Pizzelle are the oldest known cookie! The first pizzelle came from the region of Abruzzo in the 8th century! The word "pizzelle" means "flat" and "round" in Italian. These cookies are extremely crisp, buttery, and light. You can never eat just one.
Many recipes call for only anise or only vanilla. However, this recipe combines anise, lemon, and vanilla, giving them THE BEST flavor. My Noni has passed this traditional recipe down to me. I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as we do!
Makes about 50 pizzelle
4 cups flour
1 1/3 cup sugar
2 sticks of butter
4 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. of each flavor: vanilla, lemon, & anise
