You can make pizzelles out of any flavor you like. There are many different kinds or flavors of pizzelles some other ones of them are chocolate, lemon. The lemon in which is dye yellow with yellow food coloring. Also you can make pumpkin flavor for in the fall months and even red devils food cake ones. So there are many different flavors This is a easy recipe that you and your family can make together and have fun making these pizzelles.
Also after you take these pizzelles out of the pizzelle iron you should let them cool on a baking rake. Then after they cool you can take and start packaging them up in either plastic containers or if you don't have plastic containers you can use plastic freezer bags and I would double them. And then I would put them in the bags and put them in your freezer. You can also place your pizzelles in plastic containers and place them in the freezer. So that you will have them for later. In which you and your family and friends can have them to enjoy the entire year from placing them in the freezer. Now I hope you enjoy making these pizzelles and you and your family have fun eating them.
Little history of the modern pizzelle bakers iron.
In 1906, Angelo Vitantonio received a U.S.Patent for the first pasta machine. Which started a four generations of Italian kitchenware in the United States. Angelo's son Luigi then continued the manufacture of Italian kitchenware in the Little Italy neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio for over 40 years. The family tradition carried on through Angelo's grandson Gene, whose award winning designs are found in many of today's pizzelle baker products. Now Gene son Robert Vitantonia is making pizzelle baker machines for the people in the 21 century.
