Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Pizzelle is known to be one of the oldest cookies. They were originally made in the Abruzzo region of Italy and were often proudly embossed with the family crest or some hint of the village of origin. Pizzelle's are used to celebrate any holiday or festive occasion. You can use unsalted butter in place of margarine. You can also fold and pinch in the middle to use a filling.
