I just love pizzelles! I never really tasted one until I was an adult. I'm not sure if they are regional or I was just never in the right place at the right time as a kid :) This recipe is a tried and true version. It was given to me by a friend who was like a mom to me and I have used it a dozen or so times since then. It comes out great every time.
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
Beat butter until smooth. Gradually add sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir.
In separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Add egg mixture. Stir. Dough will be sticky and soft.
Place by spoonful onto hot pizzelle iron. Follow iron instructions for baking times.
Makes about 6 dozen.
