  • These Almond Pizzelles can burn easily so when they are barely starting to golden, they are done.
  • The batter may absorb flavoring, it took a few tries for us to get the amount of Almond right but you may want a bit less. We have found this to be just right but not too much.
  • If you shape them do so very quickly after taking them off the press as they cool to crispy very quickly.
  • Sprinkle some powdered sugar for extra sweet when serving.
