    pizzelle recipes

    Mom just bought a pizzelle maker and we're going to be making them this year. Anyone have any good recipes? We are not a big fan of anise flavored. Thanks so much!

    My father used to make pizzelles for us every year. He would substitue, any flavor he wanted. And believe me he loved to experiment. For the butter pecan flavor he would add the lorraine flavoring,butter pecan, and he would chop,really fine pecans and add to batter. Not a lot but 1/4c. or so. He made Pineapple,Banana,Orange,with orange flavor and zest,key lime with zest and flavoring. Please make all kinds. They all turn out great. Don't get discourage when making them, it takes time to figure exact time to cook,

    I wanted to add, that we had a small brush and brused the maker with oil(not olive oil) after every set made. They are wonderful. This is something I make every year and give away as gifts, just as my father did, somethings really bring back memories.

    thanks gennie1950 - i think it will be fun. For our wedding 8 years ago ( we got married on Dec 20 - what was I thinking doing that to our families five days before Christmas? lol) our neighbor across the hall made us some for the reception and she put whiskey in hers. The alcohol baked out but left a good flavor. it does bring back memories - my grandmother made them.

    DH used to make these to sell at flea markets, maple flavoring was his biggest seller. Lemon is nice too. Don't forget chocolate!!

    Why are we referring to quilts at Vermont quilts when she's looking for pizzelle recipes? Did I miss something?

    Oh, I have to go get my pizzelle maker out. I made several batches when I got the maker but then put it away (with all the other "things") and forgot about it. The hardest part for me was getting just the right amount of batter on the maker so that I didn't have mis-shapened pizzelles.

    Oh, you bring back memories of childhood! My best friend's mother made them!

    gennie1950: Did your father substitute the flavoring for the vanilla? If not, how much did he use?
    I love these but have only made vanilla & chocolate. Would love to try different flavors.
