Life is Sweet

This time of year, baking is pretty much a requirement.  So when my husband shared with me a special holiday tradition that his grandma had, I had to try and re-create it.  I am, of course, talking about pizzelle (pee-zell-ay).  Those wonderfully crispy cookies that smell of anise.  I thought I would share the recipe I used to make them this year as a special treat.  These cookies are traditionally made for Christmas and Easter but can be made at any time. 

3 eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon triple sec (optional)

1-3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

In a large bowl, beat together the eggs and sugar.
Add the butter, vanilla, and triple sec.
Add the flour and baking powder and mix well.
