Sometimes covered with powdered sugar, or rolled into a cone, it’s a cookie that dates back centuries and is argued to be the oldest Christmas cookie.  It’s a story filled with snakes, forging blacksmiths, and wagon repair.  This is the history of the crispy thin cookie: the pizzelle. Show notes:
This humble combination has been a winter holiday favorite, accompanying other delicacies on tables for centuries, but always standing out thanks to a delicious combination of ginger, molasses or honey.  It brings forth images of elaborate architectural wonders or little people adorned with gumdrop buttons.  It’s a food that has traveled the world, created guilds, and singlehandedly saved a small town.  For this serving of Season’s Eatings we’re talking about gingerbread.
