about them with an image of cookie swap bags and recipe attached. I'm copying that.
This is the version I grew up with in Pittsburgh. Neighborhood kids were corralled to help other neighbor families bake these BY. THE. HUNDREDS for weddings and such.
Forced Child Labor Pizzelles
1/2 C oil
1/2 C butter, melted & cooled
1 1/3 C sugar
1 TBL vanilla extract (or 2 Tsp Vanilla PLUS 2 Tsp Anise oil)
4 C flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt.
Stir dry ingredients together.
Beat eggs, oil, butter, sugar and vanilla together. Add flour mix and hand-stir until smooth. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto a hot pizzelle (or Krumkake) iron. Bake 1 minute. Cool to rack. Store in tin.
Makes 6 dozen 4" cookies.
PS: A few years back I made a version that used lemon oil (quite a lot and it's lemon oil....not extract) with fresh lemon zest instead of the vanilla and/or anise and thought those were amazing! Gave them with a jar of lemon curd.
PPS: I remember my mother would get the small bottle of anise oil (not extract) from the local Thrift drug store pharmacy. I still don't know why to this day.
