On the first day of Christmas

my true love gave to me: home made crisp and oh so yummie waffles! What can be better than make your own crisp waffles to give as a Christmas present to your inlaws? All you need is a waffle maker and a lot of patience. Because this recipe will keep you busy for a while. Have a glass of cold Chardonnay ready and get going. Have fun!

  • 300 grams white sugar
  • 300 grams brown sugar
  • 500 grams butter
  • 1 kilo flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 sachets of vanilla sugar
  • a dash of salt
  • a dash of baking powder
How easy can it be? Just mix up all of the ingredients in the order as mentioned (put in eggs one at a time). Roll walnut size balls out of the dough and keep them in the refrigerator until you are all set to start baking. Put your favorite CD on, keep the bottle of wine nearby (you can't leave the waffle maker unattended so be prepared), go to the bathroom now you still can, preheat the waffle iron and get going!

These waffles are to be stored in a tin, in order to keep them crisp. You can also pack them in translucent wrapping paper as a gift to your loved ones!
