Breakfast Pizzelles

For the perfect Christmas breakfast, start with making a batch of pizzelle. The great thing about pizzelle is that you can make them the day before, or that morning, and they will still taste great. Now, you may be asking yourself, what are pizzelle. Pizzelle are a type of cookie that originated in Italy and is traditionally made for weddings, Christmas, or Easter and has a similar taste to the delicious waffle cone. Plus, it gives you an excuse to eat cookies for breakfast.

  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder



In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs and granulate sugar, until they are thick and well mixed. Stir in the vanilla and melted butter. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and the baking powder, then add to the rest of the ingredients and beat until you have a smooth batter.


Turn on the pizzelle press so it can begin to heat. It helps to brush the press with oil or melted butter to prevent the batter from sticking. Drop about 1 tablespoon of batter onto the heated press and bake for about 20-50 seconds. Some people prefer a softer pizzella and some prefer a crisper bite to their pizzella. It's a good idea to experiment with a couple until you find the texture you like best!


We created a pizzelle bar by placing different toppings into ramekins with individual spreaders, allowing everyone to top their pizzelle as they wish. Toppings we used Greek Yogurt or Mascarpone Poppy seeds Blue berries Pomegranate Lemon curd
