RECIPE BACKSTORY
My grandma Carla would make these every Christmas. It made the holidays a special time. She has been gone for many years now, and I miss her very much. We have her Krumkake iron. Similar recipes can be found online for different fillings. This one is similar to recipes you could find from the Decorah, Iowa Nordic Festival that happens every year in July.
