Pizelle

This is a "grandma" recipe from my 4 ft. tall grandmother. She wanted each of us to learn a few of her recipes and I was lucky enough to get the pizelle recipe. Of course I had to share it with all my cousins, but I always tell them mine are the best! These are wonderful with coffee after dinner, but I usually also sneak a pizelle or two when I walk past the container!!! They get eaten up pretty quickly!

Cook:
1 Hr
Method:
Griddle

Ingredients

1-1/2 c
unsalted butter
2 c
sugar
9
eggs
6 c
flour
3 tsp
baking powder
3 tsp
vanilla
1/4 tsp
salt (less than 1/4 tsp)
3 tsp
anise oil (note-i use a lot more

Step-By-Step

1First you need a pizelle iron-an electric pizelle iron with 4 sections for pizelle is the best & works fastest. Preheat and rub with a bit of butter, both top and bottom (check directions from nmanufacturer)
2Meanwhile beat butter until smooth
Gradually add the sugar and beat well
3Add to this the eggs, vanilla and anise oil. At this point it might look "curdled" but it's okay-don't worry
4Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix thoroughly. Dough will be sticky soft, which is what you want
5To use iron (once heated and lightly buttered) drop 1 heaping tsp in the center of each of the pattern sections. Close lid, grip tightly and cook 35-50 seconds or until lightly brown. NOTE the first pizelle are your "test" pizelle-those are the ones my little Yorkie loves! If you don't have a dog, just toss them
6Cool on wire rack and then enjoy
