Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, anise oil, and whiskey until well blended. Gradually stir in flour until fully incorporated. Cover, and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat a pizzelle iron, and spray once with cooking spray. Drop tablespoons of batter onto the centers of the patterns. Close the lid, and cook until steam no longer comes out, about 1 1/2 minutes. Check, and adjust cooking time if necessary. Carefully remove cookies, cool, and store in an airtight tin at room temperature.

I've been making Pizzelles for more than 20 years. Storage is the Biggest Issue! Around Christmas, huge humidity issues ... I store my pizzelles in a glass Jar with those little "stay-fresh Silica Gel capsules that come in vitamin/medicine jars & also new shoe boxes". (What a HUGE difference!!!! BEWARE: if you have children that can access cookies, put them high up so they cant access the little chemical packs". Especially helpful for large batches... not that they last very long at all....

No you can't use a wafflle iron! Butter makes the difference and makes them crisp. Anise oil, lemon oil et. is much better than he extracts in these flavors. Also, add lemon zest or orange zest to the batter. I've never heard of using Anise seeds in these...I wouldn't like that and as far as I know th anise oil is authentic not the seeds.
