I love pizzelles. I love making them, I love eating them. I was without a pizzelle iron for about two years, last week I found a new one at a good price. Over the weekend I made a batch of pizzelles. Since this is a non-stick version of a pizzelle iron, I couldn’t use a fork to remove the finished pizzelle as I did with my old iron. What could I use that wouldn’t melt or scratch the surface? I came up with the idea to pop off the sponge portion of a disposable brush and sharpen the end. Voila! The perfect pizzelle tool.
A few years ago a friend gave me a few of her pizzelles with a twist, a bit of colored sugar in the center. I have tried this and love the results, it adds a bit of pizzazz to an otherwise plain cookie.
The problem is this dries to the iron and is hard to remove. Hmmm…another tool from my arts and crafts box. When the iron is cool the dried sugar and any leftover dough brushes off easily with an inexpensive bristle brush.
Did I say I LOVE PIZZELLES? Yes I do.
