One of the joys of being married into a family of Lutheran Norwegians, is the holiday expectation of Krumkake. I received an iron as part of a wedding present and knew I didn’t have a chance, lol!
EVERY Holiday we make it — sometimes plain, sometimes dusted with sugar, sometimes chocolate… it depends what I think our holiday cookie plate needs.
- ½ c butter
- 4 eggs
- 1 c sugar
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 1 ½ c flour
- 2 Tbsp cornstarch
Melt butter and cool slightly. In your mixer, beat eggs on medium speed for 1 minute. Add sugar; beat about 3 minutes or till sugar is almost dissolved. Stir the cooled butter and vanilla into egg mixture. In a separate bowl, combine flour and cornstarch. Add flour mixture to egg mixture. Stir just till smooth. Drop by spoonful onto hot Krumkake iron…if yours is electric, like mine, just wait for your red light. Remove carefully and QUICKLY roll around the cone – let it set until you fill the iron again. Dust them with powdered sugar. Makes about 3 dozen.
