Recipe Tips

If using a stovetop pizzelle iron, heat iron over medium heat. (Iron is hot when a drop of water sizzles when dropped on open iron.) Place 1 rounded tablespoonful of batter in center of heated pizzelle iron; close lid. Bake 1 minute; turn iron over. Continue baking 1- 2 minutes or until evenly browned on both sides. Open iron; lift pizzelle off with thin spatula.

I have my grandmother's recipe who is from Italy and she got it from her mother and absolutely it is 100% butter in the recipe NO margarine. The traditional way to make Pizzelles is using anise flavoring. They are sprinkled with powdered sugar NO cinnamon nor nutmeg.

Why didn't you post my comment from yesterday?

If you make pizzelles with butter your cookies will be heavy and hard, not thin and crispy. You should be able to see light thru the cookies. Use 100% margarine, not the light kind. You will notice a difference.

Very easy to make and my family loves them, tender crisp, not to sweet cookie. dusted with powder sugar and cinnamon. I have also made them with a orange flavoring and zest either way you can not go wrong with this recipe.
