Limoncello Pizzelle

Spread the love

Pizzelle are on every Italians Christmas table. My family comes from the Amalfi Coast so I had to make a Limoncello flavored one! These are so crisp and bright with the lemon zest, I know you will love this variation, especially if you love lemon flavored desserts.
