This is a staple in Italian households and are served mainly at holiday time or other important events such as Christenings, graduations, etc. This recipe has been in my family for generations and all my non-Italian friends love them. My Aunt, Lillian, whom we all loved so much was the lady who taught my cousins and I how to make these. She's passed away now, but Pizzale Waffles and Aunt Lill go hand in hand! I like this recipe because they are very easy to make and are beautiful to look at. Special note: you must have a Pizzale Waffle Iron to make them - the irons are available at most Italian food stores or better department stores.
