I was so excited last week when my Pizzelle maker arrived. It took less than a week. It was a great deal. We went to a Christmas party on Sunday and made them.
What you need:
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup ground hazelnuts (i used a 1/4 cup)
2 cups all-purpose flour
What To Do:
Whisk the eggs with the sugar and salt until light. Melt the butter and stir in.
Sift together all the remaining ingredients except the hazelnuts and fold in.(we didn’t sift)
Stir in the hazelnuts last.
Heat Pizzelle iron and place 1 teaspoon of batter on each imprint. Close iron and bake 30 seconds.
Cool on racks. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
They darken as they cool so don’t worry if they look a little light in color.
