Ingredients

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

3/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter melted, cooled

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

2 teaspoons vanilla

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Beat eggs in bowl on high speed until thick and lemon-colored. Beat on medium speed, gradually adding sugar, until well mixed. Add all remaining ingredients; continue beating until smooth.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat electric pizzelle iron according to manufacturer’s directions.

  3. STEP 3

    Place rounded tablespoonful batter in center of heated pizzelle iron; close lid.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake 1-3 minutes or until evenly browned on both sides. Open iron; lift pizzelle off with thin spatula. Cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter. Store in loosely covered container.

Tip #1

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.

This recipe is almost xactly as my Mom and Aunt used to make. Only difference, ours calls for Anise and vanilla. Just a preference.

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.
