Pizzelles are a delicious Italian wafer cookie that my grandmother made every year for Christmas! Light and crispy, these buttery vanilla pizzelles are great for the holidays, dessert, or anytime. Your family will gobble these right up.
"Pizzelles are light wafer cookies made from a simple batter flavored with a hint of lemon or in this case, maple. The batter is cooked on a special pizzelle iron (also known as a cialde iron) which embosses the cookies with decorative patterns such as flowers and stars. In central Italy, where the pizzelle originated, families would choose their own distinctive patterns and pass them down from generation to generation. These are a tradition for Italian families in R.I. & Mass".
