you can add flavors to these Pizzelles.. I added a vanilla to one batch and another batch I added a orange flavor... nice light cookie..
. the cannolis' are yummy with the great ricotta cheese... if your diet can take it a little grated darkchcolate sprinkled at the end of the cannoli makes it more traditional.

I don't know .. what is unique about a pizzelle maker it is makes thin cookies and flattens out the whipped eggwhites .. if you try this without a pizzelle maker, it needs to be pretty flat and crisp up on both sides otherwise they may be too soft .... but what the heck all might waste is a few eggs and cream cheese.. let me know if you do make
them...

I doubt if they'd turn out well made with a waffle maker because they'd be too thick, but you could make them in a small pan like a crepe.

I make pizzelles and cannoli every Christmas and Easter, and I'm looking forward to experimenting with this healthier version.
