Wafeltjes are Belgian waffle cookies that you will absolutely love. These buttery treats are a must make and will take your taste buds on a European vacation!
Servings: 24 cookies
- 4 cups of flour
- 1 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
Gently melt the butter (make sure it doesn’t brown).
In the bowl of your mixer put in the flour and sugar. Add the baking powder, salt and the vanilla extract.
Mix on medium low speed and slowly add the eggs one at a time. Let mix for one minute then slowly pour in melted butter.
Cover bowl and put in fridge for at least one hour.
After letting the dough sit in fridge heat up waffle iron.
Make small balls of dough and drop onto waffle iron (we did 4 at a time because we wanted them to be small but you could also do two bigger ones).
Let bake until golden brown and remove from iron with a wooden skewer transferring onto a cooling rack. Store in a covered container.
