As long as I can remember my mom has made pizzelles for holidays. I always assumed they were complicated to make but you know what? They are so simple- you only need some basic ingredients, a pizzelle iron and some time.

3 eggs
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

Beat the eggs and sugar until thick. Stir in the melted butter and vanilla extract. Add the sifted flour and baking soda; mix until batter is smooth.

Heat the pizzelle iron. Drop batter onto each circle on the iron- the amount of batter you use depends on the size of your iron. I used a little more than a teaspoon for each of my cookies and my iron is on the smaller side. Baking time also depends on your iron and the color you want your cookies to end up. Believe me, you'll hit pizzelle nirvana and start cranking out perfect cookies. Carefully remove cookies from the iron and let cool completely.

To fancy them up you can sprinkle powdered sugar on top. These make great gifts around the holidays too- people will think you're a baking genius.

My only qualms with making pizzelles is that they seem to disappear really fast because my family loves them so much. I definitely have to restrain myself because I can eat them just as fast as I can make them!
