The traditional Italian waffle cookie gets a red velvet twist in this Red Velvet Pizzelle, perfect for sharing with that special someone!

Ingredients (for 24 cookies):
3 large eggs well beaten – 3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter melted – 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder – 2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons beet powder or red food colorinIn a large bowl, add and beat the ingredients in the order listed, beating well after each addition. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the center of the preheated pizzelle maker, about 2 tablespoons. It takes a little practice, but sometimes you have to drop the batter just a bit higher than the center, to allow for the waffle press.
Close the lid and cook until the steaming stops, about 60 seconds. Remove the cookie with a spatula or fork and place on a cooling rack to cool.
