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?
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.
