I am 100% Norwegian, these are very good, it takes some skill, and practice to perfect the frying of these cookies, I don't think there is a bad krumkake recipe out there:) I look forward to making these each year.

  2. Beat in the eggs until the mixture is light and lemon colored.
  3. Beat in the milk and flour until blended and smooth.
  4. Let stand 30 minutes.

  6. Open the iron, coat lightly with nonstick spray.
  7. Spoon 1 T batter onto center of the hot iron.
  8. Close iron.
  9. Bake about 1 minute on each side until the cookie is lightly browned.
  10. Insert the tip of a knife under the cookie to remove from the iron; roll the hot cookie into a cigar or cone shape.
