My theme – I have selected a cookie for each day and a book that begins with the letter of the day. I also added a few fun facts about the cookie and/or its ingredients.

pizzelle only uses one tablespoon of mix so you can eat a ton of them and not feel guilty. Well, not a ton, but a lot more than one. You do need a pizzelle iron to make these, you can find many varieties on Amazon, at Bed Bath & Beyond, and local Italian groceries.
In some parts of Italy, the pizzelle irons would be made with family crests on them which would be passed down to each generation.
