Krumkaker “...are absolutely a Norwegian Christmas tradition, and one that
many . . . Norwegian American friends grew up with. They’re made using a
krumkakejern, or krumkake iron, much like a waffle iron but covered in beautiful
patterns. Traditional irons are used on the stovetop and must be flipped to
ensure that both sides are fully cooked, but [there are] modern electric version[s].”
“Once each krumkake is done cooking, you remove it from the iron and roll
it around a small cone (or sometimes a cylinder) and let it cool on a rack.
The result, to American eyes, looks a lot like a fancy waffle cone for ice
cream....” Krumkaker are often filled with whipped cream and cloudberry jam.
