Thank goodness that a couple months ago - I found my handhel iron and I'm making my pizzelles as I type this. Doesn't even compare to the electric irons....labor of love to do one st a time while standing over the stove but WORTH it!
I followed the Cuisinart instructions to set the timer on 3-4 for the first two cookies. I found that while they looked done and came off easily, they didn't get crisp on the cooling rack, so I increased the time.
Each batch I increased the time until I had it set for as long as it could go. Still they did not crisp up. I tried leaving them on until no steam escaped and they seemed a bit crisper after cooling, but certainly not crispy.
I am wondering if the humidity of the day has something to do with this?
I ended up trying adding more sugar, but it didn't help.
So my question for everyone is this: Do they ever get really crispy? I have some in my hot oven right now, just to see if they crisp up. Thanks for any advice for this beginner Pizzelle maker!
I know the "waffle: would have to be rolled around a "tool" or a wooden spoon to make the
