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.

Prep:

30 Min

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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Beat eggs and sugar until sugar is dissolved and batter is creamy
2
Beat in oil and anise seed
3
Add flour and baking powder mix until combined and batter is smooth
4
Heat 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.
