Maybe you were expecting a star wars character....?
Last Friday on the way home from our LAdventure, CPB & I stopped at the Iron Press for a late dinner. We split their Burger with Stout BBQ Sauce topped with Bacon, an Onion Ring & Potato Chips. AND a side of their Waffle Fries with Garlic Aioli dipping sauce. The two put together (plus a wonderful beer from local brewery!) was more than enough to fill us both. Their burgers look small, a quarter of a Belgian waffle makes up the top and bottom bun, but they are rich and filling. As we were leaving the waitress asked if we wanted any desserts. Her recommendation, the Wookie, is cookie dough pressed in a waffle iron topped with a scoop of ice cream. We were completely full and didn't order this wonderful sweet treat. Having just borrowed a waffle iron from MMcK, it got me thinking....
I used my Basic Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe with roughly half the Chocolate Chips (too many chocolate chips will stick and the Wookie will come out a burnt crumble). Put a scoop in each quadrant of an oiled waffle maker. Cook the Wookie on medium-low for about 3-5 minutes or until golden. The easiest way to remove it was holding the waffle maker upside down (using oven mitts!) over a plate and gently poking one corner of the Wookie until it falls out. It's easiest to cut it while it's warm, as it cools the Wookie will harden and be more likely to crumble when cut. If the whole waffle isn't working try cooking a quadrant or two opposite quadrants at a time. Scoop ice cream on top & enjoy!
