Pizzelle Maker Manual & Recipes
Pizzelle are thin wafer-like, crispy Italian cookies made with eggs, sugar, flour,
and usually anise (licorice) flavoring.
"Pizzelle" literally means little pizzas, and named after their shape. In
Italy, pizzelle may also be referred to by names such as ferratelle, nevole,
ciarancelle, cancellette, catarette... and more.
How to Use the Palmer Pizzelle Iron
- It takes approximately 15 minutes for the plates to heat to baking temperature.
- After baking temperature is reached, lightly and thoroughly grease upper and lower grid surfaces, using a pastry brush dipped in solid vegetable shortening.
- Use a spoon to load light batters onto the center of the bottom plates.
- With doughs, roll into balls approximately 1" round, then place them on plates.
- Close lid and clip handles together.
- Allow to cook at least until steaming stops, about 30 seconds.
- Remove with a fork or thin tongs.
- Discard the first 2 pizzelles you cook, as they will have absorbed the excess shortening used to season the plates.
- If you want to shape them into cones or cups, do so right after removing them, while they're still pliable.
- Allow the cooked pizzelles to cool on a wire rack or towels.
- When finished, wipe the plates clean with a paper towel.
Never immerse the unit in water.
- Store the pizzelle maker in its box, in a dry location.
