  1. Beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy. Stir in the melted margarine and anise extract. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir in gradually. Dough will be sticky.
  2. Preheat your pizzelle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Drop batter by rounded spoonfuls onto the iron. Close and cook for about 90 seconds, or until steam stops coming out of the iron. Carefully remove and cool. Store in an airtight tin at room temperature.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I got 7 and 1/2 dozen pizzelles out of this recipe. I added 2 and 1/2 teaspoons of Anise Seed along with the Anise extract. Then I varied the recipe by substituting the Anise extract with 3 tabl...

Fantastic. My Italian inlaws like them better than their own! I use vanilla instead of anise - just personal preference and then dust them with powdered sugar. Addendum: I use real unsalted bu...

The ingredients in this recipe are the same as mine, but I use butter. My recipe came from an elderly Italian woman who made the BEST pizzelles! My instructions say to sift the flour and bakin...
