Directions
1.
In a medium mixing bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and cardamom; set aside. In a small mixing bowl beat the eggs with an electric mixer on high speed about 4 minutes or until thick and lemon-colored. Using medium speed, gradually beat in the sugar.
2.
Beat in the cooled butter and the vanilla. Add flour mixture; beat on low speed until combined.
3.
Heat electric pizzelle iron according to manufacturers directions. (Or, heat pizzelle iron on range top over medium heat until a drop of water sizzles on the grid. Reduce heat to medium-low.)
4.
For each pizzelle, place a slightly rounded tablespoon of batter on pizzelle iron, slightly off-center toward back of grid. Close lid. Bake according to manufacturers directions. (For a nonelectric iron, bake about 2 minutes or until golden brown, turning once.) Turn pizzelles out onto a paper towel to cool. Repeat with remaining batter. Makes 18 pizzelles.

Cannoli Cupcakes

Just as yummy as cannoli purchased in an Italian bakery (but much easier to make), these sweet, tender cupcakes are topped with a frosting made with ricotta cheese. The choice between whole milk ricotta and skim milk ricotta is yours to make; the frosting is delicious when made with either product.
