Ingredients

Honey-Cinnamon Butter

1/2
cup unsalted or salted butter, softened
3
tablespoons honey
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon

Waffles

3/4
cup chopped pecans
1
roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
2
eggs
1
teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2
cup half-and-half
  • 1 In small bowl, beat butter, honey and cinnamon with electric mixer on medium-high speed 1 to 2 minutes or until light and creamy; set aside.
  • 2 In 10-inch skillet, cook pecans over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until pecans begin to brown, then stirring constantly until light brown. Remove from skillet to plate to cool.
  • 3 Heat oven to 200°F. Heat waffle maker. (Waffle makers without a nonstick coating may need to be brushed with vegetable oil or sprayed with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray.)
  • 4 In large bowl, break up cookie dough; add eggs and vanilla. Beat on medium speed about 2 minutes or until smooth. Slowly add half-and-half, beating until batter is smooth and thin. Stir in 1/2 cup of the pecans.
  • 5 Pour 1/3 cup batter onto each waffle section. (Check manufacturer’s directions for recommended amount of batter.) Close lid of waffle maker. Cook about 3 minutes or until waffles are golden brown. Carefully remove waffles to heatproof plate; keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • 6 To serve, top each waffle with about 1 tablespoon honey-cinnamon butter and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the remaining pecans.
