Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract. 

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own.

I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.  

They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli. 

You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the fridge.

You can also place them down inside ramekins and let them cool there for perfect little edible bowls.  If you don't have ramekins, you can use a muffin tin. 

Drop in a scoop of ice cream, then add your favorite toppings and serve immediately. Some melted strawberry jam or chocolate sauce is delicious!

Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal


  • For the pizzelle:
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 pound butter
  • 1 1/2 cups Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons Strawberry Extract
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • Red food coloring (optional)
  • For the fauxnoli:
  • Vanilla buttercream (optional)
  • 1/2c butter, softened
  • 4 1/2c Dixie Crystals confectioner's sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons milk
  • Chocolate Sprinkles or mini chocolate chips, if desired


  1. Beat eggs, adding sugar gradually. Beat until smooth. Add cooled, melted margarine and vanilla.
  2. Sift flour and baking powder, add to egg mixture. Mix until smooth. The batter will be sticky, but can be dropped onto iron by spoonful.
  3. Heat pizzelle iron and cook according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  4. Carefully using a butter knife, move the pizzelle to cooling racks or double layers of paper towels. Continue with the rest of the batter.
  5. For the Fauxnoli:
  6. Remove pizzelle from iron and wrap around a dowel or cannoli form. Let cool seam side down.
  7. Make the butter cream. In a large bowl, beat butter until creamy. Beat in the confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and enough milk to achieve desired consistency.
  8. Pipe buttercream frosting into the fauxnoli tubes. Dip ends into chocolate chips or sprinkles. Serve immediately.

Pizzelles were a part of my childhood, making them with my dad several times a year. Such fond memories! I must get another pizzelle maker and start making them again. I love the strawberry!!

I have tried vanilla and chocolate pizzelles, but never strawberry ones.
I’ll have to go borrow my parents pizzelle maker sometime and make these. J

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!
