Pizelle Recipe

  Italian Cookie

6 eggs
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup (1/2 lb.) butter or margarine, melted
2 Tbls. Anise or vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour (approx.)
4 tsp.baking powder

Beat eggs, adding sugar gradually. Beat until smooth. Add cooled melted butter or margarine and the vanilla or anise. sift flour and baking powder and add to egg mixture. Dough will be sticky enough to be dropped by spoon. Preheat (seasoned) iron on medium high heat, and brush a thin coat of shortening on all surfaces. When both sides are hot, place a Tablespoon of dough just to the back of the center of the iron (towards the hinge). DO NOT press the top half down, but let it come down gently while the cookie is starting to bake. (If some dough runs out on one side, it can be trimmed off with a knife after baking). Bake for 30 to 40 seconds on each side.
This will make 5 dozen
