2  c all-purpose flour
1  T baking powder
1 1/2  t ground nutmeg
1/2  t ground cardamom
3  eggs
3/4  c sugar
1/3  c butter, melted and cooled
2  t vanilla
Confectioners' sugar

In a medium mixing bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and cardamom; set aside. In a small mixing bowl beat the eggs with an electric mixer on high speed about 4 minutes or until thick and lemon-colored. Using medium speed, gradually beat in the sugar.

Beat in the cooled butter and the vanilla. Add flour mixture; beat on low speed until combined.

Heat electric pizzelle iron according to manufacturer's directions. (Or, heat pizzelle iron on range top over medium heat until a drop of water sizzles on the grid. Reduce heat to medium-low.)

For each pizzelle, place a slightly rounded tablespoon of batter on pizzelle iron, slightly off-center toward back of grid. Close lid. Bake according to manufacturer's directions. (For a nonelectric iron, bake about 2 minutes or until golden brown, turning once.) Turn pizzelles out onto a paper towel to cool. Repeat with remaining batter. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

Time: 40 minutes   Makes: 18

I have owned a pizzelle iron my entire adult life. That was the only way I could have pizzelles once I moved away from home. You can buy a pizzelle iron at: This recipe came from:
