Ukrainians do not tend to follow recipes exactly, preferring to uniquely customize recipes according to personal taste, preference and mood.

Christine Morgan's “interpretation” of Ukranian Pizzelles 

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups flour
2-3 teaspoons baking powder
3 large eggs
1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup purified sweet butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons whole anise seed
1/2 teaspoon anise extract
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch kosher salt
