It used to be: Running through the sprinklers. Reading a book from cover to cover…outdoors. Dripping popsicles and rinsing the juice from your hands under the garden hose. A fresh batch of pizzelle from the neighbors. Feeling the wind through your hair as the boat sailed out of the marina. Picnicking under the canopy of an old oak tree. Running in the dark and catching fireflies in an old jar.

Ah, the simple joys of summer.

Now they are: Gathering with neighbors for a summer block party. A children’s movie projected on a bed sheet over the garage door. A fire pit and s’mores at the ready. A glass of sangria (with lots of fruit). Watching my daughter and son bob in the pool. Dinner on the grill.

What about you? What little things bring you joy each summer?

I’m looking forward to the weekend, where the neighbors will gather at dusk and greet the stars as they appear. There will be bites and glasses of wine, and s’mores for the kids. It’s those little things that bring happiness, and it’s always fun to spend time with friends up and down the block. It seems we’re always zipping in and out of our garages, running to and fro. It will be nice to reconnect.

You know what else spreads some happiness? Nutella Berry Filled Waffle Cookies (Pizzelle). My children were craving cookies over the weekend, when temperatures were approaching the triple digits again. Weary to fire up the oven, I remembered my neighbor, Mrs. B, and her crispy pizzelle that she would make and bring me in the summer. I played with them, rolling them into shapes while still warm, then filled them with some light whipped cream, summer berries, and of course, Nutella. How could I not? If you don’t have a pizzelle maker, don’t worry! I have included the recipe, but you can also use good old store bought waffle cones! It’s a light summer treat that will bring smiles all around.

Nutella Berry Filled Waffle Cookies (Pizzelle)

1 dozen | Prep: 20 minutes | Cook: 20 minutes

If you have the time (and a pizzelle maker), making your own waffle cookies is so much fun, and a treat in the summer since you don't have to fire up the oven. But for a quick and equally satisfying treat, try this with store bought waffle cones and get the kids to help!

Ingredients

For the Nutella Berry Filled Waffle Cookies (Pizzelle):

1 dozen waffle cookies (pizzelle) or waffle cones (see below)
1 cup assorted berries (blueberries, raspberries, sliced strawberries)
whipped cream (see below)
Nutella
powdered sugar

 

For the Pizzelle
(makes about 2 dozen)

3 large eggs, well beaten
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla

 

For Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar

Instructions

For the Waffle Cookies/Pizzelle:

In a large bowl, add and beat the ingredients in the order listed, beating well after each addition. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the enter 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 fork and shape by gently rolling around a cylinder while still hot. Place on a cooling rack to dry.

For the Whipped Cream:

Place Using a mixing bowl and whisk attachment that has been chilled in the freezer, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator until needed.

Assemble the Nutella Berry Filled Waffle Cookies (Pizzelle):

If you wish, place the whipped cream and Nutella into piping bags, otherwise, using a small spoon works just as well. Insert a few berries into the cookie/waffle, then fill with the whiipped cream and Nutella. Garnish with a few more berries on either end. Sprinkle powdered sugar before serving. For maximum cookie crunch, serve immediately.

    I would have thought I had died and gone to heaven, if I was served a cookie of this caliber. Intriguing and not one anyone in their right mind could resist.

    Not going to lie… I want to run through a sprinkler right now.  

    Love love love everything about these cookies. But I’d probably be ok with just spooning some of that filling into my mouth.

    Summer…. You should see the weather here at the moment… Pouring rain for days now. Which I guess makes for a typical summer really but I do love those first summer nights where it is just warm enough to stay out till late and chat with friends in the garden. And eating some of these Nutella filled waffle cookies! They look to die for!

    Liren, these pizelles are GORGEOUS! I have always wanted to make these and now I want to even more. Love the nutella + berries filling. Can’t go wrong. My favorite part about summer are the long, looong nights, bonfires, and late night thunderstorms :)
