Warm gingerbread in the morning. Yum!! Nothing else needs to be said.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Your family and guests will go crazy for these gingerbread waffles. They're light, airy, and slightly crisp on the outside. You taste the ginger flavor, but it's less sweet than a piece of gingerbread. Great if you're having guests during the holidays. Use Virginia's suggestion and make them ahead of time. Come the morning, pop them in the toaster or oven, and breakfast is served in a flash.
