Pizzelle for the Holidays


For the Pizzelle:

  • 1 dozen dozen large eggs
  • 3.5 cups sugar
  • 2 cups margarine (however I use butter)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ounce anise extract (I also use anise oil which is stronger, so I use a half a bottle)
  • 9 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • Liquore Galliano


Beat eggs and then add sugar and beat well.

Add melted margarine or butter.

Add flavorings.

Gradually add the mixture of flour and salt.

I then add about ΒΌ cup of the Galliano. You can add whatever amount you like.

I use a Kitchen Aid with the hook because there is a lot of flour in this recipe and the dough gets heavy, not a regular electric beater.

Refrigerate overnight or for a few hours to marinate the flavors.

Drop a big teaspoon in each pizzelle design. I have a 5 inch pizzelle iron.

I time the pizzelle for about 15-20 seconds.
