Coconut Pizzelles

I know a lot of folks think of Pizzelles as Christmas cookies, but I like to think of them as a quick treat that doesn't require heating up the oven:@) Making Coconut Pizzelles has been on my mind for a while so I whipped up a batch to take to work-very good!
Pin It
Little bottles of different extracts can be found at HomeGoods etc. for about $3, I picked up the coconut one as soon as I saw it! What I'd do differently next time: Toast the shredded coconut, not only to make it more flavorful, but to help dry it out more. Otherwise, this was a very nice cookie! My tip: I share this each time I make Pizzelles, add 3 Tblsp cornstarch to your 1 C measure then top it off with flour, it will help make the Pizzelles light and crisp.

Coconut Pizzelles
3 eggs
3/4 C sugar
1/2 C butter, melted and cooled
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp coconut flavor/extract-you could add up to 1 tsp
1 3/4 C A/P flour-sub 3 Tblsp corn starch
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 C sweetened shredded coconut, toasted and finely chopped-I used the food chopper
  1. Beat eggs and sugar.
  2. Add butter, extracts and coconut, mix well.
  3. Sift in the flour and baking powder, mix well.
  4. Drop by spoonfuls onto heated pizzelle maker and bake according to directions or desired doneness.
Have a happy day:@)

  1. These sound so very tasty. You have very lucky co workers! My husband LOVES coconut cookies. (Can you tell me what CA/P flour is? And you probably meant to say 1/2 tsp "coconut extract".)

    1. Hello! That's 1 and 3/4 cup of all purpose flour:@)

  2. Wow, do these ever look good. I have just recently come to like coconut within the last 5 years. Have you tried the coconut butter in the butter section of the grocery store yet? It is out of this world delicious.

  3. Soooo pretty, perfect to serve with ice cream!

  4. HI Lynn They look gorgeous, certainly good enough to eat. They look like lace-like paper doilies.

  5. I must not have been in a Home Goods in a while - I never knew they had food stuff there! I like to spin the wheel at Marshall's - you never know what you'll find there!

  6. Oh, they're beautiful and look so yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Oh my, Lynn! You think up the best concoctions!! I'll bet your do workers kiss the ground you walk on!! xo

  8. Yummy! I was recently thinking about pizzelles. ;-)

  9. Adorable. We worked at Williams Sonoma one Christmas and that year pizzelle machines were THE thing that year. Love the idea of using coconut.

  10. So pretty!!! These would make such lovely gifts...I may have to head to Williams-Sonoma :)

  11. Would you believe I just BOUGHT a package of pizzelles yesterday? I bet they aren't half as good as yours, Lynn. I am sending a link of this post to the younger sister who has the p. iron. I hope she will try making them soon...and SHARE! LOL
    Thanks for the different flavor idea & the tips. You should like this post to Yvonne's Tutorials, Tips & Tidbits.

  12. Yum! These look so beautiful.

  13. These look great, Lynn. What a good idea to add coconut to your pizzelles. You really are a fantastic cook!

  14. Lynn, These look oh so good, thank heavens I don't have a pizzelle maker :) I love looking at the kitchen/food area at HG, there is great stuff there!

  15. Every single time you or someone in blogland shares a recipe or tip with pizzelles, I say that I'm going get the necessaries to try to make some. I've been saying that for two years now, and really need to put my money where my mouth is.

    Literally, in this case. LOL

  16. These are gorgeous, just gorgeous Lynn! They would make such a nice dessert with a scoop of good ice cream or sorbet, yum!

  17. Hi Lynnie! Oh, these are so pretty and look like snowflakes! I'll bet they're good too.
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,

  20. If I ever get a pizzelle making I know where to come for some delicious recipes!

  21. What a great idea! When my grandbaby allows me more time I'm breaking out my pizzelle maker! I could eat a dozen of these in one sitting ;)

  22. Hi Lynn,
    Your Pizzelles are just beautiful and I would just love the flavor. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome recipe with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great weekend and come back soon!

  23. Every time you pot about them, I say I am going to make them! Haven't done it yet and I have the machine!
    They look delicious!

  24. What beautiful treats! I adore pizzelle! And I have never made coconut ones. Thanks for this!

  25. Have you tried substituting coconut oil for the butter? Would they still have the same consistency? I think it would be healthier and add more coconut flavor. Thinking of trying this, as i just bought to jars of it.


Thanks for stopping by!
