"All I can say is "WOW". Could hardly believe it when I saw the box on the front porch yesterday. It was amazing since I'd only finalized the order 24 hrs. earlier. I just want to say thanks for your prompt service and I can't wait to use it. I know I'll love it and will make many krumkaka batches before and during the holidays."
Make Lacy Krumkake Cookies for Any Time of the Year
You can Make these Delicate, Delicious Scandinavian Cookies
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.

Suggestions from Lorraine in Rochester, Minn.
Lorraine from Rochester, Minnesota is in her 80's and going strong. "I'm 101% Norwegian," she said. She makes many krumkake for the holidays and other times of the year. In fact, she has to make so many because her son can eat eight at a time!
Storing your krumkake
Lorraine's krumkake stay crispy for a long time, because she stores them in either a paper box or a metal cake pan with a lightweight plastic cover. She discourages us from storing our krumkake in sealed-up plastic containers. That tends to make them moist and lose their crispness.
Party table presentation
Lorraine fills a beautiful krumkake with whipped cream, places it in a champagne flute glass, and adds a cherry to the top for color. This makes for a stunning presentation for a party table any time of year.
New way to roll up your krumkake
Lorraine has an old broom handle that she's scrubbed up and uses for a cone roller for the krumkake. She diverges from the traditional cone-shaped krumkake, because, she says, they store better when the roll is even across the krumkake rather than wider on one end than the other. Makes sense, Lorraine. Unfortunately, LefseStore.com doesn't sell old broom handles......
