You will need a pizzelle iron to make these traditional Italian cookies.
Get the pizzelle iron ready.
Eggs and sugar should be blended together in a medium bowl.
While mixing, add the melted butter, vanilla, and anise extract gradually.
Add the anise seeds, baking powder, and flour.
Add 1/2 cup more flour if you prefer your cookies to be thicker.
Drop tablespoon-sized portions of cookies onto the grid’s center.
Cook with the iron closed until the steaming stops.
Depending on the iron used, this could take 30 to 90 seconds.
