My grandmother's recipe usually included anise and amaretto. They were super tasty. How an Irish woman picked up Italian tradition I'll never know, but they were a Christmas tradition in our family too. Maybe that's where the Amaretto came in.  Wink (Never a dessert without booze!)

I may just have to keep it alive myself.

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

38 years ago I had a nanny from Sweden named Eva Lodin and I loved Eva more than anyone in the world.  She used to make these as well as lufsa for me and it was such a special time in the kitchen.  She would listen to all of my 5 year old secrets, wishes and silly jokes as we (actually she) cooked.  Eva eventually left to pursue her own dreams and live her own life but I was still to young to understand and in the innocent yet selfish way of all young children, I could not understand why Eva had left ME.  I cried for months.

Thank you so much for posting this and letting me honor such an amazing woman who made an incredible impact in the life of a child.  I just ordered my Pizzella pan from Amazon!

I must speak up in defense of anise!  That's what Christmas always smells of to me, as my mom and I always ends up making batch after batch of pizzelles.   Thanks for sharing the almond recipe, I love collecting different variations.  My aunt sometimes makes them with maple and pecans, which I've never been able to recreate. Perhaps this year...

Also seen as DS=dear son

Hey guys!  Thanks for all the great comments!

Sweets4ever:  You gotta post your Pizzelle making results when you find your iron.  Wink  Try Walmart.  I know I've seen them there. 

BTW:  I've been looking back through the recipe book that came with my iron and there are several mentions of anise.  You know... I think anise is one of those flavors that you either really love or just plain dislike.  I don't know if there is any middle of the road that. 

I have tried the the chocolate pizzelle recipe in the book and that was just like eating Coco Puffs cereal.  Smiley I also tried the Cappuccino Pizzelles.  Those were darn tasty too.  Grin  I can post those recipes if anyone wants them.  Just let me know.

DogGrrl:  Thanks for sharing that wonderful memory about your nanny!  I'm curious...have you ever tried to find Eva again?  Any luck with that? If it's none of my business, so say, but curiosity and the magic of Christmas has my imagination in overdrive!  Grin   And you need to post your Pizzelle making adventures too.  Wink

Mudpuddles:  I'm sorry, I don't know if this will work in a waffle iron.  I mean, maybe it could work but I doubt you'll get the same crisp results.  But who know?  I always say "Nothing ventured, nothing gained!"  Give it a try and see what happens.  What's the worse that can happen?  The worse is that it doesn't turn out and you have to toss the batter out.  There'd be a loss of the money put into the batter, I guess.  But what if you try it and it turns out to be the next best thing?  Then we'd all love you for creating something fabulous!

OMG thank you for posting this!  I LOVE pizzelles!

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!
