Krumkake, Rosettes and Sandbakkles

 Continuing on with our Norwegian Holiday Traditions in Baking.

This is a delicate Norwegian cookie, almost like a waffle cone. You need a krumkake iron and the little cone that you wrap them around. They aren’t as hard as the may look to make. They are very delicate and you can eat them plain or fill them with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

These are called Rosettes. They sell all kinds of attachments for different shapes. My Father gave me 2 huge sets before he died. You make the batter. Heat the oil. Let your irons get hot and then dip them in the batter and then dip them in the hot oil and they float off the iron when done. Dust with powdered sugar and store stacked between wax paper sheets. They are very delicate and delicious!lefse10

These lovelies are called Sandbakkles or Sand Tarts. They are pretty time consuming so have some friends over. You can fill them with whatever you want but ours never make it to the filling stage!

And last but not least The Christmas Bread or JuleKage.

So these are the most important of our holiday foods. I hope you give them a try and share some of your own!lefse6

Enjoy and don’t forget to grab your ‘cuppa today!  xxP

    Yet another first for me-that’s two in one day! Very interesting and lovely information you have here! I just read another blog that talked about smoked tea-never heard of that either. I love learning new things and seeing what other cultures eat! Happy Thanksgiving to you!

    We had all those with John’s family. When we went to Norway, years ago, we bought a krumkake iron in a hardware store. The rest of the family bought electric ones, but I love our old one. Will you be making all of these this year?
