Pumpkin Pizzelles

Pumpkin Pizzelles

“Pumpkin Pizzelles for the pumpkin fanatics I know!  These have a mild pumpkin and spice taste, nothing overwhelming, but very good and sure to be appreciated by everyone!   They are a nice change from the traditional pizzelles for the fall.  You do need an electric pizzelle maker and mine is by Villaware, without Teflon, which I think makes the best delicate, thin pizzelles. Enjoy!”   Makes:  about 30

INGREDIENTS:

3 eggs

½ cup butter, melted

⅓ cup pumpkin puree

½ cup sugar

½ cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 ¾ cup flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

⅛ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon ginger

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

¼ teaspoon cloves

½ cup walnuts, finely ground, optional

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the pizzelle iron.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, butter, pumpkin puree, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and walnuts if you are using them.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and mix well.
  5. Lightly spray the pizzelle maker with butter or oil spray and follow the directions for your pizzelle maker.
  6. Use a sieve to sprinkle confectioner’s sugar on the tops of the cooked pizzelles.

7. Pizzelles last for 3 to 4 weeks in an air-tight container.  If they are exposed to the air for any length of time, they will absorb moisture and become soft and limp.  If this happens, just heat them in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 2 minutes, or until they become crisp again.
