Editor’s Note: We here at ES are big fans of the movement to cook all foods inside a waffle iron, so we’re happy to have Matt from WaffleMakers.net join us this week to talk about an important new development: waffle cookies.
What is better than cookies? Really, think about it…The answer, of course, is giant cookies.
So why else would you want to make cookies in a waffle maker? First of all, it is incredibly quick (anywhere from 2 to 4 minutes). Secondly, while the taste of the cookies isn’t remarkably different, the texture is completely transformed. Instead of being crunchy the whole way through, waffle cookies have a crispy shell with a soft, doughy inner. Real melt-in-your-mouth stuff. Lastly, unlike regular cookies, waffle cookies have the pockets and gullies that a waffle would have, which is perfect for spooning in generous amounts of whipped cream or any other topping you might fancy.
Any more questions?

Foodwise, Seattle does a lot of things right. Seafood, apples, cherries, Pike Place Market, etc… Good job, go Northwest, most of the time I am very proud of the culture here.
BUT! Sometimes I am just embarrassed for this city. Such an incident occurred today when I was out grabbing some groceries at the market near my office. The special of the day:
You guys. YOU GUYSSSSS. I know Seattle isn’t known for its amazing, authentic soul food, but COME ON. Chicken ‘n’ waffles, but the waffles are legit EGGOS wrapped in saran wrap?! A whole box of Eggos costs less than $6.99. This is total pandering to the “southern food trend,” and I don’t like it one bit.
