You can Make these Delicate, Delicious Scandinavian Cookies
Sorry! We're sold out of the electric krumkake baker until mid-January.
The delicate, lacy Scandinavian cookies known as "krumkake" are a must-have at any Norwegian holiday celebration. They are made using a light batter poured on a special hot griddle known as a krumkake iron or krumkake baker. These bakers have special engravings on the metal that give krumkake their distinctive patterns. The small round cookies are then shaped around a cone and cooled into their flute shape.
Making krumkake is even more fun when two people make krumkake together. One bakes the round cookies, and the other shapes the hot cookies around the cone. Once slightly cooled, the krumkake are slid off the cone and placed on a paper towel to cool. Lefse often serves as the bread for the meal while krumkake is a cookie or dessert at the end. Krumkake are lovely filled with whipped cream and berries, jam and whipped cream, or just plain. You can make them anytime of the year using your special krumkake iron.
Suggestion: Your krumkake bakers come with one cone roller. Consider buying an extra cone roller with the nonstick electric baker so you can keep up with the process of making two krumkake at a time.
We do not recommend using the stove-top krumkake iron on flat-top or ceramic cooktops. You must be careful not to scratch or damage the cooktop. Most customers use the stove-top krumkake iron only on an electric coil or gas stovetop.
