That's what I thought, Andy. The design really doesn't make any difference to me. My pizzelle iron has some really pretty designs anyhow. The pizzelle batter/dough is a bit different from the krumkake recipe, but I'm sure I can handle it. I have a wooden cone to roll either types of cookie on, so that's not an issue.
I probably won't get around to making them until after Christmas since time is rapidly running out. I've already added a recipe each of lebkuchen and fattigmands to my list. Hadn't originally planned to make either one, but some evil little cookie-eating voice on my shoulder made me do it.
Glenn's mother mentioned on Tuesday that her mother used to make lebkuchen when she was a little girl and that it was her favorite homemade cookie. I'm not going to tell her I've made them. I'll just have Glenn's son put a wrapped box of them on her kitchen table while she's at our house for Christmas dinner. It will say Santa brought them.
