    I have been looking everywhere for this particular pizzelle recipe!!!!!THANK YOU SO MUCH It makes the BEST pizzells ever.Only thing I changed is to use anise oil{if you can find it}its usually sold in drugstores.It doesn't loose flavor as much as the extract but becareful you don't need near as much either! THANKS again for this recipe I was beging to think I would never find it,I could only remember the amount of eggs  -  26 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Awesome recipe! Thank you Ed, I lost my recipe. I substituted vanilla for the anise. I find my younger children like it better. It's yummy either way!  -  22 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The definitive pizzelle. I have a hand iron so I cannot speak for those with electric ones, but these are the best I have made in 30 years of italian baking. An option for "purists"; oil of anise can be substituted for anise flavoring...itlends a marvelous flavor but watch out because you only need about half as much [taste and add carefully, if you like instead of anise flavoring]. thanks for a great recipe  -  17 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
