    About this recipe: Ideally made with a galette or pizzelle iron, these traditional buttery Belgian biscuits can also be made in a Belgian waffle iron; regardless of which iron you use, the ridges will give these sweet heavenly biscuits the lovely golden crunch that they (and you!) deserve.

    Serves: 144 

    • 910g dark brown soft sugar
    • 455g butter
    • 7 eggs
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 810g plain flour

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1min  ›  Ready in:16min 

    1. In a large bowl, stir together the dark brown soft sugar and butter until smooth and creamy; then add eggs and vanilla, and beat well. Gradually stir in flour. Set bowl over a hot water bath, and stir to blend ingredients. Cover, and refrigerate overnight.
    2. Preheat the galette, pizzelle or waffle iron.
    3. Shape dough into 2.5cm balls, and place in the iron. Close the iron and cook the biscuits. This should take about 30 seconds in an electric galette iron, or 2 to 4 minutes in a handheld iron over a medium flame. Carefully remove biscuits and cool on wire racks.
