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

"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"

"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."
