Snow Covered Yeti's FeetFrom ADMIRAL PEARY INN BED & BREAKFAST
This recipe comes from a deviation on a popular Italian cookie called a Pizzelle which are waffle type cookies made with anise. We flavor our yeti feet with orange and use a cookie cutter to shape them.
Yields 3 dozen
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange liqueur
1 tablespoon baking powder
Zest of 2 oranges, chopped very fine
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups of white baking chocolate
In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, sugar, liqueur, and oil and mix thoroughly. Add the flour, baking powder, and orange zest, and mix well to form a homogenous batter. Set aside at room temperature for 30 minutes. Heat a pizzelle iron until very hot. Pour 2 tablespoons batter onto the iron, close it, and return to heat. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Use a cookie cutter in any shape (we used cutters in the shape of feet!) to cut the cookies as soon as they are removed from the pizzelle iron. Repeat until all the batter is used. Let the cookies cool.
Melt the white chocolate and then dip the 'toes' of the cookies into the chocolate. Let cool and harden on wax paper or parchment paper.
