Holiday Treats 2!

Day 2 and one of my all time favorites! These are so light and delicious I could eat the whole batch by myself- hence why I want to do 2 batches this year! This is a traditional recipe for our family and also just plain fun to make- takes a bit of practice though! This cookie calls for a special iron to make- you can find them online pretty easily and sometimes in second hand stores or garage sales, but so worth it! And a great family heirloom to pass down to generations (along with the recipe and tradition of making these!).
(krumkake iron)

Krumkake (pronounced Krum-ca-ca) a Norwegian waffle cookie


3 eggs
1/2 cp sugar
1/2 cp cold water
1/2 cp butter, melted and cooled
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cp flour

1. Beat eggs with sugar until light. Add cold water, cooled butter, vanilla and flour. Stir till smooth.

2. Brush the krumkake iron with lightly melted butter. Heat the iron on the range top on medium-high heat.

3. Pour a generous tablespoon of batter on iron. Brown on one side and flip the iron over to brown other side. When the krumkake is evenly brown on both sides, quickly remove from iron and roll into a cylinder shape and place on a paper towel till cool. You can use the tool that comes with the iron or a knife or handle of a wooden spoon- anything that will give you the desired cone affect.

These can be filled with whipped cream or fruit. Or you can leave them plain- this is what I usually do! We have also in the past dipped the openings of the cones in chocolate and let it set.

Makes about 38- give or take since I usually have to play with timing and amount on the iron. Store in an air tight container to maintain crispiness.

Yum! Enjoy!
