Special cookies

There is a Norwegian cookie called krumkaga (translated crumb cookie) that is cooked on a iron similar to a waffle maker only the peices are flat with a lacy design, the batter is a little thinner than pancake batter and similar but whipping cream (un whipped) and cardamom for spice. When each cookie is cooked they are rolled and cooled. This time, I am going to use the form that makes them into a cone shape. I will add vanilla beans and pumpkin pie seasoning to stiff whipped cream and fill the cones and sprinkle with fresh grated nutmeg for dessert.

I LOVE krumkaga!! Every year for Christmas dinner my MIL brings krumkaga and lefse (both kinds). Do you know what the cone roller thingy is called? I would love to buy one and try my hand at it.

Sounds like the Norwegian version of the Italian Pizzell. Pizell? Pizzelle?

Alix it is called a cone roller thingy - I have no clue. But I have seen it in cooking supply stores. I would imagine if you described it as being an instrument to make cones they would know. I see some ice cream stores make their own cones, and they use them so they should be around. I have had this thing so long I cannot even remember where I got it. Does your MIL also bring lutefisk? Does she make smør boller, sand bakkles, pepperkakker? She must be Norwegian. Say Gød Jul to her, or you probably already know that.

Yes she is Norwegian, and NO she doesn't bring lutefisk. No offence but BLECH! It tastes like soap. Must be the lye. She brings all kinds of tasty goodies, but to be honest...I don't know all their names.

And to date, my only norwegian is Uff da! and God Yul. LOL!!

If you go to http://www.cooking.com/products/shprodde.asp?SKU=185779 you can see what one looks like. They sell it as an attachment to their Waffle Cone Express.

It's also called Krumkake, krumkaker. This year I bought the most awesome electric iron. I've been doing it on the stove for years. It's a Chefs Choice out of the Chefs catalog. I water my batter down to make them thin as possible. Yes it's a roller thingy! :D
