Adam loves these traditional anise flavored cookies. I bought him a pizzelle iron at a yard sale for $3.00 this summer. He made these pizzelle cookies this weekend. Remi absolutely loves them and has been eating them with vanilla ice cream. YUM!

6 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled
2 Tbsp. anise extract
3 1/2 cups four
4 tsp. baking powder

Beat eggs and sugar with mixer until fluffy.
Stir in melted butter and anise extract.
Combine flour and baking powder and stir in gradually. Dough will be sticky.
Preheat pizzelle iron according to iron instructions.
Drop batter by rounded spoonfuls onto the iron.
Close and cook for about 1 minute. It really depends on your pizzelle iron.
Carefully remove and cool.
Store in an airtight container.

If you do not like anise flavor, these cookies are great with any flavor you like such as vanilla.

    Very nice! Here’s Adam’s and my Mom’s recipe: 12 eggs, 1 tablespoon anise extract but oil is stronger, 1/2 cup oil. 1/2 cup butter melted, 1/2 cup crisco melted, 5 cups flour, 4 teaspoons baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 3 cups sugar. The process is the same. — Merry Christmas!
