The 'Spoon University' blog recently put together a recipe for a batch of savory cookies that are inspired by a classic Southern dish. While chicken and waffles is a popular dish, this meal is not generally found in cookie form. This recipe puts a clever twist on the waffle entree by turning it into a savory dessert.

The recipe involves making a simple maple sugar cookie batter and then infusing it with crispy pieces of fried chicken skin. The cookies are then baked on a waffle iron to give them distinct grill marks. Finally, the waffle cookies are topped with a sweet glaze, which provides a unique combination of contrasting flavors. While the recipe may sound bizarre, chicken and waffles itself is a dish that already involves pairing unusual ingredients.

The result is a tasty twist on a classic Southern dish.
