Classic pizzelle cookies are beautiful, delicious treats made in a pizzelle press. They are light, crisp, and imprinted with amazing designs!
Place eggs and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat on low speed, using a hand mixer, until combined/slightly thickened. Add melted (but cooled) butter and vanilla to bowl; mix only until just combined (about 15 seconds).
In a large separate bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder. Add to egg/sugar mixture. Mix only until combined. Do NOT overmix.
Preheat pizzelle press (lid closed) following manufacturer's instructions. Once preheated, place about a Tablespoon of batter onto the center of each circle. Follow instructions for your appliance as to quantity of batter to add. Cook for time specified for your particular appliance (usually a couple minutes). When done, remove cookies immediately from machine. Bring machine back to heat before continuing to cook remaining cookies.
When you take cookies off the press, place them on a wire rack to cool. If there are any extra bits of cookie around the edges, use kitchen scissors or a knife to remove them while still warm. As cookies cool, they will become crisp. Enjoy!
