I NEED HELP!! The cookies do not harden for me, they stay soft. Any advice on what I may be doing wrong??? I left them cool on racks and then placed them into tightly covered containers, why aren't they getting hard for me?? Someone please help me with this, have ruined so many batches of these already! - 30 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The batter is delicious, but I can't get them to crisp up. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? I'm following the recipe, and cooking them to a golden brown, but they stay soft. Help! - 21 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is the pizzelle recipe that my family has used for years! I'm glad to see it here! I do use melted butter instead of margarine, but otherwise make mine exactly as written in this recipe. These are light and delicious! Make sure to sift the flour and baking powder together before adding - it makes the pizzelles lighter. - 20 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
