Happy Holidays!

For our traditional "Goodie Making Day" this year we made coconut clusters, peppermint bark, chocolate lollis and our favorite fun new goodie - Pizzelles. Our friend brought her Pizzelle maker and we turned out dozens of the pretty sugar cookies.

Here is the recipe we used:

6 eggs
1 cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla or anise extract (pure)
4 cups all purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups sugar

1. Beat the eggs until smooth. Melt the butter in the microwave or in a small saucepan on low heat.
2. Allow the butter to cool briefly while you blend and mix the sugar and vanilla or anise extract into the eggs.
3. Add the melted butter into the mix, sift the flour and baking powder onto the mix and blend vigorously to ensure uniformity.

Happy Holidays!
