ok, my grandmother and I spent yesterday baking. However it did not turn out to be the Guandis
Neither of us thought ahead enough to make the dough the night before and put it in the fridge. The dough is extremely difficult as it is to work with but having it not chilled overnight made it impossible. I started losing patience and decided to scrap the Guandis until another day that way I could spend the day with her doing something enjoyable rather than aggravating. So we made about 200 Pizzelles instead!
We made almond, vanilla, and lemon. DH (as it turns out) *loves* anise so I am going to make him a batch of those (I didn't make any yesterday because I detest anise flavoring).
So that what we have. The recipe for the Guandis, though, looks to be right because we fried up a piece of it just to taste it and it tasted right on!
