    Pizelle Recipe

    Today my mother asked me what I want for Christmas for under $60. I told her I want a Pizelle Maker. She gave me the gift of money and told me she would prefer if I picked out my own since she does not know anything about them. Anyone have one and have suggestions on a good brand to buy? I also would like to know if anyone would share their recipe. I do not care for anise flavor and most of the recipes I looked for online--have anise flavoring in them. I also prefer to have a recipe without brandy or whiskey in it. Anyone have a tried and true favorite recipe for pizelles. I really want to make these for Christmas.

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I will try this recipe as soon as I get a pizelle maker. I am going Christmas shopping tomorrow so will be hunting for one. They are hard to find around here. I have been looking at them for a couple years now. Can I ask what brand of pizelle iron you have?

    I also have the recipe, and do not make them with the anise.
    Any flavoring will do, and if you want you can ad FINELY ground nuts, or FINELY shaved chocolate to the mix.
    Too thick and they make a mess.
    On a side note, one of our boys scout troops were to make cookies from another country for the holiday celebration.
    Imagine 7-8 10 year olds in your kitchen making Pizzelles. Yes, it was a "little" messy, but it was fun.

    Happy baking

    Check Amazon.com for pizzele makers...you can read reviews and might see the same brands at the store.
    I personally think that the single pizzele maker makes a nicer pizzele...I would think the double one would yeild imperfect pizzele where they would invariably touch.
    Don't forget to try and make icecream bowls with your standard recipe...all you have to do is take it off the iron hot and drape over an upside down bowl and allow to cool.

    I have a double pizelle maker and once you find the right "spoon" to use they will not run together. Along with making bowls for ice cream, I roll them and they make great cannoli tubes!!!!!!! and you can put frosting in between two of them and make a delicious "tea biscuit"........I am sure others have good ideas too.

    the best iron I have found is made by the Palmer company. My recipe came from my Italian mother-in-law and makes between 5 and 6 dozen.
    2 sticks oleo and 8 eggs; cream together and then add
    2cups sugar, 1 tbsp vanilla, 1 tsp anise and 1 tsp orange extract. Mix well and then add 5 cups of flour, one at a time.
    enjoy

    I work at a thrift store 1 day a week. Last year a new/in the box with instructions Villaware (Quattro Pizzelle Baker came in a I bought it for $5.00. Works great. I have a couple of recipes I've gotten from foodnetwork.com and allrecipes.com
    I don't care for the taste of anise. The recipes I use don't have anise in them. If you need the specific recipes, give me a shout and I'll send them to you.

    I have a double pizelle maker - take one off at a time and fold in half like a taco, while still warm, and insert sayings, wishes etc like a fortune cookie. I did this for a quilt retreat one year with Quilt sayings I had collected for over a year. Everyone loved them.
