sweet spin on the classic press cookie
Enjoy this sun-kissed take on the Italian press cookie we know and love. Here I’ve incorporated orange flavor, but it would be just as yummy with lemon or lime flavorings too. For fun presentation, do as we’ve done in the picture – while the cookies are still hot, roll them up to make homemade tiny ice cream cones. Fill them with ice cream, Fresh Whipped Cream, or Easy Chocolate Mousse.
- Yield: 60+ Cookies
- Prep Time: 10 Minutes
- Cook Time: 45 Minutes
- 3 Eggs
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
- 5 Packets of True Orange
- 1/2 Cup Butter, Melted
- 2 Cups Flour
- ¼ Teaspoon Salt
1. Beat eggs slightly with a fork in a large mixing bowl.
2. Using a wooden spoon, mix in the sugar, vanilla, True Orange, and melted butter.
3. Finally, stir in the flour and salt. Preheat your pizzelle iron.
4. Using two spoons, drop about 1 tablespoon of dough onto the center of each iron, close and press the handles down as tightly as possible so that the cookies are very thin. Then, after a few seconds of holding it down, release and let the cookie finish cooking to give them their brownness. It’ll take between 30-60 seconds total for the cookie to cook.
5. To help remove the cookie from underneath the iron, just scrape underneath with a butter knife to loosen. Let the cookies cool on paper towels and store in tins.
- **If you do fill them, just be sure to wait until service and then serve promptly so the cookies don’t become mushy.**
- These cookies store for up to 1 month in an air-tight container, but be careful because they are super fragile.
