Caterina's Family Pizzelle Recipe
Posted: April 15, 2019
Source: Chef's Choice
Yields
70 pizzelles

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla or anise extract
  • 3 c. all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar

Directions:

  1. 1. Beat the eggs until smooth. Add the oil and vanilla (or anise) extract. Set aside.
  2. 2. Sift together the flour and baking powder, then add the sugar.
  3. 3. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and blend vigorously.
  4. 4. The mixture will be sticky and stiff but will relax into a soft dough consistency. Add a few tablespoons of water or flour to achieve the desired consistency.
  5. 5. Set the Color Control dial of the PizzellePro to about 3-3 1/2 and bake using the red and green indicator lights for timing (approximately 45 seconds). The baking time can be shortened by turning the Color Control dial up 1/2 a notch.

Author's Notes:

It is generally believed that pizzelles originated in Italy to mark an annual celebration. Initially baked over an open fire with relatively simple but effective irons, early pizzelles were proudly embossed with the family crest or some hint of the village of origin. Over time it became tradition to use pizzelles to celebrate any holiday or festive occasion but inevitably there were pizzelles for everyone at Christmas and Easter. The modern patterns found on these delicious waffle cookies are most commonly floral on one side and a woven basket-like pattern on the other.
