Directions

  1. Preheat the pizzelle iron.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the eggs and sugar. Slowly add melted butter, vanilla, and anise extract, while mixing. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and anise seeds. If a thicker cookie is preferred, add 1/2 cup more flour.
  3. Drop cookies by rounded tablespoons onto the center of the grid. Close the iron and cook until steaming stops. This could take 30 to 90 seconds, depending on the iron used.

This made a nice batter that was easy to work with. I substituted 1 tsp. of orange extract for one of the teaspoons of vanilla. The anise seed gives this a nice nutty texture. My only regret is that I didn't invest in a more expensive pizzelle maker that would have given me a deeper imprint.

Just the recipe I was looking for, worked perfectly for my Teflon coated iron...The taste and texture were perfect. I followed a reviewers suggestion of putting the batter in a pastry bag, excellent tip! My recipe made more than 18.
