Pizelles (Italian Waffle Cookies):
You need a pizelle maker in order to make this recipe.

6 large eggs, beaten
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup margarine, melted (not butter)
1/2 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla, to taste
1 teaspoon almond extract, to taste (optional)
3 Tablespoons anise extract (one whole 1 ounce bottle)
4 cups all-purpose white flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
powdered sugar, to dust cookies (optional)

Prepare pizelle iron according to manufacturers instructions.

Beat eggs well with sugar, then blend in the slightly cooled melted margarine. Add oil, extracts, baking powder and flour (add this 1 cup at a time, mixing in slowly). Pour small ladlefuls of batter onto your heated pizelle iron and cook for just 30 seconds to 1 minute or according to the directions on your pizelle iron. They will be lightly golden when cooked, but still soft. Remove quickly with tongs to a cooling rack. As the next cookie is baking, the first cookie will cool and get crisp. Dust both sides with powdered sugar and move to a plate.

Serve with coffee.
