Would make this again.
You can omit the anise entirely or substitute another flavoring like almond, lemon or orange. Dusted lightly with powdered sugar, they are heavenly. 5 stars

Would make this again.
I grew up with these cookies in my house and was taught by mother how to make them--I have an old pizelle iron and how it's stayed alive for 40 years I don't know, but it is. The cookies are a favorite every year and I work at a hospital and all my friends at xmas get these for their xmas present---it makes them look forward to xmas for my cookies----LA 5 stars
