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!

How to Make Pizelle

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
