I made this last year and am back for more this year. They are great. Just like my mother from Belguim used to make. I have her iron. Thanks again. Richard from Grosse Pte Park, Mich

Very Yummy. I used a pizzelle maker to make the cookies which meant it took a very long time. It helped when I refrigerated the dough to make it more moldable. I flattened the balls into discs.

When we make lukken we speed up the preparation by not rolling small balls of dough. Instead, we roll it into several tubes about 1 inch in diameter and refrigerate wrapped in wax paper. Then you can slice the dough into 1/4 inch circles and fry on the iron.
