One of my favorite holiday traditions over recent years is getting together with my parents just before Christmas and making pizzelles. (Pizzelles are perfect neighbor/friend gifts!) These were a staple growing up. They are another “grandma” tradition… However, back in the day, rather than sharing them like a good neighbor, I ate them all… I’d actually still prefer to eat them all, but I’m trying to learn to share. It’s a work in progress:)
If you happen to spot one of these crazy looking irons hidden in a grandma/aunt/cousin’s closet/attic/basement… grab it! I mean, ask before you steal it, but make sure it doesn’t get lost. They are gems! If you’re a new-bee, you can find them at stores including Amazon (does anyone else buy half their life on Amazon? Just me?). Make sure it’s a good quality iron… the more worn-in, the better!
