PIZZELLES …a Holiday Staple


The faint smell of Anise PIZZELLES is throughout the house for a couple of days. If you like a hint of  licorice, this is the cookie for you.  On the internet, you can find all sorts of flavors to make your PIZZELLES (vanilla, rum, Amaretto, almond, chocolate).  They can also be rolled around a wooden spoon handle right off the Pizzelle iron.  Let them cool and fill with any type of cream filling; there are many great combinations.  The French make a brown sugar type that tastes like a waffle cone (Galette).  Right now, I’d like to share the Anise flavored.  This batch makes about 6 dozen.  Take your time, grab a glass of wine and make some PIZZELLES!  Enjoy.

The original recipe card is not too difficult to follow.  Anise Extract can be found in the baking aisle of the grocer.  I use the smallest scoop available for my dough.  It is quite moist.  Watch how long you leave on the iron, they burn easily!  A maximum time of 1 minute should be watched.  CAN’T HAVE EGGS?  EGGBEATERS WORKS JUST FINE!
