I have been making these Norwegian Christmas cookies for most of my life... they are wonderful! I use an electric krumkake baker that makes two at a time.

This is a must on our cookie list.

They are a thin, delecate cookie... very easy and fun to make, and you will proudly display them on your sweet table and in containers as gifts!

  2. ***You can serve them as is... or make a whipped cream filling, chocolate pudding filling, etc.... but serve right away when you put in a filling.


    ***You can roll them into cone shapes, cylinder shape, little bowls, or leave them flat.


    *** Most people eat them plain, but you can dip an edge in melted chocolate and add sprinkles too.
