Also, readers should make sure if they make the pizzelles that they pay attention to using the pizzelle maker. I like my pizzelles lightly browned but if you leave them on the pizzelle maker longer, they can get a lot darker. It’s personal preference as to how light or dark you want your pizzelles. I learned that these pizzelles are not only delicious but they are pretty simple to make. I did not have any challenges while making the pizzelles. My mom helped me with getting the right ingredients out of the pantry.
