READY IN: 17mins
YIELD: 2 doz




  • In a medium bowl, cream the sugar with the butter. Beat in the eggs until mixture is light and lemon colored. Beat in the milk and flour until blended and smooth. Let stand 30 minutes.
  • Preheat krumkake iron over medium heat on top of range until a drop of water sizzles when dropped on top.
  • Open iron; lightly brush inside top and bottom with shortening, oil or melted butter. Spoon 1 tablespoon batter onto center of hot iron. Close iron. Bake about 1 minute on each side until cookie is lightly browned. Insert tip of a knife under cookie to remove from iron; roll hot cookie into a cigar or cone shape. Cool on rack. Cookies become crisp as they cool. Repeat with remaining batter. Batter will thicken as you use it; add water a tablespoon at a time as necessary to thin it to the consistency of thick cream. Store baked cookies in airtight containers. You can also keep them frozen for several months.
