Precious Aunt Lill's Pizzale Waffles
- Ready In:
- 1hr 20mins
- Instructions: Pre-heat Pizzalle iron as instructions for iron dictate.
- Beat together eggs until lemon colored and gradually add sugar. Add cooled margarine, flavoring, and brown sugar. Beat together until smooth. Gradually add flour, a little at a time. Batter will thicken, so if necessary, finish mixing by hand until batter is thoroughly mixed.
- Spray pre-heated iron with cooking spray. Place your iron on top of several layers of newspaper to catch the drippings as they cook. Drop 1 tablespoon of batter in center of waffle maker (the Teflon one with patterned plates is preferred). Using a potholder, hold cover of iron down for 1 to 2 minutes or until waffle is golden brown. Trim excess batter off the plates with a butter knife or soft spatula if batter oozes out the sides while they are cooking. This keeps clean-up to a minimum later on. Don’t burn them! If top of iron sticks to batter when lifting, hold it down a few more seconds. When cooked properly, they should just have a slightly golden glow. Remove them with a fork, place on a flat surface and immediately while still hot trim the rough edges off with a sharp knife so they end up in a circular shape. Care for the iron like you would any teflon surface - don't scratch it.
- Cool waffles on flat surface, side by side -don’t stack while hot or they’ll get soggy. When completely cooled, sprinkle powdered sugar on them and serve on a pretty plate.
- These are delicious and they make wonderful edible gifts at holiday time or to bring to parties. You may also use the broken ones as mix-ins for ice cream, or may serve strawberries and coolwhip on top of them. They are best stored in a big tin with a well fitting lid. If you store them in plastic ware, they will get soggy.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I was raised in a food oriented culture: Italian, with all 4 of my grandparents coming from Sicily. I have a huge family and we all love to cook. I work part time after being a homemaker for the past 20 years. I am known for the great parties I throw at holiday time. I do love the NY Times cookbook and the Weight Watcher's Magazine. My pet peeves are when my husband and kids sit down to a nicely prepared meal and invaribly one of them will say what's this? in a suspicious antagonistic tone, ie they are very simple eaters and hate to try new things.
