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.

  • ·
    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

How to Make Pizzelles


  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.
