* Pizzelles

In another post I mentioned that I grew up eating Snow ball cookies that my grandma use to make, well.. another cookie that she made (that was my ALL TIME favorite) were Pizzelles! I love these little flat wafer cookies!! Sweet, crispy and just delicious!  I think I can say that those cookies were my favorite, out of all cookies.... ever!!  This year I made pizzelles to add to my cookie tray!! They turned out just as good as gram would have made them!!

3 Eggs
1 C. sugar
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 lb butter (unsalted, melted and then cooled)
2 C. flour
2 Tsp baking powder

Special Equipment:
Pizzelle Iron


Depending on how quickly your pizzelle iron heats up, you may have to start heating it before you make your dough, mine takes about 2 minutes, so I don't turn it on and preheat it until after my dough in made.

In a medium bowl beat your eggs and sugar. Add the extract and melted butter and mix. On low speed gradually add the flour and baking powder to make a sticky dough.

Once your pizzelle iron is hot, drop teaspoon sized portions onto the center of each pattern outline. Close the lid and allow to cook for 30-45 seconds, or until nicely browned.

Using a fork, carefully remove the hot cookie from the iron and place on a cooling rack. Lay them on a single layer on the cooling rack, once the cookies are cooled you can stack them.. and dust them with powdered sugar!!!


Happy Eating!!
