This is my great-grandmother's recipe, I learned how to make them from my grandmother. We only made them at Christmas or for weddings and graduation parties.


  • 1 dozen eggs, room temp
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 6-61/2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup melted Crisco
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 oranges, rind and juice
  • 3 lemons, rind and juice
  • 1 T Anise oil
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla


  • Whisk eggs, baking powder, orange and lemon juice and rind, anise oil, and vanilla.
  • Add cooled Crisco and oil.
  • Gradually add flour, mix well.
  • Dough should be soft.
  • Have pizzelle iron heating while you are mixing the dough. The first few pizzelles may stick, but once the iron is ready they will not stick.
  • Cool on a wire rack. They can be stored in an air tight can or wrapped in wax paper and kept in a cool dry place
