  • Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.

  • Beat cream cheese and softened butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy. Gradually mix 2 cups confectioners' sugar into cream cheese mixture, alternating with milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, until glaze is smooth.

  • Spoon 1/4 to 1/2 cup waffle batter into preheated waffle iron. Cook according to manufacturer's directions. Repeat with remaining batter.

  • Lightly dust each waffle with remaining confectioners' sugar, drizzle with glaze, and top each with whipped cream and strawberries.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute Splenda(R) for the sugar in the waffle batter.

Not my favorite. I followed the recipe exactly. The waffles turned out OK. The recipe for the glaze was WAY too much. I feel like I could have made 1/2 the amount and it still would have been more than plenty. I could have saved myself some money on that one. Probably won't make this recipe again. Read More

Didn't have any cream cheese to make the glaze, but was looking for a good buttermilk waffle recipe. First time, made the recipe as listed (minus the red food color). A bit too much salt and the vinegar was weird. It may be perfect with the glaze? Second batch, 1/2 tsp salt and no vinegar. Perfect! Super crispy and delicious! The batter is perfect for the waffle maker. Read More
