Pizzelle Cookies

I love cookies! The easier the better. So, when I got back from my vacation, I wanted some thing quick and easy to get back into the swing of things in the kitchen. 
I inherited an old Pizzelle maker from my Grandmother a few years ago. I had never even heard of these cookies, but I figured what the heck, I’d take the press.
The first time I made the cookies, they came out kinda funny. The batter was too thin and I did not care for the anise that the traditional Italian cookies call for. 
When I found a recipe in my Betty Crocker Cookie Book, the recipe worked much better!
From Betty Crocker:
2 cups Flour
1 cup Sugar
3/4 cup melted butter, allow time to cool
1 Tbls vanilla extract
4 eggs
powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat your Pizzelle iron as directed.
Combine all ingredients until batter is smooth
Drop a heaping tablespoon of batter onto the rear half iron and close.
Cook for about 30 seconds and then carefully remove and cool on a wire rack.
Once cooled, dust the cookies with some powered sugar.
Unfortunately, you can only make two cookies at a time. It’s easy, but a bit time involved.
I made all of these in about an hour and a half.
Sometimes, the cookie batter will ooze out the side, and sometimes you’ll get a thinner, “lacey” design.
If you end up with not so desirable cookies, just break them up over some ice cream.
They make a great ice cream cone substitution.

These are yummy cookies that make a simple dessert with coffee or tea.
Or… enjoy them for breakfast 🙂

Join me on Wednesday over at Blissful Bucket List to see what else I made with these cookies!

I've always wanted to make these cooks, but I had reservation about buy the iron just for one kind of cookie. I'm sure I'll justify the purchase to myself soon. Haha.

For some reason I only make pizzelles at Christmas time. They would be scrumptious in ice cream. Your images are yummy! Thanks for bringing this sweet treat to ON THE MENU MONDAY!

I was thinking maybe I could use a huge cookie sheet & press them with my wired grid cooling racks to get the shape desired. I'll give it a shot anyway.

I never made pizzelles but they sure do look good. I'll have to give them a try. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
