I have trouble purchasing a gadget that only has one function.  It seems like it takes up a ton of room and you only use it every couple of months.  That goes for panini makers, rice cookers, and tortilla warmers.  I’m not talking about a coffee maker (which I use every day), a slow cooker (which cooks everything), or a garlic press (because we use garlic daily).

One of these gadgets is the pizzelle maker.   It makes one type of cookie and usually it’s a cookie that’s only made at the holidays.  While I like pizzelle’s as much as the next person I have no use for a maker.   I borrowed my mom’s over the holidays and I made precisely one batch of them.  I don’t like the anise flavor and usually just go with plain old vanilla.  They are pretty and I love them on cookie trays or at weddings.

So why am I telling you all of this?    Because I like to find more uses for these single function gadgets.   If I can find multiple uses then I have a better excuse for buying them.   Since pizzelles are mostly a holiday cookie I set off to find a way to use them in the summer.   My idea became the pizzelle sundae.

Using small bowls helps to create the base for these delicious Pizzelle Sundaes!

I used the pizzelle maker to make the cookies then took them out and immediately draped them over top of bowls.  When they hardened they shaped into a solid bowl.   It was pretty awesome because it was very similar to a waffle cone only it was a bowl shape.  I put some ice cream in it, topped it off, and I had an edible bowl!
