Pizzelle Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by LAURIE

Pizzelle iron is needed to make these cookies, but they are so good that I would recommend buying one! From my friend Dianne's aunt, these are heavenly. Prep time does not include overnite chilling, and cook time is a guesstimate as everyones iron cooks differently. You may have to experiment with a few cookies before you get the hang of it.

I dusted off my pizzelle iron which I normally use only at Christmas and gave this recipe a try. I have always used either an anise flavor or just vanilla and I'm not sure I was as pleased with the rum in it. Maybe just used to the others. I halved this recipe and it worked out well. Thanks for posting, Laurie.
