Pizzelles are most definitely one of my favorite cookies, whether it's Christmas or any other season. They can vary when you buy them at a store or bakery, but when I make them they are always going to be anise flavor - delicious. Out of the Christmas cookies I baked/painted this year, this was the most challenging cookie to paint in 20 minutes! All those little waffle-y crevices, the intricate flower pattern, the irregular "deckled" edges, its thin, wafery goodness... I might have to try painting one again. Of course, it will be a different pizzelle, because I ate the subject of this painting once the timer went off. Watercolor, 5 1/2" x 7".
