Cheesy Waffle Bites

Honey Bee Sweets made these. And so did Precious Moments. Thanks to their reviews, I made mine and it turned out very cheesy and yummy! I doubled the recipes and used grated red cheddar cheese. When the dough was heating in the waffle maker, the cheddar cheese aroma filled the air.

Recipe for Cheesy Waffle Bites, modified from Honey Bee Sweets.
(makes about 50 bite size)

Ingredients:
400g Plain flour, sifted
150g Icing sugar
200g Unsalted cold butter, cubed
150g Red Cheddar cheese, grated
40g milk powder
2 Whole eggs, beaten (approx. 100g) [I added extra egg yolk to add up to 100g]

Method:

1. In a large mixing bowl, add in the flour, icing sugar, milk powder and cheese in.
2. Stir in to mix well.
3. Then add in the cold cubed butter and rub it in with your fingers.
4. When the mixture resembles bread crumbs, add in the beaten egg.
5. Stir well to form a soft pitiable dough.
6. At this point you can either chill or work with it right away.(I chilled mine as it was too soft. Could be due to the extra egg yolk I added.)
7. Divide the dough into small ball portions of your preference.
8. Heat up your waffle maker.
9. Then place the dough into each "joint" of the waffle maker.
10. Cook for about 3-4 minutes (according to your waffle maker heating element).

11. Remove and let them cool on a wire rack. Repeat till all the dough portions are cooked.
12. When the waffles are removed from the dough, it'll still be quite soft. It hardens upon total cooling.

Thank you! I don't have a food scale would you be able to roughly translate the measurements into cups? If not, no worries.

Sorry, you'll have to translate it yourself. I usually use grams for measurements. http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/cookingconversions.asp?Action=find
