    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This recipe is from Great Nana. She said it was originally from her best friend, Jean, and tastes exactly like the ones her mother-in-law always made, so it became her preferred version. You need a pizelle maker in order to make this recipe. I accidentally added almond extract and thought it tasted great, but Nana did not use it.

      I made these for a party I'm going to that has an Italian theme. I used the vanilla and almond extract and only 2 tsp of the anise extract as I'm not a huge fan of that flavor. With that reduction, I could equally taste all three flavors in the cookie. I borrowed an electric Krumkake waffle iron to make these (now I want one!). I have a few failures and almost gave up, but after the iron got hotter, they began to turn out fine. They are so light and crisp and so pretty. I will dust them with the powdered sugar tomorrow just before the party. Thanks for postin.
