Pizzelle originate from the Abruzzo region of Italy and have been around since Roman times. This flat and thin waffle was usually reserved for special holidays and weddings. I should know, because my mom would literally make a hundred at a time and even more when it was time to contribute to the sweet table at someone's special event like you guessed it, a wedding or shower. The following recipe is my attempt at interpreting her original recipe with universal measurements and less gargantuan proportions. My recipe, much to mom's dismay, didn't produce the thinner version in which she takes so much pride. Regardless, you will not have any problem polishing off these beauties, especially when every Italian's favourite spread, Nutella, is sandwiched between two crispy Pizzelle.
