PizzellesBaking Pizzelles always brings me back to my Italian grandmother Asunta. She used to make these by the dozens. Along with a few other Italian Cookies that may or may not make an appearance through the holidays. Quite frankly, we are all just a little sick of the same cookies that we have made year after year. And, unfortunately they have never been embraced by the newer generations in the family. I cannot say that anybody is tired of these cookies. They are light and crisp and powdered sugar messy and you need a Pizzelle iron to make them.


3/4 c. Melted butter
3/4 c. Sugar
3 eggs beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. anise flavoring
1 scant tsp baking powder
1/2 c. Flour

Batter will be loose
Drop into a heated buttered pizzelle maker, remove when golden.

    • Hi Donna,
      I have never tried to use a waffle iron to make pizelles, I think pizelles require a thinner grid, however I think I would try it because I can’t imagine it would be that much different. Pizelle makers seem to have a little bit more intricate pattern. No big deal. Good luck and if you use a waffle iron I would love to know how it worked. Thank you for the comment. Oh and to answer your question, you can get them online for between $30 and $70 on amazon.com. I like nextag.com because they show you all the stores they are available in, like Bed, Bath, and Beyond, Walmart, etc.
