Sometimes our children are ready to learn to cook long before they are ready to operate the oven. One of my kids, is the clumsiest child! If I allow said child anywhere near an open oven, I’m sure he/she (not saying who) will likely fall in. This is one of the many reasons why I am constantly creating alternative recipes for my younger children. All kids want to cook on their own, it’s our job as a parent to allow them that opportunity in a safe way.
Mommy’s Playbook Holiday Waffle Cookies are a wonderful starter recipe for kids because it doesn’t require the use of an electric mixer or the oven! That’s right! These no mixer cookies are going to become a right of passage in your home! Get ready for a crunchy sweet cookie that make a wonderful gift to grandparents and friends too!
Holiday Waffle Cookies Recipe
- Box Cake Mix (vanilla, chocolate, or seasonal flavor)

Heat waffle iron.
Pour cake mix into a large mixing bowl. Add eggs and melted butter. Stir by hand until eggs are incorporated completely and the mixture is moist.
Spray the top and bottom of your waffle iron. Drop a 1 inch round spoonful of cookie dough onto the center of your waffle iron. Close tightly. Allow cookie to cook for 3 minutes. Remove from waffle iron gently. Cool on a flat surface. (Repeat until you have used all of the dough)
