Cinnamon Sugar Pizzelles

The holidays are almost here… almost, as in a couple weeks away! Don’t panic, take a deep breath… This time of year is seriously my favorite. Good food, great company, and lots to celebrate, including my son’s first birthday! He was born last Christmas Eve and I always joke saying God knew that I love Christmas soooooo much that he gave me the best gift ever last year, and I get to celebrate that amazing blessing year after year and remember just how grateful I am for this little miracle. That also means that the holidays just got a little busier for us, a wonderful kind of busy, though. I want my son to feel special and celebrated too, amongst all the hustle and bustle of the season, so that means Thanksgiving + a birthday party + Christmas all within a months time. Can you feel a tad bit of anxiety in my words?!  Luckily, I love to host and throw get-togethers but that comes with lots of kitchen time. So naturally the answer is pizzelles… wink 

These Cinnamon Sugar Pizzelles were actually a failed attempt at making my cinnamon rolls. I doubled the recipe and the dough just didn’t work out… so I had the bright idea of thinning out the dough and making pizzelles. My dad just gave me his pizzelle maker and I’ve been dying to try some for quite some time. I was so excited and pleasantly surprised with how these turned out! The other amazing thing is you can make a lot of pizzelles from one batch of batter and they are super quick and easy to make. They make a great dessert item for those holiday parties.

This week I also celebrated the launch of Hearth & Hand! Who else pretty much ran out to Target to check it out?! Joanna, girl, you rock! The kitchen towel in these photos is from her new line and I’m totally obsessed. I’m asking Santa for her stoneware dishes this year, so if you know him, put in a good word for me 🙂 #ivebeengoodthisyear
