Pizelle = Bricelet??

So I've had a craving for pizelles for a while now (they are thin wafer cookies made in an iron similar to a waffle iron). Does anyone know if I can use a bricelet maker to make them? Anything I've found online compares bricelets to a thin waffle, but pizelles aren't waffles at all. I'm wondering if a bricelet maker will make them thin enough.

It is Benichon time in Fribourg at the moment which means that we have these type of bricelets everywhere:

Not sure how they compare to your pizelle, but they are really thin and you can often find the machines to make them at secondhand stores and flea markets.

Re: Pizelle = Bricelet??

In this part of the country we call the thin little cookies Brätzeli. YUM! This is what the iron often looks like and I'm betting it's what you have that you're considering using. I think the Swiss sometimes say they are like thin waffles because of the grid lines, but don't worry - if you do your dough properly you'll get thin, crispy wafers. HTH
