The end result is scrumptious, light, crumbly cookies that my family loves!! As a tradition, we pack the cookies in a shoebox... because that's how my great grandmother always gave them to us. Thanks for the chance to share my great grandma's (Margit Edin) recipe.
- 3/4 cups butter (don't use margerine)
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1-1/2 cups flour
1 Cream the butter and sugar together.
2 In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Add to creamed butter/sugar mixture and mix well. In a separate bowl, sift flour and baking powder together Slowly add dry ingredients to egg/butter/sugar mixture and mix well.
3 Heat Krumkake iron and use a little butter to prep. Drop a heaping teaspoon full of cookie dough just off centre (toward the back) in each design circle on the iron. Close the iron and let cook until the cookies are golden - about 2 minutes. You can peek a couple times to check on them if you'd like.
4 Once done remove one at a time by sliding a knife under the cookie and transfering to a paper towel. Quickly roll into a cylinder. I don't use a wooden form, but they are available if you don't want to use only your fingers (it can be hot!).
5 Let the cookies fully cool and then enjoy!
Yummy Variation: Melt your favourite chocolate and dip an end of each cookie in. Let chocolate cool and harden. Devour!
