These thin crispy cookies are traditionally flavored wit' vanilla, almond, or anise & coated wit' powdered sugar. This delicious recipe comes wit' inspiration to my Aunt Barbara, from which I learned to make Pizzelles. She is my Grandma Annette's sister, & she is one of the women that inspired my cooking styles & techniques.

Every Christmas Eve out family gathers in the city to come together, celebrate another year together, get a visit from Santa Claus, & eat, & eat, & eat! On the dessert table there's a plethora of chocolate chip cookies, struffoli, crispy marshmallow treats, rosettes, et cetera. But one of the things I look forward to every year are sweet almond or anise Pizzelle cookies dusted generously wit' powdered sugar. The snowflake designs adorn these crispy buttery delicacies to give little pockets where powdered sugar hides, but also to give more surface area to make these cookies crisper!

You can watch the video of Chicago Johnny's Pizzelle Cookies & then download a copy to print & add to your cookie file, or even hang on your fridge as a constant reminder to make these delicious treats!

You will need a Pizzelle iron to make these cookies & you will also need:

• 3 large eggs
• 1 1/2 stick butter (I prefer Challenge brand)
• 1/2 cup canola oil
• EITHER 1 tbl vanilla extract OR 2 tea almond extract OR 2 tea anise extract
• 1 cup cane or organic sugar
• 2 tea aluminum free baking powder
• Pinch sea salt
• 1 1/4 cup whole wheat or unbleached flour
