and salt in a small bowl with fork until well blended.
3. Beat sugar in for a minute until incorporated fully.
4. Stir in oil.
5. Slowly add flour until all lumps are gone.
6. Add spices and vanilla
This recipe makes approximately 5-7 waffle cones and depending on the size of your cookie cutter, can make about 30 small cookies!
Spoon a small amount onto your cone maker and close. Once waffle cone is cooked, lay it out on a piece of parchment paper and quickly use the cookie cutters of your choice to cut out cookie shapes. If you allow the cone to cool, it will harden and not be able to be cut by the cookie cutter.
Once all of the shapes have cooled, lightly dust them with a little more Cinnamon and package how you wish!
Make sure you package in a sealed container to keep them hard and fresh ;)
