A Little Late In Posting, But Oh Well

>> Thursday, January 03, 2008

This really is a holiday recipe, but I suppose it could be made any time of the year. Every year, we bring out our pizzelle maker and go through a couple of batches. This year, I decided not only to make vanilla, I would also make chocolate.

For those of you who don't know me well enough, my absolute hated ingredient is anise. I can't even stand the smell, let alone the taste. Traditional pizzelles are made with anise extract, but I won't go near the stuff, so I use vanilla instead. You can experiment with different extracts, but our family sticks with vanilla and chocolate.

Even the cat wanted some. He even ate a piece.


1/2 cup butter
3 eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder (only for chocolate pizzelles)
1/2 tsp. baking powder

1. Melt butter. Allow to cool to room temperature.

2. In a large mixing bowl mix eggs and vanilla. In a separate mixing bowl sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, and cocoa (optional) together. Add melted butter to the egg mixture; beat together. Add flour mixture and mix well.

3. Warm up pizzelle iron. Cook according to manufacturer's instructions. Mine take 30 seconds for each batch.
