These beautiful biscuits are an Italian Christmas tradition but they do require a pizzelle iron, similar to a waffle iron in appearance.
I just bought a pizzelle maker and have been experimenting with different recipes. These turned out great........ thin and crispy. We loved them! They're addicting. Thanks! - 11 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My grandparents used to make pizzelles and have them fresh and ready for us when we visited. When my grandmother passed away, I got the pizzelle iron but no recipe! This recipe has the head-on exact taste of hers, and everybody LOVED them. THANKS!! - 02 Feb 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These came really good! But I only added 3 cups of flour instead of 3 1/2 and put anise extract instead of Lemon Zest. I also put about a tablespoon of anise seeds. - 20 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
