Lemon Pizzelles

One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.

This post is sponsored in conjunction with SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

To take them completely over the top, I filled them with a lemon buttercream and blueberry preserves.  They'd also be fantastic with strawberry or raspberry preserves or even fresh fruit.  Just be aware that once they are filled the clock starts ticking, you need to eat them that day or they will get soggy.

  1. Beat eggs, adding sugar gradually. Beat until smooth.
  2. Add cooled, melted butter and lemon extract.
  3. Sift flour and baking powder, add to egg mixture. Mix until smooth.
  4. The batter will be sticky, but can be dropped onto iron by spoonful. Cook according to your pizzelle iron's instructions.
For the buttercream (if desired):
  1. In a large bowl, beat butter until creamy. Beat in the confectioners' sugar, lemon extract and enough milk to achieve desired consistency.
  2.  Spread one pizzelle with blueberry preserves, pipe lemon buttercream frosting on another and sandwich them together.
