A reader needs help locating an Iron

All-This question came from a fan of Pizzelle looking for a specific iron:

"Could you please help me locate a pizzelle iron that has the boot of Italy and the regions of Italy pattern on it? A cousin of mine bought a iron like this years ago at a Trader Horn store. Thank you for your help."

If anybody as any ideas other than EBay, please post them or contact me and I will forward them appropriately.

Happy Holidays and Best Regards,

Krista's question

This is the first time making pizzelle's for Christmas and I was wondering how to store them? Also how long do Pizzelles keep? Can you freeze them?


Pizzelleman's response:


I use a tupperware container and they are generally good for up to a month or so. My Mom squirrels them away and sometimes doesn't find them again for several months. She puts them on a cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for 5 to 10 minutes until you can just start to smell them and they are as good as new (so she reports). You can also use ziploc bags or just produce bags from grocery store tied in a knot. I make and ship so many for the holidays, I use the bags they give me from the grocery store (for an occasional bribe with cookies or apple butter). If anyone else has any suggestions, please feel free to post.

Best Regards,
