Krumkake (cookies)

Ingredients:


4 eggs 
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour 
1 cup of sugar 
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted (this is one stick) 
2 Tablespoons corn starch
1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract 
1/2 Teaspoon cardamom seed 




I break open the eggs into a large bowl and add the sugar.  Whisk until it is blended.  Add the cooled butter or margarine, cardamom seed and vanilla.  I add extra vanilla and sometimes almond extract as well.  I seem to like a lot of flavor but if you don't then just stick to the recipe as is...it will be delicious!!

Sift the flour and corn starch into the mixture and whisk for about 2 minutes to get it mixed to a dough like consistency.  I use 1 large tablespoon and place about a 1 inch ball on each side of the Krumkake machine grill.  It usually takes about 1 1/2 minutes to cook.

Take the flattened cookie off the grill and roll it with your Krumkake roller to make cone shaped cookies or you can leave flat.  Taste great and beautiful design on each cookie or cone!

Children as well as Adults love the cones with a few marshmallows in the bottom topped with ice cream!  These can be used as homemade ice cream cones!!!  Perfect for treats or parties!
