These cookies are made with a special galette iron. If you don't have one, try a pizzelle iron. One reader tells us that even a waffle iron works fine. You can also occasionally find them on eBay.
1 lb butter, melted
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla or rum flavoring
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 cups flour
Sift flour and baking powder and mix in rest of ingredients. Chill dough. Drop spoonfuls on a pre-heated iron. Hold over hot stove and bake on each side for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes.
You can find electric galette irons at Amazon.com. They have three different kinds: thin (for thin and crispy cookies), medium, and thick (for thicker cookies with a soft middle).
