These delectable cookies are not only delicious but also hold a special place in Italian heritage. So, get ready to embark on a culinary journey as we dive into this delightful recipe that will surely satisfy your sweet tooth.
Let’s start with the ingredients you’ll need:
– 2 cups of all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon of baking powder
– 3 large eggs
– ¾ cup of granulated sugar
– ½ cup of unsalted butter, melted
– 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
– A pinch of salt
Now, let’s dive into the instructions:
1. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Set it aside for now.
2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until they are well combined and slightly pale in color.
3. Slowly add the melted butter and vanilla extract to the egg and sugar mixture. Mix well.
4. Gradually incorporate the flour mixture into the wet ingredients. Stir until all the ingredients are fully combined and form a smooth batter.
5. Preheat your pizzelle iron according to its instructions. Once heated, drop about a tablespoon of batter onto each imprint and close the iron. Cook the pizzelles for about 30 seconds or until they turn a golden brown color.
6. Carefully remove the pizzelles from the iron using a spatula and transfer them to a wire rack to cool. Repeat this process with the remaining batter.
