This was given to me by a friend many years ago and it is the only recipe that I like.....I have tried dozens of pizzelle recipes over the years and always return to this one. My family does not like anise flavoring and this recipe always gets rave reviews because they are a different flavor.I hope that you will try it, you'll love them! I always dust them lightly with powdered sugar for an extra special treat. My pizzelle iron is made by Palmer Manufacturing and it is the absolute best iron in the world.....you NEVER make a bad cookie, everyone comes out perfect. I also use a very small ice cream scoop to portion my batter.
