Coffee-Kissed Pizzelle
Last year the Enthusiastic Kichen Elf's godparents gave him a pizzelle maker for Christmas. I groaned inwardly when he opened it - another kitchen tool to take up cabinet space, another kitchen tool that only has one purpose, another...[imagine much grumbling]. But D loves making them! I don't care for sweets too much, but these cookies are amazing...and simple. Perfect!

He has made many different versions, but this one uses the coffee extract I received from Nielsen-Massey as a sponsor gift for #ChristmasCookies Week.


Ingredients
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1 t pure coffee extract (prefer Nielsen-Massey)
  • 1 t pure almond extract
  • 1 3/4 C flour
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 C melted butter
  • zest from 1 organic lemon
  • oil for greasing the pizzelle maker (he used a non-aerosol grapeseed oil spray)

Procedure
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, coffee and almond extracts until well combined. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour  and baking powder.

Add the melted butter to the egg mixture. Then, with a wooden spoon, fold in the flour mixture and the lemon zest. The batter will be thick.

Heat your pizzelle iron. Lightly grease with oil. Cook the pizzelle according to the instructions that came with your iron. D's suggested 1 to 2 t of batter per pizzelle.


The pizzelle cook rapidly, browning in about a minute or two. D used a setting between 3 and 4 on his machine. Remove the pizzelle from the iron, and cool. As the pizzelle cool, they will harden. 


Repeat till all the batter is gone. You can use a pair of kitchen shears to trim any ragged edges. Or leave them rustic.


He served them with small bowls of coffee-scented whipped cream. Oh. My. Goodness.
