Yes, plain, anise-flavored pizzelles are delicious.  I grew up in a neighborhood with lots of Italian families, so pizzelles were always present around the holidays.

@ Joan, the edges should be crispy, but they are softer/thicker in the middle. Yummy and to die for cookies, in my opinion! I grew up on them, my mom making them during Xmas time.

@ Pat, yes...pizzelles...I love 'em. Thank you for the recipe, I am definitely going to give it a go this holiday season. Worse case, I end up with less than perfect pezzelles, but I will still eat 'em. lol

@Deidre. Here's a recipe I found for those Italian cookies, which are called Pizzelles.

My understanding is that you need a special pan to cook these that you can find Amazon.

Deidre, those look as though they would be nice and crispy. I've never made anything like that before.

Pat, I saw Brussel sprouts on the stem at the grocery store the other day. I know how good my Brussel sprouts were when I grew them. Your recipe sounds like a good one for these cold and rainy days.

I want to learn how to make these ^^ for this winter season...would make nice holiday gifts, too. If they're made right, they are so scrumptious!

@Pat - Wow, you're getting a deal. In this neck of the woods they're often over $3.00 a pound.

Comment by Pat on October 29, 2014 at 6:42pm

Bertold, I know what you mean about Honey Crisps. Those things are fantastic. And, they are apparently worth their weight in gold. Where I'm at, they're $1.99 a pound. And one of the large apples is about a pound. $2.00 an apple!!!! But damn, are they good.

Quick correction on the vinaigrette. It's 1/2 cup of olive oil.
Comment by Randall Smith on October 29, 2014 at 11:01am

Pat, great! Thanks for taking the time to write out the recipe. (Don'tcha love the spelling of recipe?)

Bertold, I recently read about how the name "honey crisp" came about. Interesting, considering the original name(s) (which I can't recall). It's all in the naming, they say.
