Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat. Stir sugar into saucepan until dissolved. Add eggs and coffee liqueur; mix well to combine.

  • Sift flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder together in a large bowl. Stir into butter mixture until well-mixed and batter is stiff.

  • Preheat pizzelle baker according to manufacturer's instructions.

  • Drop spoonfuls of batter onto the preheated pizzelle baker. Bake until browned, about 45 seconds. Remove from baker and trim any ragged edges with scissors.

Cook's Notes:

Pizzelle batter should be stiff enough to be scooped by the spoonful. Add extra flour in step 2, a 1/4 cup at a time, if needed.

Baking pizzelle for 45 seconds yields soft cookies; baking them for 1 minute results in crisp cookies that are starting to brown.
