These taste really good but make sure you really grease your waffle iron because it makes a huge mess if you don't. I've never had to grease mine so I didn't with the first batch and it took quite awhile to clean up the mess. I had to clean it before a second batch or all the little leftover pieces would have burned and ruined the cookies. I sprayed it between each batch.I first made them in a belgian waffle iron and they were more like pieces of waffle--soft. They still tasted good but we wanted them to be crisper so I got out my five heart waffle iron and we made thin hearts with it. Those got crispy as they cooled. 2-2 1/2 minutes worked with my waffle iron. Any longer and they were too dark and had a slight burned taste.
