In Greek Lithy, means a heavy, deep state of forgetfulness.
With this drink, Lithy is meant to work as "a magic potion to help you untangle your mind, forgive and forget the dark side of the past, then move forward to a new beginning."
I used to have this at The Sanctuary in Chinook, WA. The owner and chef was of Norwegian descent, and with all the elegant dishes I had there, this simple dessert was what I remember most. She always served these upright in wine glasses. Time does not include preparing the Krumkake cones.
The same day I found out that ZWT3 would be going to Scandinavia my friend Donna served these at Bible study. The are a thin, rich sugar cookie. The Swedish vanilla sugar is an unusual ingredient that may take some hunting to find. Lyle's golden syrup is available at many grocers.
