Pizzelles with a Sweet FillingL'ANTRO DELL'ALCHIMISTA
Pizelle are traditional Italian cookies that get their trademark waffle-like shape from a pizelle maker, and there's really no getting around that. Look for one at specialty shops and houseware stores. The cookies are typically just sprinkled with powdered sugar, but here they are layered, sandwich style, with an incredibly delicious filling made from jam, rum, nuts, cocoa powder, and brewed coffee--meaning they are special enough for a holiday dessert table.
- 6 eggs
- 8 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- 10 Tbsp. flour
- 8 Tbsp. sugar
- grated lemon peel
- 1 jar sour cherry (or cherry jam)
- 1 oz. rum
- hazelnuts (or almonds, toasted and finely chopped)
- 6 cookies (ground)
- 3 Tbsp. cocoa (powdered)
- 3 Tbsp. coffee (strong)
- Combine the eggs, oil, flour, sugar, and grated lemon peel; the mixture should be neither too soft nor too firm. If the mixture is too firm, add a few tablespoons of milk.
- Place a spoonful of batter in the pizzelle maker. Repeat this procedure until the batter has been completely used.
- Combine the jam, rum, a handful of hazelnuts or almonds, cookies, cocoa, and coffee.
- Spread a generous amount of filling on one pizzelle and top it with another pizzelle. Repeat this procedure with all the pizzelles and serve.
