Family Story

My grandmother made these waffle-shaped cookies at Christmas time. They are Italian and I imagine she learned how to make them from my great-grandmother, my grandfather's mother, who was an Italian immigrant. My father kept the tradition going as an adult and taught me how to make them. When he passed away, I took the tradition over and make them every Christmas. I use the recipe card written by my grandmother and use her pizzelle iron, which was made in the 1940s.

Directions

1 Step

Beat eggs well. Add oil. Mix in sugar gradually. Add anise. Then add flour, one spoonful at a time. Mix well. Lightly grease a pizzelle iron and heat on stove over medium-high. Press a spoonful of batter in the iron and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. Makes about 36.
