Pizzelle cookies are my absolute favorite kind Christmas cookie. They remind me of Sunday morning waffles , but in cookie form. They’re thin and crispy, and I think it would be entirely possible for me to sit down and eat an entire batch. They’re one of those things that you don’t realize how many you’ve eaten until they’re all gone. They’re that good.
For some reason, I thought Pizzelles were going to be hard to recreate gluten-free. They weren’t. They were easy-peasy and came out perfectly. These gluten-free pizzelle cookies even rival the ones my mom makes at home. Just like hers, my gluten-free pizzelles are light and flavorful, but with an added crunch from the quinoa.
With my week-long celebration of Quinoa Christmas Cookies coming to an end, I have to say this is my favorite recipe yet. As I’m typing this I’m munching on my final two cookies (yes, I did ration them out to make sure they would last all week). So, what’s next for me? More gluten-free pizzelle cookies of course!
