Italian Waffle Cookies

Italian Waffle Cookies, also known as pizzelles, are traditional and popular Italian dessert cookies. They're slightly crunchy waffle-like cookies that you make in special (and inexpensive) pizelle irons. Light and flavorful, these Italian cookies are perfect for large get-togethers and holidays, such as Christmas and Easter. Best of all, they can be easily stored in cookie tins. Don't worry about their shelf life though, because these are sure to be eaten before they even begin to get stale.

One dessert recipe that we think you'll love if you enjoyed making Italian Waffle Cookies is pizzelle. These delicate, lacy cookies are made using a similar batter to waffle cookies, yet are cooked on a special pizzelle iron to create intricate designs. They make a beautiful and delicious addition to any dessert platter.

If you're looking to challenge yourself with a more advanced dessert, we recommend trying your hand at homemade cannoli. While not quite a cookie, these crispy, fried pastry shells filled with a sweetened ricotta cheese mixture are a classic Italian treat that is sure to impress your family and friends.

For a simpler dessert option that still captures that Italian flair, consider making a batch of almond biscotti. These crunchy, twice-baked cookies are perfect for dipping into a cup of coffee or tea, and are a great make-ahead treat for holiday gatherings or special occasions.

No matter which dessert recipe you choose to try next, we hope it brings a little taste of Italy into your kitchen and delights your taste buds. Happy baking!
