Cookies Made With Special Irons

Cookies bring back many fond memories from the earliest recollections of that special event or treat to the comfort of coming home from school to a glass of milk and a cookie. Cookies reflect not only special memories but the special people who baked them for us and served them with love. By definition, a cookie can be any of a variety of hand-held, flour-based sweet cakes, either crisp or soft.

Norwegian Krumkake - Swedish Rosettes - Pizelles Cookies

Norwegian Krumkake

Krumkake is a Norwegian waffle cookie made of flour, butter, eggs, sugar, and cream. Krumkake are traditionally made during the Christmas season.

A special decorative two-sided iron griddle, similar to a waffle iron, is used to bake the thin round cakes. Older irons are used over the stove, but modern electric irons offer the convenience of nonstick surfaces, automatic timing, and multiple cakes per batch. While hot, the 5-8" krumkake are rolled into small cones around a wooden or plastic cone form. Krumkake can be eaten plain or filled with whipped cream.

Norwegian Krumkake Recipe

1/2c. sugar

1/2c. margerine

1 t. lemon flavoring or cardamom

3 eggs

1/2c. flour

Beat eggs and sugar well. Melt butter. Add to mixture. Add flour and flavoring. Mix well.

Heat iron on stove. Open the iron, pour 1 tablespoon of batter onto the iron and close. Cook for 1 or 2 minutes and flip the iron. They are done when lightly brown.

Lift off the cookie with spatula or knife and quickly roll it around the wooden cone. These cookies can be rolled in powdered sugar but we like them plain.

Fill with whipped cream if you like.

Pizelles Cookies

Pizzelles are Italian waffle-like cookies made from flour, sugar, eggs, and butter and typically flavored with anise or vanilla. The name pizzelle comes from the Italian pizze, meaning "flat" or "round."

Pizzelles have a unique history. According to legend, in 700 BCE, snakes had infested Abruzzo, in south central Italy, and after they were banished, the townspeople celebrated by eating pizzelle. To this day, pizzelles are eaten to celebrate the Festival of the Snakes, now known as the Feast Day of San Domenico.

Pizzelles were originally baked over open fire using irons that were embossed with a family or village crest. Today they are made using a pizzelle iron, which is similar to a waffle iron.
