Cookies and Mystery
3 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 Tbls. vanilla essence or a drop of anise oil
1 c. butter
2 tsp. baking powder
Melt butter on a low heat in a small sauce pan. Beat eggs in a large bowl and add vanilla essence (or drop of anise oil). Add sugar to the egg mixture and beat well. After butter has melted, allow to cool slightly and then add to egg and sugar mixture. Sift in flour and baking powder into the wet mixture, stirring well to ensure all flour is completely mixed. The batter will be stiff. Bake using pizzelle iron. Full batch will make about 60 cookies
You can substitute any extract you want for the vanilla. If using flavored oil just a drop.
