The secret to these cookies is the iron. A good pizzelle iron and knowing how it heats will make or break the outcome. It’s like knowing the difference between cooking with gas or electric. A pizzelle iron can be compared to a waffle iron in the way it works. If you can make a waffle then you can make a pizzelle. Serve these dusted with powdered sugar, with jam on top, or try my favorite with nutella! #pizzelle #cookie See also Ultimate Cookie Bloopers for more recipes!
