1 stick (1/2 cup) butter

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup all-purpose flour

3 to 4 extra-large eggs

1 pint cinnamon roll ice cream

1 1/2 cups dulce de leche

1 cup heavy cream, whipped

1 cup feuilletine flakes or crushed ice cream cones


Special equipment:
a pastry bag; a mini-waffle iron
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the butter, salt and 1 cup water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Add the flour to the saucepan and stir for about 1 minute. (The mixture will immediately form a sticky ball.)
  2. Transfer the mixture to a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium-low until there is no longer steam. Lower the mixer speed to low, and add the eggs one at a time; the dough will be done once it clings to the paddle in "spokes" as it spins in the bowl. Transfer to a pastry bag and snip the tip, about 1/2-inch.
  3. Pre-heat a mini-waffle iron. Pipe the dough into each waffle cavity leaving about 1/2-inch empty around the edges. Cook to the waffle maker's specification or until the waffles are golden brown.
  4. Top each waffle with a scoop of ice cream, followed by a spoonful of dulce de leche, followed by a spoonful of whipped cream. Sprinkle the tops with feuilletine and serve.
