Pizzelle - made with vegetable oil


Makes 2-3 dozen depending on the size of the pizzelle maker
The vegetable oil will make them thin and crisp.

Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
1-1/2 teaspoons extract (lemon, rum, almond, vanilla, or anise)
3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Directions:

In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and oil.  Add the eggs, salt, zest, and extract.  Beat well. Gradually stir in the flour until the mixture is smooth.  It will be very soft and sticky.

Heat the pizzelle maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.  Wet your hands. Take a scoop of dough the size of a walnut and roll between your hands to form a ball. Or you can use a spoon to place the dough on the pizzelle baker. Place the dough on the pizzelle surface.  Close and clamp the lid and cook until golden brown, about 30 seconds.  Transfer pizzelles to paper towels to cool.  Repeat with remaining dough.

Makes 2-3 dozen depending on the size of the pizzelle maker
The butter will make them more flavorful than those made with oil.


Ingredients:

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon triple sec (you can substitute another liqueur or extract)
1-3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

Directions:

In a large bowl, beat together the eggs and sugar. Add the butter, vanilla, and triple sec. Add the flour and baking powder and mix well. The batter should be stiff enough to be dropped by spoon. The batter can also be refrigerated for later use.

Pizzelle are known as ferratelle in the Lazio region of Italy. In Molise they may be called ferratelle, cancelle, or pizzelle. The cookie dough or batter is put into a pizzelle iron. The iron stamps a snowflake pattern onto both sides of the thin golden-brown cookie, which has a crisp texture once it is cooled.
