So I hope you try this pizzelle recipe and hope you enjoy making them and also eating them with your friends and family.

This is one of the recipes for you. Pizzelles is one of these recipes for you to try.

Pizzelles

1/2 cup of Butter

2/3 cups of Sugar

3 Eggs

1 3/4 to 2 cups of Flour

1 tsp Baking powder

1 tsp of Anise

1 cup of chopped walnuts

Pinch of Salt

I double this recipe each time.

Mix all of these ingredients with a electric mixture.When you are during this get your pizzelle iron ready to bake the pizzelles. Follow the directions that came with your pizzelles iron on how to bake them and how long. Let me know if you like to make this recipe? Hope you enjoy this recipe? Also when my mother made pizzelles she would change the one ingredient instead of the favor of anise. She would put black walnut or vanilla flavoring instead of anise. 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.

When you go to buy a pizzelle baker iron make sure that you look for what I am writing about below. First make sure that is a Pizzelle Baker.And it makes "Baked authentic, thin & crispy Italian pizzelles. Next check and see that the machine haves a Long, stay-cool handles with clip for the thinnest pizzelles. Make sure also that the machine that your looking to buy is a pizzelle maker haves the beatiful, traditional Italian pizzelle pattern, make two at a time, 5 inch diameter pizzelles. if it haves all of that then go ahead and buy the machine.
