|3/4 cup sugar|
|1/2 cup melted margarine|
|1 tablespoon vanilla extract or anise extract|
|1 3/4 cups flour|
|2 teaspoons baking powder|
|1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar for dusting|
1. Plug in pizzelle iron to preheat.
2. Put waxed paper under your iron to trap any leakage from the iron.
3. Lay waxed paper on the countertop or table to place pizzelles when you remove them from the iron. Grab a seat and start the fun! It takes about 45 minutes to make one batch.
4. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and sugar.
5. Add melted margarine and extract.
6. Add flour and baking powder. Dough will be sticky.
7. Follow directions for your iron. I grease or spray the iron in the beginning only once, before I make the first one. I use one teaspoon of dough for each pizzelle. Use a thin butter knife or spreader to lift the pizzelles off the iron when they are done.
8. Dust with confectioner’s sugar as soon as they come off the iron.
9. Store pizzelles in a tin. They last for a few weeks.
Add to the above batter For Variations:
¼ c. cocoa
¼ c. sugar
¼ tsp. baking powder
Colored Pizzelles : just add coloring to the dough
Pizzelles with Nuts: add ½ c. finely chopped nuts
Swirled Pizzelles: (my own way) I put ½ teaspoon of chocolate dough and ½ teaspoon of vanilla dough for one pizzelle. I really like this! It is pretty and different.
