These beautiful biscuits are an Italian Christmas tradition but they do require a pizzelle iron, similar to a waffle iron in appearance.

Serves: 6 

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups (330g) white sugar
  • 250g butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 3 1/2 cups (440g) plain flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with an electric mixer until light. Add the sugar, butter, lemon zest and vanilla, mix well. Stir in the flour and baking powder.
  2. Heat pizzelle iron. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls onto the centre of the patterns, close the lid and cook for about 30 seconds. Test the cooking time on the first one because temperatures may vary. Remove biscuits carefully from the iron and cool on wire racks.
