Pizzelle Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe was adapted from one used by my Italian-born mother and grandmother. They used old irons on a gas stove, but now we have the convenience of electric pizzelle irons. The cookies are so delectable and beautiful, they're worth it! —Elizabeth Schwartz, Trevorton, Pennsylvania

"Can you use less eggs???"

MY REVIEW

"Oh yes! This Pizzelli Recipe is the real deal. I personally love the anise oil flavoring. I am amazied at the size of the recipe. The yield is 84 Servings (7 Dozen Cookies). They will store well, sealed into an airtight container. I will love giving them as Christmas presents at Christmas, or any other Special Occassions for those who love Italian Pizzelli. Count on getting a new electric Pizzelli Iron, rather than counting on a stove top iron. Enjoy!"
