I used my krumkake iron to make these pizzelle but you can use a tradiitonal pizzelle iron instead if you like.  It's very common to flavor pizzelle with anise. If you want, you can add a drop or two of anise oil to give them a beautiful liquorice flavor.

You will need:

3 large eggs
1 /2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
few drops of vanilla extract or anise oil

  1. In a large bowl mix eggs and sugar and beat until light and creamy.
  2. Mix in oil and beat until well incorporated.
  3. Add flour, baking powder and vanilla and stir until you have a smooth batter.
  4. Heat your pizzelle/krumkake iron and bake the cookies using about 1 heaping tablespoon of batter at a time.
  5. Bake until golden and let them cool on a wire rack.
