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.

  2. Refrigerate batter overnight.
  3. Spoon batter in to your iron at the quantity recommended by the manufacturer.

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 They also make very tasty biscotti that I gave to some friends as gifts. Nice recipe! 5 stars for your pizzelle.
