Christmas Grandma's Pizzelle Recipe

Mancuso Family Recipe


This recipe should make around 100 Pizzelles. Cut everything in half to make a smaller batch.


      My YouTube Video "Making Pizzelles with Grandma" -

               Part 1 Making the Dough

               Part 2 Making the Pizzelles



- Pizzelle Maker (aka Pizzelle Iron)

- 12 eggs (cool in warm water)

- (1 lb) 4 sticks of unsalted butter (room temp.)

- 8 cups of flour + extra if needed

- 4 teaspoons of Baking Powder (optional)

      Grandma doesn't use it

- 1.5 cups of sugar

- 1 teaspoon Vanilla

- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon

- 2 tablespoon Anisette or Almond Extract

       (your flavor of choice)

- Confectionary Sugar (Dust on top of each cookie)



- Melt the 4 sticks of butter on low heat. Then, set aside to cool. VERY IMPORTANT!  

  This is where Grandma always yells at me.

- In a mixing bowl, combine 6 eggs and 1/2 the sugar. MIX. 

- Add the Vanilla, Cinnamon and Anisette or Almond Extract. MIX

- Add the remaining Eggs, Sugar and the cooled melted butter. MIX

- SLOWLY add the flour. A little at a time. MIX. VERY IMPORTANT!  

  I'm gonna tell ya, Grandma is going to yell! 

- If it's too thick to mix with a mixer, add extra flour and mix with spoon (or hands) until the batter isn't wet looking.

- Set aside for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator. (This is what Grandma does!)

- Turn on the Pizzelle Maker so it warms up.

- Scoop about a teaspoon of the batter & place it in the Pizzelle Maker.

- Set aside to cool down. Then, cover with Confectionary Sugar.



These also makes great Cannoli Shells.

When you take it out of the Pizzelle Maker, slowly fold and pinch the tops.
