Pizzelle Cookies

Pizzelle
Well, we tried another podcast. I am not sure if we are improving or getting worse. It will definitely make you laugh!
The recipe is below. Love The Kitchen Contessa and Her Kids xo
Pizzelles (Cremaldi Cookbook, Doubleday 1988)
makes 24 cookies
 
3 eggs beaten
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter melted and cooled
2 teaspoons of anise seed, vanilla extract or fresh zest
3   2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (3 cups was too much and made them tough instead of crispy with a snap)
2 tablespoons baking powder
 
1. Combine the beaten eggs, sugar, anise seed and butter in bowl. Wisk until sugar is dissolved. In another bowl combine the flour and baking powder, then add to the egg and sugar mixture.
 
2. Heat the pizzelle iron.
 
3. Using two tablespoonfuls for each, make balls of dough. We used an ice cream scoop. Because we used less flour it was too hard to roll into balls. Place both balls inside the iron and press down. If you’re using an electric iron, cook 1-2 minutes, or until the steam stops 45 seconds.
If your iron is hand-held cook over medium high heat on either a gas or electric stove for 2 minutes.
 
4. Repeat step 3 until you have used up all of the dough
