This is a childhood fave of mine.  I have many memories of these cookies…in particular, my mom would always make these for my elementary school classroom treat.  LOVE THEM!  We call them waffle cookies, but I would also call them turtle cookies (because their shape is similar to a turtle).


Supplies needed:

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup butter

1 cup evaporated milk

4 eggs

3 squares chocolate, melted

2 tsp. vanilla

3 cups flour


Using a mixer, cream together white sugar, brown sugar, and butter.  Add evaporated milk, beaten eggs, melted chocolate, vanilla, and flour. 

And yes...the batter tastes as good as it looks!

Drop by teaspoon on hot waffle iron, close and bake for a couple of minutes.  Frost while hot with powdered sugar frosting (butter, powdered sugar, and cocoa). 

My mom's retro waffle iron works the BEST for these cookies!
Ready for frosting

Crafty G-Ma brought these cookies to the cabin (my request) and they lasted two days!  They were a major hit…great for night eating!  Yes--Steve and I are fans of fourth meal (notice--very few quantum leap posts...major leap fail happening!)
