My favorite Pizzelles

So here we are, 8 days into the New Year… and inquiring minds want to know…

Have you kept up with your resolutions?

I have.

insert wicked grin here...

Let’s just say that someone (no names mentioned) is learning the hard way that I say what I mean and I mean what I say.


Pizzelles – adapted from Villaware

3 eggs
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 oz unsalted butter, melted
1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder

Preheat a pizzelle iron and grease it lightly with nonstick spray.

Using an electric mixer, eat eggs and sugar together at medium high speed until light yellow and thick ribbons fall from the beaters, 2-3 minutes. Add the butter and vanilla and beat until blended.

Whisk together the flour and baking powder and fold into the egg/butter mixture.

Place about one tablespoon of batter into the center of each grid (my appliance has space for two cookies), close the lid and cook until the steaming stops, about 1 minute. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining batter.
