My son turned nine years old this week, and we will be celebrating with a small group of his friends this weekend.
I purchased a bunch of snacks (more than enough, according to my son), yet I couldn’t resist adding another fun treat to the mix.
My family loves chocolate chip cookies, and I often make the classic favorite we all know well. This time, however, I wanted to have some fun, so I swapped out half of the chocolate chips for the white chocolate version and added some waffle cone pieces for a crunchy, sweet surprise.
Note, I used the Keebler-brand waffle cones, as that’s what I had on hand. I would be curious how this would work with other brands, or even other types of cones.
Let me know if you try this recipe and share what you think in the comments.
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/2 Stick Butter Softened
1/4 Cup White Sugar
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup White Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Waffle Cone Pieces (About Two Waffle Cones Crumbled)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
Cream together butter and sugar, then add the egg and vanilla.
Add the dry ingredients mixture to the wet mixture and mix until well combined.
Stir in the dark and white chips and waffle cone pieces.
Use your hands to make balls of dough about 1 inch in diameter and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Cook at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 9 minutes.
Remove from oven and let the cookies finish cooling on a wire rack.
Makes about 20 cookies.
I find the waffle cones don’t overpower the flavor of the cookie, and make a fun substitute for potato chips or pretzel pieces found in other recipes.
