littlebiskit:  I think the contraption you are talking about is the same thing I have here at my house.  My dad knew I loved pizzelles and saw, what he assumed to be a pizzelle maker, at a yard sale.  It has the same snowflake design on two round flat metal discs that are hinged with a long metal handle.  I have never tried to make pizzelles on it either because I had no idea what to do with it!  Place it on the stove?  For how long, how much heat?  If you try yours please post Smiley  Thanks!

Is this what you have?  http://i.ehow.com/images/GlobalPhoto/Articles/5290454/314208-main_Full.jpg  Here are some directions!  http://pastrybrush.wordpress.com/2008/09/10/i-finally-used-the-iron/ and a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYxAbLYjjUc

Well, the video is definitely not the style I have, but it was good to see the actual consistency of the batter they used!



ETA:  So I finally dug out my press and the point is moot.  The one I have, first of all, says Product of Norway on it. =0)  So I guess, despite what I was told, it is, in fact, a krumkakke iron, and not for pizzelles.  Oh well!

Hey thanks for posting the links sweets4ever! 

Interesting though....my batter is much thicker than that.  I can't pour it at all.  I have to use a disher to serve it up.  When I place my batter on the iron it'll spread out a little tiny bit out but nothing like this. 

Just goes to show ya all the different variations of the same recipe.   Grin

I guess I always thought Krumkakke recipes had that much thinner batter. You can almost see through the krumkakke. Not really but it's much lighter and airy-er than a pizzelle.

Littlebiskit maybe you'll have to try learning how to make krumkakke instead!   Wink

Any one want to weigh in on this subject?....
Do you pronounce it Piz-El?
Or Piz-Ella?
I've heard it both ways.
How do you say it?
 Grin Huh Grin Huh

Pizzelle is the plural (not pizzelles) and pizzella is the singular.  I never ever use the singular version because I'm always consuming way more than just one. Cheesy

I just made some of these this weekend! Its a tradition my fiances family has. All the ladies in his family get together and have a blast! We made 9 double batches!! We made maple and anise. It was my first time and they came out pretty good!

I am NOT a fan of anise btw! My sweater still smells like it...

Oh and since it was my first time, I only took home 1 tin and I have 2 cookies left... next year im bringing my own tins! Lol!

this thread inspired me to bust out my moms pizzelle maker and make some vanilla cookies. they were so bland! so i added half the amount of anise to the batch, some flavor. i added a little more and it was good. i don't like anise, but that little bit was yummy.

good news! this works with a waffle iron! i tried it today, i used a waffle iron (well really, its our toaster because someone *ahem ahem* bought it thinking its a toaster but it is exactly like this:http://leslievaleska.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/waffle_iron.jpg but with a different interior design) and it worked (word to the wise! do a very thin thin layer, and since its different than a pizzeler you need to spread it out, and flip it occasionally) then i chopped it into little squares! instant sugar cookies (i had no almond extract (well i do, but i cant find it) so it tasted like sugar cookies yum!

festive idea: what about making waffles in the electric pizzelle maker? they might be kind of smooshed thin but it might be really awesome. or my grandmas specialty: "crazy french toast" (french toast cooked in a waffle iron) just some ideas i might play with.
