12 Days of Christmas Sweets: Pizzelles

I love Italian food! One year for Christmas, an Italian friend gave me a couple dozen of Pizzelles. I  ended up eating most of them myself and asked for a pizzelle maker for the following Christmas. They are so easy to make and can be ready in a matter of minutes. Last night I brought them to a Christmas cookie exchange and they were a hit!

6 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder 
1 1/2 cups sugar

Beat eggs until smooth and add the oil and vanilla. Sift the flour with the baking powder. Add sugar and beat vigorously.

Drop a large tablespoon of batter onto preheated and  pizzelle grill and close  for 45 seconds and remove when slightly golden brown.

Cut around with knife to remove excess along design line while cooling. Powder sugar tops or leave plain. Makes about 4-5 dozen.
