This recipe is for Belgian Lukken cookies made in a Lukken iron (Lukijyer). You can also use an Italian Pizzelle maker which may be easier to find.
- 6 eggs
- 1 lb butter
- 2 lbs flour
- 1 lb brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons vanilla
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 1⁄2 ounces whiskey (optional)
- Combine ingredients together in a large bowl to form a dough.
- Roll into balls and place into the Lukken iron (Lukijyer) or Pizzelle iron until golden brown.
I made this last year and am back for more this year. They are great. Just like my mother from Belguim used to make. I have her iron. Thanks again. Richard from Grosse Pte Park, Mich
Very Yummy. I used a pizzelle maker to make the cookies which meant it took a very long time. It helped when I refrigerated the dough to make it more moldable. I flattened the balls into discs.
When we make lukken we speed up the preparation by not rolling small balls of dough. Instead, we roll it into several tubes about 1 inch in diameter and refrigerate wrapped in wax paper. Then you can slice the dough into 1/4 inch circles and fry on the iron.
