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

  1. First 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)
  2. Meanwhile beat butter until smooth
    Gradually add the sugar and beat well
  3. Add to this the eggs, vanilla and anise oil. At this point it might look "curdled" but it's okay-don't worry
  4. Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix thoroughly. Dough will be sticky soft, which is what you want
  5. To 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
  6. Cool on wire rack and then enjoy
