Pizelle’s (a cream/preserve filled mini waffle)

cream_filled_pizelle
Another cooking class recipe! The beautiful women at my church get together once a month to do a cooking class and we always come away with a full belly, laugher and a new recipe. This time we did pizzelle’s which is sort of like a thin waffle filled with cream and preserves. Think waffle meets cannoli. Pretty yummy, right? I thoughts so too and the proof is in each bite. Enjoy!
