Pizzelles are actually a recipe that I have started making at some point in the past couple years. I have no idea what drove me to make a recipe that required I buy yet another kitchen gadget, but I love these cookies and haven't regretted the purchase once.
These are quick & easy to whip up. If you like the "tie-dyed" look, add sprinkles right before you spoon the batter up (add to a small amount of the batter at a time, or you'll end up with a brown mess). As the dough spreads out, the color spreads with it. I like to roll mine around a turkey baster to add more visual interest. (Must do this immediately while they are hot)
PIZZELLES (From AllRecipes)
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until thick. Stir in the melted butter and vanilla. Sift together the flour and baking powder, and blend into the batter until smooth.
Heat the pizzelle iron, and spray with oil. Drop about one tablespoon of batter onto each circle on the iron. You may need to experiment with the amount of batter and baking time depending on the iron. Bake for 20 to 45 seconds, or until steam is no longer coming out of the iron. Carefully remove cookies from the iron. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
