Pumpkin Pizzelles

So today is the last day to vote for me to go onto the next round of project food blog! If you want to read my post and vote for me, go here! (update: voting now closed!)


Seriously now, why hadn't I thought of making these before? Earlier this week I received an email from an awesome lady Donna who was looking for a pumpkin pizzelle recipe. She had a recipe but it wasn't working out right, instead of nice and crisp the cookies were coming out a little soft and chewy. I went home that night and started experimenting. The best part is the pumpkin cuts the butter used in half... so not only are there things AMAZING, they are healthier for you. Double bonus!

Pumpkin pizzelles. What a great idea. Being pumpkin, I think I would love them even more than regular pizzelles.

A great autumn twist on this traditional cookie. I wonder if some genius company out there makes pumpkin-patterned pizzelle makers, too.

stephchows said...

Pumpkin makes everything better :)

oo a pumpkin shaped pizzelle maker! LOL there must be one out there!

You just reminded me that I've had a pizzelle maker sitting in my cabinet for at least 5 years and I still haven't taken it out. I'm gonna go find that thing now - there are delicious cookies I could be having! :-)

Hannah said...

Beautiful! Thanks for reminding me, I actually have one of these presses collecting dust in my closet- I should really bust it out and start making pizzelles!
