"4 star rating GREAT Recipe! I too have a real Pizzelle Maid Automatic Iron and the recipe that came with it has lots of eggs in it, too. I believe the real Italian recipes do have lots of eggs, the other recipes must come with the waffle iron that converts into pizzelle iron. They are delicious and I don't use anise in mine, (my family doesn't care licorce) I use rum instead. Wonderful cookies. My recipe differs a little bit from this one. bake on"
"Can you use less eggs???"
"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!"
"My Italian grandma had a recipe just like this. True Italian pizzelles require a lot of eggs."
"I have a recipe for Pizzelle which came with my Pizzelle Iron but mine only calls for 3 eggs this one calls for way to many eggs."
