I got to use this nifty gadget recently. It's a Pizzelle Iron. It must be 15 years old but it I like its pretty patterns. Different pizzelle makers make other dainty patterns. You don't have to get the most expensive one. The inexpensive versions will work too. I use one made by Magic Maid. It makes crispy pizzelles similar to belgian waffles but thinner and lighter. Pizzelle is one of the oldest Italian cookies. Adding sesame seeds gives it a nutty flavor.
