Day 13: Favorite Cookie Recipe

I did this for my favorite holiday recipe, but I will share one more my mom and I always made! (Ok more my mom, but I have helped!)

These pizzelles are light and crisp. Serve them plain or dusted with powdered sugar. Also, they can be easily shaped while still hot right off the iron and formed into a cone, cylinder, or even a cup and filled with your favorite filling. To keep them crisp, store them in an air tight container.

3 eggs
1 3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. anise seed or extract
1/2 c. butter (1/4 lb.)
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Do not use more than 1/2 cup butter and don't use oil as a substitute.
Beat eggs and sugar. Add cooled melted butter and vanilla and anise. Sift flour and baking powder and add to egg mixture. Batter will be stiff enough to be dropped by spoon. Batter can be refrigerated to be used at a later time. Makes 30 pizzelles.

You need a pizzelle iron, but it is totally worth investing in!

This isn't the exact recipe my mom and I use, but they are delicious. I promise! Pictures from here and here


  1. I love Love LOVE pizzelles! I'm getting married soon and it's sort of tradition for everyone in our family to bring a cookie and I am desperately hoping that someone brings these. I have requested them so I'm hoping to get them!

  2. Wow, I've honestly never heard of pizzelles! But they look like they would be so good!
