Krumkake is a traditional Norwegian cookie prepared for Christmas. The cookies have a delicate cardamom flavor and look festive and beautiful plain or filled with whipped cream or other sweets of your choice.
  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • 1½ cups flour
  1. Melt the butter, being careful not to brown it.
  2. Let it cool.
  3. Add the sugar, eggs, vanilla, and cardamom.
  4. Gradually add the flour.
  5. Mix the batter until it is creamy with no lumps.
  6. Place 1 heaping teaspoon of batter in a krumkake press and follow the directions of your press to bake the cookies.
  7. Cookies typically bake in under one minute so the process moves quickly.
