Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
If you are just purchasing your first pizelle iron I highly recommend not getting one with a Teflon base. The silver face plate electric irons are the best. They usually look like a waffle iron. Make sure it is heavy. If you don't have Teflon the cookies won't stick because of the shortening and butter in the recipe. Makes 14 dozen.
