Pizzelles



After deciding that I was going to bake something, I went on a search for something interesting. I think that may be one of my problems. Im compulsory, I decide something, and then im like ...ummmm now what. But eventually I find something that I wanna make, and I make it. Right then.
Making Pizzelles is very similar to making waffles, but a little more labor intensive. But it is worth it, ohh yes. After taking the pizzelle off the hot iron, it is flimsy, and you can shape it into like a waffle cone, or press it into a cup to shape it as a bowl for ice cream or fruit. I kept it simple this time and just left them flat, and sprinkled them with powdered sugar.

Oooo and I remembered to put all the ingredients in this time ; )

Pizzelle

3 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
8 tbs butter
2 tsp vanilla (or almond extract)
1 tsp lemon zest
1 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder

-> In a mixing bwol, beat the eggs and sugar untill light and yellow and think ribbons fall from the whisk, 203 minutes. Add the melted butter, vanilla and lemon zest., and beat untill blended.

-> Sift together the flour, and baking powder. Add half of the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, fold untill just blended, add remaining flour and fold again until just incorporated.

-> Heat the pizzelle iron. Brush lightly with butter and place about 1 tbs of batter on iron. The excess batter that may ooze out should be cut off immediately. Bake until colden brown. Roemove and cool on a rack.

-> Repeat with remaining batter to make about 25 pizzelles. Straight after being taken off the iron, you can shape them before the cool and harden.

-> sprinkle with confectioners sugar if desired.

Elra, The pan is really nice for the pizzells, but I havent used it for anything else. Mine has the capibilities for waffles, and paninis I think, though I haven't tried it out. That will be my next broject haha.
