This is my Grandmothers recipe and a family favorite and must have at Christmas and Easter. A hit at holiday pot lucks and on cookie trays! It makes a very thin, crisp delicate pizzella.

Cook:
2 Hr
Method:
Griddle

Ingredients

1 dozen large eggs ( room temp.)
3 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 1/4 cups vegetable oil
3 tbls anise seed
4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder

Step-By-Step

1Beat eggs and sugar until sugar is dissolved and batter is creamy

2Beat in oil and anise seed

3Add flour and baking powder mix until combined and batter is smooth

4Heat pizzelle iron. Drop batter onto hot iron. I use a 2 teaspoon scoop, irons may vary in size. Cook until done, time may vary by iron. My iron is old and does not have a timer. It does not take long 30-60 seconds. Add a bit of flour if pizzelles are too thin, but not too much.
