DAY 1: PIZZELLE
For my first post, I wanted something special. I looked and looked, and finally, I found this recipe about pizzelle by Culinary Hill. So I tried it out, here are some photos on how they turned out:
Culinary Hill's recipe would make 36 - 40 pizzelle's, which was too much for my liking. I 1/4 the recipe and I made 5 pizzelles. The mix was quite simple, only six ingredients! It was really quick and only took me about five minutes to finish it. Once I mixed all my ingredients together it was a sort of thick texture, which I thought was odd considering it was meant to be like a "waffle" consistency. It turns out that it's totally okay, and it worked perfectly fine.
A pizzelle iron looks a lot like a waffle iron, but it's very different. First of all, it has a design, for example, mine had a flower print. Another feature my iron had was its ability to tell me when my pizzelle were ready. First I tried to put a tablespoon of the mix on the iron, but that was too much. I finally settled with 3/4 of a tablespoon.
In the end, my pizzelle's worked out well! I even finished mine off with a dust of powdered sugar!
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1/4 tablespoon vanilla paste/extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1. Preheat pizzelle iron and lightly coat with butter.
2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, butter, vanilla paste, baking powder, and egg.
3. Drop 3/4 tablespoon of batter onto the heated pizzelle iron and close.
4. Bake as directed by the manufacturer or until golden brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. With a nonstick spatula, remove each pizzelle to a plate or cooling rack; repeat with the remaining batter.
5. Cool completely and top with a coat of powdered sugar.
