Not happy with my pizzelles

MariBorzy | Jul 18, 2011 09:05 AM

I was invited to a friend's home for dinner on Sunday and wanted to bring a tray of cookies as a hostess gift. She ended up with a bottle of wine.

I received a teflon iron as a Christmas gift. This is only the second time I have made these cookies. They come out soft both times. I am trying to achieve that "just can't eat one" crispy cookie my grandmother made.

I am using the standard pizzelle recipe. Any suggestions? Is it the iron?

3 eggs

1 1/2 c. flour

1/2 tsp. anise seed or extract

1/2 c. UNSALTED butter melted and cooled

2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 c. sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract


* Beat eggs and sugar.

* Add cooled melted butter and vanilla and anise.

* Sift flour and baking powder and add to egg mixture.

* Drop the stiff batter by spoon.
