This recipe is a simple 'Italian Pizzelles' recipe. You can take this basic recipe and make variations for other yummy options.
|NOTE: Do not use more than 1/2 cup of butter and do not use oil as a substitute|
Beat eggs and sugar. Add cooled melted butter or margarine, and vanilla and anise (we have always used anise seeds and crush them into a powder before mixing in). Sift flour and baking powder and add to egg mixture.
There are quite a few options out there for pizzelle makers. These are very similar to a waffle maker. The batter will be thick enough to be dropped by a spoon, but I have heard that if you place batter in a large ziploc and snip a corner out and squeeze the batter out, it isn't as messy. I will have to give this a try!
This recipe will make about 30 pizzelles and the batter can be refrigerated to be used at a later time.
I have a pizzelle maker on my Christmas list this year! I sure hope Santa knows! Until then, I have borrowed my moms and hopefully will get to making lots of pizzelles soon!
