  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • ½ cups of melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa
  • ½ teaspoons of black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder leveled
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 1-3/4 cups of sifted flour
Stir together the eggs, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla first in your mixing bowl until well combined. Add the sifted flour, cinnamon, pepper, cloves, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt. Beat these ingredients with a large spoon or a whisk to incorporate. Heat your lightly greased pizzelle maker until ready. Spoon a heaping teaspoon of batter into the center of each pizzelle, close and cook for about two minutes or until the pizzelle light signals the cookie is done. Remove gently with a fork and place on a place. Repeat with another batch until you exhaust your pizzelle batter. As they cool, the pizzelles harden. ENJOY!
