1/3 cup whipped cream cheese

1/4 cup small-curd cottage cheese

2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar, plus more for topping

4 frozen waffles (untoasted)

1 to 2 tablespoons jam (any flavor)

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus more if needed

Ground cinnamon, for topping


  1. Mix the cream cheese, cottage cheese and confectioners' sugar in a medium bowl. Spread 2 waffles with the jam, then top with the cream cheese mixture; cover with the remaining 2 waffles. 
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sandwiches and cook until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes per side, adding more butter to the pan if needed. (Adjust the heat if the waffles are browning too quickly.) 
  3. Let the sandwiches rest 1 minute before serving. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and cinnamon.
