July 2005
These tasty cones are perfect for the five-herb ice milk, but they also liven up plain old vanilla ice cream. Instead of forming the pizzelle into cones, you can serve them flat, like cookies.
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus additional for buttering pizzelle maker
  • Special equipment:

    an electric pizzelle maker; a 5 1/2-inch cone-shaped pizzelle mold
  • Whisk together all ingredients except additional butter in a bowl until smooth. Chill batter, covered, 1 hour.
  • Heat pizzelle maker and lightly brush top and bottom of pizzelle molds with butter. Pour 1 tablespoon batter into bottom of each pizzelle mold. Close cover and cook batter until golden, about 2 minutes.
  • Working quickly (pizzelle are pliable only while hot), peel off 1 pizzella and wrap around cone mold, overlapping ends, and pinching tip closed. Hold cone in place until it hardens, about 5 seconds, then slip off mold and repeat with remaining pizzelle. Make more pizzelle and cones in same manner.
