Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter melted and cooled
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon Anise extract
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Method

In bowl, beat eggs with sugar until pale and thickened; beat in butter and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk flour with baking powder; stir into egg mixture to make sticky dough.

For each cookie, drop 1 tbsp (15 mL) batter slightly toward back of pattern on hot pizzelle press. Gently close press, without pressing lid; cook for about 1 minute or until golden and cookies release easily from press. Using fork or knife, transfer cookie to rack; let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Stack in batches of 8 to 10 and wrap in plastic wrap or bags; store at room temperature for up to 3 days.)
