My lifelong friend Madeline gave me this recipe. Her family is Italien and her two aunts would make these every Christmas & Easter with an iron that you held on the stove. Making 1 at a time. They are the best I've tasted.

How to Make Pizzelles


  1. Beat egg. melt butter but don't add to eggs yet. Let it cool first. Add sugar gradually, beat till smooth. Add cooled butter Anise flavoring.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder. Add egg mixture, dough will be sticky. Pizzelle iron must be hot enough or it will definitely stick. I use 1 rounded tbsp. of mixture in center of each design on iron. I usually take them off after about1 minute. Be careful and watch them because they will brown fast.
    Yield: 6 or 7 dozen
