Recipe by Cookin'Diva
Pizzelles (pronounced Pitt-SELLS) are Italian cookies that are baked in an electric appliance that looks something like a waffle iron. Normally they are left in a flat shape, but with this recipe, you shape the hot cookies over a small-bottomed glass to create a cup shape. These crisp dessert cups are the perfect holder for a scoop of chocolate mousse or a fruit granita. This is a spectacular finish for any meal, but especially for an Italian meal!

Oh I love this recipe! The lemon zest puts this over the top. Instead of the lemon extract I used fresh lemon juice. I set the machine on 3 which is medium and I think that I would cook them a little longer that one minute each I had to work fast to form three of them at a time, which is what my machine does. But after a few times I only cooked two at a time a little easier to shape. I filled them with recipe#61829 which worked nicely together. I suggest not to fill them ahead of time because they may go a bit soggy. Thanks for sharing this recipe, One I will be making again. Made for the Taste of Yellow in the cooking photo forum.
