  • Heat iron over medium heat, and brush lightly with oil, or spray with nonstick spray away from heat. Place a heaping tablespoon of batter on iron a third of the way in from the hinge. Close iron, and press tightly together. Scrape away excess batter with a knife. Cook one side for 45 seconds, then flip iron and cook another 45 seconds, or until golden. Adjust heat as necessary. Open iron, and remove waffle with a fork or a thin spatula. Quickly roll hot waffle into a cone shape. Repeat process with remaining batter. Let cones cool; store in an airtight container.

Cook's Notes

To make the cones you will need a pizzelle iron, available at kitchenware stores.
