Both the Norwegians and Swedes make krumkake, the thin, crisp cookie that is baked in a special krumkake iron. The iron in heated on top of the range on a burner and looks something like a waffle iron without deep grids. Krumkake irons usually have a fancy swirled design that imprints on the cookie. It takes special skill to eat these fragile cookies as well as patience to make them! But it isn’t Christmas without them in a Scandinavian household.
