Pizzelle cookies come from the Abruzzo region of Italy. They are formed by putting cookie dough into a metal pizzelle maker, which resembles a waffle iron, and then pressing a decorative snowflake shape into the flattened cookie. Depending on the recipe used, pizzelle cookies can be thin and crisp or soft and chewy. Often they are served with a sweet filling between two cookies or by rolling warm cookies into the shape of cannoli shells using a dowel or rolling pin.
Pizzelle cookies are a popular and traditional Italian dessert for Christmas and Easter.
