Krumkager ( Krumkake in Norway; Krumkaagen in Sweden)
Why I Love This Recipe
Danish/Norwegian/Swedish Cookies, cooked in an iron. I have an old stove top model, but I am sure they make electric ones. These are similar to the Italian Pizzelle, but they are flavored with Mace & Cardamom instead of anise.
Ingredients You'll Need
3 large eggs
1 cup super fine sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
1/2 teaspoon Mace
1/4 tsp Cardamom
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Orange Zest
Beat eggs in mixing bowl until very light.
Add sugar gradually, beating to blend.
Slowly add melted butter
Whip the heavy cream with vanilla, mace & cardamom
Fold in the whipped cream.
Fold in flour. (Dough will be similar in consistency to pate a choux.)
Chill dough thoroughly.
Preheat krumkager iron over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until a drop of water "dances" when dropped on plates.
Brush plates with unsalted butter; place 1 slightly rounded tablespoon dough in center of lower plate; close iron and press handles together.
If excess dough comes out sides, remove with table knife.
Bake for about 30 seconds; flip iron and bake for about 30 seconds on other side.
Remove krumkager and immediately roll over cone-shaped form.
Place seam side down on parchment paper to cool; remove form.
Store in an airtight container.
Wait to fill until ready to serve of they will absorb moisture and collapse... These are very delicate cookies.
Fill cooled cones with stabilized whipped heavy cream or Cardamom Pastry Cream, that has been lightened by folding in 1 cup of whipped heavy cream (1/2 cup Un-Whipped)
