I would like a recipe for making pizzelles if anyone has one.
By Trudy from Springfield, IL
This is the recipe my mother used:
1 lb. butter (2 cups) not margarine
2 cups + 2 Tab sugar
6 eggs, beaten
2 Tab OIL of anise, NOT anise flavoring
1/4 cup baking powder
7-8 cups flour
pinch of salt
Melt butter and remove from heat. Add sugar, eggs, oil of anise and mix thoroughly. Add baking powder, salt and 2 cups of flour. Stir to combine thoroughly.
Continue to add flour, 1-2 cups at a time until dough is very stiff. Cover and refrigerate one hour.
Pinch off small pieces the size of a walnut or a little larger. Roll slightly into a ball and place on hot pizzelle iron and cook, 1-2 minutes on each side until done. Yields: Approx 108 cookies (9 dozen)
Note: This isn't a batter like some recipes, it's a really stiff dough. You can reduce the anise just slightly if it's too strong, but these have a wonderful flavor with this amount of anise.
