People around here don't know what they are. A co-worker brought some in and said "I bet you don't know what these are". Wrong. My grandmother lived in the Little Italy section of town. I got the recipe from her.
- 3 eggs
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 3⁄4 cup melted butter
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 2 tablespoons whiskey
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon anise oil (oil not extract)
- Beat together ingredients beginning with eggs and follow the list.
- Refrigerate batter overnight.
- Spoon batter in to your iron at the quantity recommended by the manufacturer.
- Cook for about 1 minute or until golden brown.
- Use the anise oil!
- Trust me the anise extract does not work.
This is a good pizzelle recipe. I tried this but had to doctor it a little to my taste. I used more anise - just because I like it that way - I cooked them for about a little less time because I don't like them crispy. I am trying to get them to taste like pizzelle that I buy from a place in Scottsdale called Gina's Homemade. You can see them at http://ginashomemade.com/products.shtml They also make very tasty biscotti that I gave to some friends as gifts. Nice recipe! 5 stars for your pizzelle.
Great pizzelle recipe,came very crispy and tastety
