Let’s talk about Black Friday deals. We were at Kohl’s when they opened on Thanksgiving evening at 6pm. I bought new towels, a tablecloth, dish towels, a Christmas serving platter and a waffle iron for $65 plus $15 Kohl’s Cash and a $10 mail in rebate for the waffle iron. In the end, our waffle iron will have cost me under $5 when it’s original price was $29.99.
Secondly, this recipe was a huge deal for me. While it may not seem like much, this is the first yeasted dough of any kind I’ve made since leaving pastry school almost two years ago. They came out fabulous! I threw together a quick strawberry sauce for my guy while waffles were cooking and that was it!
“Like a warm pretzel, these waffles have the consummate balance of sweetness, yeast and salinity. They’re the work of Mollie Katzen, one of America’s most successful cookbook writers of the 1980’s and ’90’s. If you make the waffles, you’ll understand her success,” Amanda Hesser, The New York Times Essential Cookbook
