Run, run as fast as you can; you can’t catch me, I’m… too busy eating gingerbread waffles.
Okay. That made no sense. At all. I’m drunk on delicious waffles. I have no sense left. I’ve lost it all trying to wrap my head around how anything so easy to make can also be so delicious.
Now I’m not making sense and being dramatic.
Whatevs. Try these gingerbread waffles (can be shared with kids 10+ mos*) and you’ll understand why. They are fantastico and can—you guessed it—be made ahead of time. Either keep the batter in the fridge overnight and make ’em first thing in the a.m. Or complete the recipe days ahead and freeze the waffles. Warm in the toaster or oven for best results the day you want to serve them. Like, I don’t know, CHRISTMAS morning!
*Note: There is nothing in these that can’t be shared with kids younger than 10 months, but they are best enjoyed as a finger food by children who can chew well (these will not dissolve). Also, if serving to young children, consider skipping the maple syrup. These are a little sweet and super tasty as is. Little ones don’t need the extra sugar to enjoy!
