Orange Pizzelles

These Italian cookies are nice, crisp wafers that you can leave flat or roll up to use as a cannoli shell.  I flavored them with orange zest and extract.  Originally I was going to do lemon but I wanted to try orange for a change.  




Orange Pizzelles

3 large eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 tsp orange zest
1/2 tsp orange extract
2 tsp baking powder
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp Orange liqueur (optional)

Beat eggs until they are light.  Add in sugar, melted butter, orange zest and extract.  Fold in dry ingredients.  Drop by teaspoonfuls into the center of your heated pizzelle maker.  Close the lid for about 30 seconds.  Carefully remove the pizzelle and place on a wire rack.
