Let the batter rest for 30 minutes. Heat the pizzelle iron until it is very hot. For each pizzelle, pour 2 tablespoons of batter onto the iron and close the lid. Cook for about 2 minutes or until golden brown.

NPR's version calls for mixing 1 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour and 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder. In another bowl, whisk 2 large eggs with a pinch of salt. When the eggs are foamy, thoroughly whisk in 1/2 cup of sugar. Add 1 tablespoon anisette or 1 teaspoon pure anise extract. Then mix in 3 ounces of unsalted butter, melted and cooled.

Fold in dry ingredients with a rubber scraper. Cook the pizzelles following the manufacturer's instructions.
