Krumkake (A Norwegian Waffle Cookie)

  • Author: Kelsey Restemayer


A traditional Norwegian cookie. Popular at Christmastime.



  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour



  1. Beat the eggs and sugar until lemon colored and light.
  2. Mix in the melted butter, salt, nutmeg, vanilla, heavy cream, and flour.
  3. Pre-heat your krumkake iron.
  4. Drop by spoonful onto a krumkake iron. (I used about 2 teaspoons, but you may have to experiment with the right amount to fill your iron.)
  5. You may need to press down on the iron a bit if your iron does not have a clamp. You want the cookie to be fairly thin to roll.
  6. Cook until light brown.
  7. Remove and roll with the krumkake rolling pin.
  8. Press down for a few seconds to “seal.”
  9. Be sure to roll before the cookie cools. It hardens quickly.
  10. Store until you’re ready to serve. Holiday tins work great.
  11. Enjoy!
