These homemade Italian pizzelles are easy to make and delicious! We grew up with him every Christmas and they were and still are a family tradition.
Mix all the wet ingredients in a large bowl until well blended (eggs, extract, oil and butter). I used a handheld blender with the mixing attachment.
Mix the dry ingredients in a smaller bowl (flour and salt). You'll notice I don't use baking powder or soda. Many recipes do, but we never have.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until smooth. It should resemble a wet cookie dough texture
Ladle a small amount into each pizzelle imprint/plate
Lower the lid and let cook until the pizzelle wafer is light but not too brown
Place on a cookie rack to cool.
Pour the confectioners sugar onto a plate
When the pizzelles are cool, dip the pizzelle in the confectioners sugar on both sides to fully coat. Tap off excess sugar.
Place in a container or plastic ziplock back to store. Or simply keep piled on a plate for everyone to enjoy right away!
