This is one of my favorite recipes.

For me, perfect paired with a cup of hot tea.

I can snack on these all day long.

The recipe makes a ton, and they keep at least 2 weeks !

You just need a Pizzelle Baker !

6 eggs, whole
2 sticks butter- melted to room temp.
1 1/2 C. sugar
2 1/2 C. flour
4 tsp. baking powder

2 TBS. vanilla or 1 whole small bottle of Anise. ( I prefer the vanilla! I've never tried the Anise version, so maybe you should just add 2 TBS of Anise instead of the whole SMALL bottle.)

In large bowl, beat eggs slightly. Add melted butter. Add sugar & vanilla.
Beat well.
Slowly add flour & baking powder.
Make Pizzelles in your pizzelle
baker !
Sprinkle with powdered sugar on each one when done !
Sit back and enjoy !!

Yummm my mother made these all of December using my grandmother Dottis recipe and her Pizzelles maker from the 50's

Would also LOVE your support on the ELLE DECOR window I did for the Big Window Challenge this year with Apartment Therapy. Check it out at http://www.bigwindowchallenge com. As we all know, AT doesn’t make it easy, but you can vote TWICE a day, once online and the other by texting “1” to 89800.

Your support means the world to me!!

That sounds like the perfect thing to have with tea! Nice idea! I would attempt to make these, but I don't have the magical pizzelle maker.

I haven't had these in forever! My grandma used to make them every year for Christmas, but she hasn't done it in a few years. They bring back such memories! Next time I go back to visit, I'll have to dig out her pizzelle maker

I got a pizzelle maker for Christmas! I love these cookies. They bring back fond memories of my auntie. She made them every year.

I will be trying these! Thank you.

Now that you reminded me about them I am going to have to make them again. They are one of my favorite cookies. Have a great weekend. Denise

A WHOLE BOTTLE of anise??? Wow, I don't use that much. I really like vanilla ones too. I should dust off my Pizzelle iron.

I love pizzelles! They remind me of my Grandma. She always brought a huge platter of them when she came to visit. They would last for weeks.

The pizzelle baker would be a great gift for the person who has just about everything! :D These are so very pretty and delicate!

I love pizzelles. We make them every year at Christmas using my grandmother's old pizelle maker. Sometimes we put some into custard cups to shape them while they are still warm and then use them as dessert cups for ice cream, pudding, fruit, etc. Very yummy. But like you, my favorite is to have them with a cup of tea.

I added my pizzelle recipe to my cook book "Breaking Bread in L'Aquila" pub: 4/2010. I used to make them for my late husband all the time. I love them with ice cream too!
