Pizzelle are traditional Italian cookies that are made using a special iron with decorative patterns. Here is a recipe for making pizzelle at home:
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the melted butter and vanilla extract, and mix until well combined.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, stirring until a thick batter forms.
Preheat your pizzelle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of batter onto each patterned side of the iron. Close the iron and cook for 30-45 seconds, or until the pizzelle are golden brown and crisp.
Use a fork or spatula to carefully remove the pizzelle from the iron and transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining batter, making sure to re-grease the iron between batches.
Once the pizzelle are cool, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
To serve, dust the pizzelle with powdered sugar, or sandwich them with your favorite filling such as Nutella or dulce de leche. Enjoy!
