These dainty little cookies are a real treat. They take me back to my grandmother’s kitchen. Her neighbor would make these delicious little cookies and bring them over every so often. How I loved them! I can’t say that these are as good as the ones I remember but I really do enjoy them.
My kids are amazed at the details in each cookie too. You can play around with the flavors to make suit the tastes of your family. Sprinkle them with a bit of powdered sugar for a extra special treat!
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 T. vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 t. baking powder
Beat eggs and sugar until thick. Add in the melted butter and vanilla. Sift together the dry ingredients, and blend into the batter until smooth.
Heat the pizzelle iron, and brush with oil. Drop about one tablespoon of batter onto each side of the iron. You may need a little more or a little less depending on your iron. Bake until steam is no longer coming out of the iron. Carefully remove cookies from the iron and cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
