Belgian Iron Cookies

This recipe for Belgian Iron Cookies is a traditional treat that has been passed down through generations. These cookies are made with a simple sugar cookie dough and then rolled in cinnamon sugar. They are perfect for any holiday or special occasion.


  • 5 pounds all-purpose flour
  • 4 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 cups butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons whiskey


1.In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar.

2. Add the eggs, vanilla extract, salt, and whiskey (if desired) to the mixture and blend until combined.

3. Gradually add in the all-purpose flour by hand until fully incorporated into the dough. The dough will be thick and sticky.

4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight so that the flavors can meld together.

5 .When you are ready to bake the cookies, lightly grease an iron cookie mold with butter or cooking spray and heat it over a gas burner set to medium heat.

6 .Roll about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough into a small “cigar” shape and place it inside the mold (the amount of dough you use will vary depending on the size of your mold). Close the iron mold tightly and cook for 1-1 1/2 minutes, or until golden brown in color.

7 .Remove from heat and let cool slightly before removing from mold; repeat with remaining dough
