When I was a little girl, growing up in Kansas City, Mo., my mother made these waffles for the family, especially if we were expecting company. For a little girl, the best part of this was the waffle iron Mother used. It was called a "Mazie Lee". All the waffles came out with a sun, moon and stars on them. The iron was used on the stovetop, so you cooked one side at a time. The iron is in my possession, and I enjoy making this treat for my family.
