It is that time of the year ....again.
Friends always want me to make pizzels for them, for the holidays. Iusually make a double recipe..makes about 4-1/2 dozen.
They always go over great at party's and holiday gatherings.
These are extra thin, extra crisp, & extra special!!
I am on my second electric pizzel maker! The first one died on me..I wonder why!!.....LOL
This is an Italian traditional cookie, and I always use anise flavoring. Then a little dusting with powdered sugar.
