The quintessential Norwegian Christmas cookie – krumkaker. Serve as a cone plain as is or in a bowl shape filled with whipped cream and multe berries or jam. For this recipe you will need a krumkaker iron and a cone shaper, both of which can be found on Amazon.
- 250g (1¼ cup) sugar
- 4 eggs
- 250g butter, melted
- 250g (1 cup) flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cardamon
- Whip eggs and sugar together until fluffy. The mixture should be pale yellow in color and fluffy in texture.
- Stir in the melted butter, flour and cardamom. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
- Cool dough in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
- Place a large tablespoon sized amount of batter into the center of the hot krumkaker iron.
- Bake the dough until they are a slight golden brown on medium-low heat.
- When the dough has turned golden brown, use a cone shaper to form the krumkaker into cones while the dough is warm. Alternatively, you can shape the hot krumkaker into a bowl shape using the bottom of a turned up coffee mug.
- Once the cookie has cooled, enjoy plain as is, or fill with whipped cream and multe berries or your favorite jam.
- Store krumkaker in an air-tight container.

Mmmm! My husband’s grandparents were from Norway, so these are a Christmas tradition, along with sandkake (sp?). So glad to see all of these great recipes that bring back childhood memories for him. Thanks for the site – and thanks for the food!
