Week 34: Krumkake (North Dakota)

Krumkakes are similar to a pizzelle and are rolled up into cones. They can be eaten filled with cream or berries or served just by themselves.

Krumkakes won this week's poll, with the kuchen coming in second place. Vote for Ohio's state dessert for this week on my home page.

You can use a pizzelle iron or a krumkake iron. Both will work. Krumkakes are really special because they are flavored with cardamom.

Krumkakes are traditionally served for Christmas. They also are eaten along with other cookies like sandbakelse and rosettes for a sweet treat after Christmas Eve.

These cookies make a great way to eat your ice cream. Just roll the krumkakes into a cone shape and fill it with ice cream.

  1. In a large bowl, mix all your ingredients for the cookies, together. Preheat your krumkake iron and pour a tablespoon worth of batter in. Cook until your iron is ready, about 2-3 minutes. You may have to do some trial and error until you find the perfect amount or time for your krumkakes.

  2. Using a krumkake cone, wrap the krumkakes in the you desired shape and fill with the whipped cream if needed.
