Norwegian Krumkake

A Krumkake is a traditional Norwegian waffle cookie. They are similar to the Italian Pizzelle but much thinner and crisp. Traditionally, served with whipped cream & berries, the dessert comes together like a symphony. It’s one of the most simplest pleasures ever, plus, they’re also super fun to eat!


Lemon Whipped Cream (optional)


  1. Preheat your iron and set up your cooling rack, oil & silicone brush.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until full mixed.
  3. Gently stir in the cooled, melted butter, vanilla & cardamom.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, corn starch. Carefully add it to the egg mixture and gently stir. Batter will have a thick consistency.
  5. With your silicone brush, grease the iron on both sides with the oil.
  6. Using a cookie scoop (size will depend on your iron, it may take a tester cookie to get the amount right if it's your first time), drop the dough onto the iron. Press the top of the iron down and allow to bake for about 45-60 seconds (again, bake time will depend on your iron; mine was about 45-50 seconds).
  7. Using a fork, remove the cookie from the baker. At this point, you can shape into a cone, bowl, roll up or keep plain. Allow the cookie to fully cool on the cooling rack.

Lemon Whipped Cream

  1. Add all ingredients into a large bowl. Using a mixer with a whisk attachment, beat the ingredients until stiff peaks form.
  2. Whipped cream & cookies can be made ahead of time. Just before you're about to serve, fill the cookies with the whipped cream.
  3. Fill a piping bag with the whipped cream (also fitted with a star tip), and pipe the cream into the the cookie. If the cookie is a cone shape, fill until just about all the way full. If you have a cylinder shape, fill each end of the cookie halfway with the cream.
  4. Top with fresh berries if desired!
