 No. 84 Norwegian Krumkaker.

Krumkaker has been around for many many years and is still a favorite around Christmas, but is equally good the rest of the year.  Why do we reserve so many good things just for Christmas?

You need  a special iron to make them on.  It used to be made on a regular cast iron form, but the modern days forms are made with a non-stick surface on the cast iron form, to make them easy to take off and form.  When they are done you need to work fast and wrap them to the form you want, since they cool rather fast and when they are cold, you can not change its form or they will crumble. I guess that is how they got their name.

We have included several recipes for your enjoyment.  We have tried some and they seems to be equally good.  There might be a slight variation in the taste, but otherwise they are all great.

Ingredients and Directions

Cookies

1 c Sugar

4 Eggs

1/2 ts Vanilla

1/2 c Butter

1 1/2 ts Ground cardamom

1 1/4 c All-purpose flour

2 1/2 ts Cornstarch

3 tb Cold water

Using a stationary or hand-held mixer, beat together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla until the mixture is light and airy. Melt the butter and let it cool. Sift the cardamom and flour together. Mix the cornstarch and water until smooth. With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the butter and flour to the sugar-egg mixture. Beat in the cornstarch mixture. Pour a spoonful of batter on a heated krumkaker iron, press it shut, and bake the cookie until golden on each side. Drape around a cone or in a cup until dry. I like to serve these with whipped cream that has cloud berries (multebaer) whipped into it. Realizing that cloud berries are hard to come by, my second choice would be raspberries

4 tbs sugar
2 cups all purpose wheat flour
1/2 quarter heavy whipping cream
2 tbs water

  1. Whip cream and sugar
  2. Add flour and mix. Then, add water
  3. Let the dough rest in a cool place for one hour
  4. Fry the cookies in a krumkake iron
  5. [which is a specialty iron, along the lines of a waffle iron]
  6. Roll the cookies quickly while they are still hot, as shown above.

1 cup cream
5 tbsp cloudberry jam [let's face it, you're not going to find this easy. Try specialty food shops or substitute with your favorite tart berry jam]
1 tbsp cloudberry liqueur [again, try substituting with a favorite berry liqueur]

Filling

  1. Whip cream.
  2. Stir in jam and liqueur
  3. Fill each cookie with approximately 2 tbsp of cream mixture

CARDAMOM CONE-SHAPED WAFERS (KRUMKAKER)

Egg (1 egg makes 9 wafers)
Sugar
Butter or margarine
Flour
Cardamom
   
 
Weight the egg(s) with shell on. To the weight of each egg add the same weight each of sugar, butter, and flour, mixed with a little cardamom. Mix it all together. Heat krumkake iron, ungreased, until a drop of water sputters when sprinkled on its surface. Butter iron slightly for the first two cakes. Place a generous tablespoon of batter in the middle of the iron and close. Bake over medium heat until golden. Remove cake with a fork and immediately roll up into cone or cylinder shape.

Variation: Quickly place krumkake in or over a small dessert cup or bowl and serve as dessert filled with whipped cream and fruit or berries of your choice.
