Red, White & Blue Cookie Waffle Dessert

Blue raspberry cookie mix transformed into yummy cake-like waffles

Red, white and blue Cookie Waffles Dessert Idea

Today I’m showing how I started with a cookie mix, but then turned them into yummy waffles.

But the 1st question I have — is it a cookie waffle or a waffle cookie?

I went back and forth trying to decide which one I was making. = )

Either way, these blue raspberry cookie waffles turned out delicious! It was a definite crowd pleaser with the kids when I was testing out this recipe idea.

Blue Rasberry Waffle Cookies recipe idea

I started with Blue Raspberry Cookie Mix, which was intriguing enough to try, but I wanted to put a little spin on it and try it out on the waffle iron.

But first, I needed to get the batter to the right consistency.

Following the ingredients needed on the back of the box, I added an extra egg, 1/2 cup water, and 1/2 cup of pancake mix (I used the kind where you only need to add water) to the batter.

This made the batter less dough-like and more waffle batter-like. It thinned it out the a nice consistency, but then the added egg and pancake batter helped hold it together in the waffle iron.

Then I just cooked them as I normally would make waffles.

What came out of the waffle iron was a yummy, crispy, yet moist cake-like cookie waffle.

Whew, that’s a mouthful of words, but it was all of those things. YUM!

In my sister’s opinion, it’s like eating a muffin top – crispy on the outside, but moist and cake-like on the inside.

I topped them with whipped cream and add fresh raspberries to complete my red, white and blue dessert idea.

    Looks intriguing! The recipe says “1/2 of pancake mix”. That’s 1/2 cup? Thanks!
