I am sharing a recipe from my neighbour. She showed my family how to make and enjoy a wonderful Norwegian traditional cookie. She served it with whipping cream but they are fantastic just plain.


½ c unsalted butter

1 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 cup milk

1 ½ cup flour

½ tsp vanilla

½ tsp butter flavouring (optional)


Heat electric krumkake or pizzelle iron.

Cream together the butter and sugar in a bowl. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix well using a spoon. Pour in the milk, flour vanilla and butter flavouring mix well.

Place a teaspoon of the batter on the preheated iron, and press together. Cook until browned, about 30 seconds per side, depending on the heat. Remove from the iron and quickly roll up around a stick or around a cone before they harden.
