Pizzelle, came from the word, Pizze, which means flat and round in Italian. It is also the meaning of the word, Pizza. Pizzelle were originally made in Ortona, in the Abruzzo region of south-central Italy. [2]


It is made by pouring batter between two plates of snowflake-patterned iron and held over a fire or heated electrically. [3]


Centuries ago, the families would have pizzelle irons specially made with family crests, special dates, or other celebratory designs. [4]


Today It is still common to make Pizzelle Cookies for any celebration in the Abruzzo region and across Italy such as Christmas, Easter, wedding and family gathering.
