Classic Pizzelles

With Easter less than a week away, I am feeling really behind on my baking. I usually like to make a couple of yummy treats to enjoy with coffee after a nice dinner. Or, you know, for breakfast…

I’ve already shared one of my Easter favorites, Italian Biscuit Cookies. Pizzelles are another favorite of mine. We make them for Christmas and Easter. If you have never had a pizzelle, it’s basically a light, waffle-like cookie that is baked in a cookie press to give it it’s unique shape and design. I love pizzelles because they are not overly sweet or too heavy.

Obviously, without the iron, it’s a little difficult to make these cookies. I highly recommend this Cuisinart Pizzelle Press. I’ve had it for years and it works great! I don’t typically like to have a bunch of appliances lying around, but this one is a must for this Italian girl!
