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.

Ingredients For pizzelles

  • 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.
