Are you new to pizzelle? Let me explain what it is first.
What is a Pizzelle Cookie?
The pizzelle are traditional Italian waffle cookies made from flour, eggs, sugar, butter or vegetable oil, and flavoring.
When you say "pizzelle" make sure to put a bit of Italian flare on the word and you will probably be saying it correctly. It's kind of fun to say! ?

Our Baking Essential List:
- For baking casseroles, we use Glass Baking Dishes. I especially like the dishes with lids so leftovers can be transferred straight to the fridge.
- Silicone Kitchenware is my favorite because they don't scratch my cookware and are super easy to clean!
- To prepare all of those ingredients a Glass Cutting Board is a must. We even keep ours on our counter at all times.
- This Knife Set will also become your favorite! They cut beautifully and with the hollow design of the knife, food doesn't stick to the blade.

oh these look great! I need to borrow your pizzelle waffle maker
This batter isn’t working for me 🙁 It keeps sticking to the iron and not making the shape
I am so sorry Michelle. Did you butter your pizzelle maker? Maybe you didn't let it cook long enough.
These are gorgeous! I've never had a pizzelle cookie, but now I'm adding the pan to my wish list. Although, it could be pretty scary to be able to have fresh cookies in under 45 seconds. 😉
I love pizzelles and I seem to only make them at Christmas. I do the traditional ones so these look so much better.

These cookies are simply elegant! Love them ♥
Pinned, yummed and shared 🙂
Wow, these are gorgeous! I often wonder if our great great grandmother's would just die when they see our food of today - the ingredients we have and modern equipment! A perfect example of mixing the new and the old! Thanks for sharing on Throwback Thursday and I'll be pinning this to our TBT pinterest! Hope to see you next time!!
Can choc.chip pizelle b frozen, or should I dip two days before eat.
I have never tried freezing them, but I did find this...
When completely cool, wrap them in groups of six in plastic wrap and place in airtight containers. Pizzelle can be made ahead and frozen for up to three months.
I made the Dipped Chocolate Chip Pizzelle Cookies for Christmas and they were a hit! Thank you for posting the recipe.
My observation is about how perfectly round the cookies are in the photos and I wonder if you trimmed them. Mine did not look like that. Some of them were even but some of them had uneven star edges. Should they be made large enough to trim the edges so that they are perfectly round?
Christine, I am so glad you and your crew loved them!
If you look at picture #3 in the post you will see that some of mine weren't very perfect either. 😂
Trimming the edges for a perfect cookie is the easiest way to get the picture-perfect look. But, even the not-so-perfect-looking ones are delicious too!
