These are the type of cookies my Papa in MI loves. Not too sweet, and with just a hint of anise flavoring. Since I couldn't be there with him this Christmas, I thought I'd send him a bit of love. Along with these cookies I sent him hazelnut biscotti (without the chocolate paint), sugar cookies, and apricot jelly. I'm hoping he'll be here soon after Christmas, because I really do miss him.
I came across this recipe, and I knew it was sure to please my father. It seemed authentic, and full of love and family, I just had to use it. Plus, I am in love with Food Blogga's blog.
I have a toastmaster pizzelle maker that I bought for my mother and myself a while back. I have only used it a handful of times, so I was pleased to see that Susan of Food Blogga gave it her approval, and excited to dust it off and start the pizzelle making process.

**I found flattening them a bit, rather than leaving them in balls made them more consistent**
