Would make this again.
My family from Belgium settled in WV and there were 3 covetted irons in the family. I used one of them for years but the last few years I have been using a regular waffle iron. Don't tell but they come out just as well. 5 stars

I love these cookies. They are my favorite to make. I make them in a waffle iron so I can make 4-6 at a time. They do take time to make but are well worth it! 5 stars

My girlfriend made waffle cookies that were sandwiched with a layer of to-die-for butter cream in the middle. Does anybody have that recipe, or know what I am talking about? 5 stars

Galettes are actually French in origin. My aunt, whose family was from Belgium, introducted them to my mom who now makes them every Christmas on the gas stove with a handmade galette iron and my aunt's recipe. They are fabulous. 5 stars

My Granmother and Grandfather are from Belgium France and she used to make these all the time. After they both died I lost track of who inherited the iron.I would love to have another one, if you are interested in selling the iron I would be most interested in buying is [email protected] 5 stars

Would make this again.
I have had a Galette Iron in the kitchen for 28 years and never bothered to look for a recipe on-line. My wife's family introduced Galettes to me as a teen back in WV. I remember they spent nearly a day making them at Christmas, part of the ritual of the Christmas Season. I'll be making the this year! 5 stars

Would make this again.
as an aside on this recipe - we made these on a gas stove and altho labor intensive, worth every moment

if you make them the right size - Pringles cans make great storage containers and if you decorate them, gift packages.

as of this posting there is a great iron for sale on ebay (not mine I swear) under pizelle cooker
5 stars

  A half-Italian in WV  Sep 5, 2006
Would make this again.
This is the first site I have seen that gives the recipe for the Italian cookies. This is my favorite Christmas cookie of all time and I am glad to see that others know it and love it. My mom makes 5 dozen on her homemade galette iron that heats on the gas stove burner and makes 2 (yes 2) at a time. But even she thinks it is worth the 3 hours! 5 stars
